Generation Speed
The speed for generating the target frame (green) when the person enters
the detection region. If you increase this parameter, the target will
generate faster and also the false detection rate will rise. In general, it is
recommended to use the default value. Default value: 3.
Sensitivity
The sensitivity for face detection. Larger value means higher sensitivity,
more faces will be detected and also false detection rate will rise. In
general, it is recommended to use the default value. Decrease the value if
the false detection rate is high. Default value: 3.
Capture Sensitivity
The grade for face which is used for decreasing the false capture actions. If
you increase this value, then the face with better quality and clarity will be
captured. Default value: 4.
7.4.3 Behavior & Face Capture
If you set the VCA resource as Behavior& Face Capture, the speed dome provides the capability of
both behavior analysis and face capture. Perform the following steps to configure the VCA settings.

Description
The sensitivity of detecting a target. The target can be detected more
easily when the sensitivity is set higher.
It is used to adjust the rate of blending static object into the detected
scene. The rate is higher, the blending is faster.
When the target size is smaller than this minimum size, the target will
not be analyzed.
It is used to constraint the speed of generating a target. The value is
larger, the target generates harder and the false alarm will be fewer.
The rules can be triggered according to the target center, bottom or
top.
If there is a quick change of scene light, enable this function to
suppress the change.
The default value is 5s. You can set the duration to 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s
or 8s.
After enabling this function, the speed dome will find the target and
the tracking continues after the target is blocked for a while.
If you can enable this function, the speed dome stops tracking the
target after it is captured by the speed dome.
The grade for the captured face. If you want to capture a clear face
before stopping tracking, you should set a higher grade threshold.
After the speed dome gets a face picture which meets the grade
requirement, the auto-tracking stops. Default value: 6.
