Object Size: As the title suggests, it is used to define the size of object. Object size is a sensitive and critical element to do identification. Therefore, when setting the size, please notice that the size must be as close as the object you want to detect or misjudgment may occur. For example, it would misjudge one to two people if the frame is smaller than the object you want to detect.

Where to place the frame of object size on the preview window does not matter. It does not affect the function of people counting.

Direction and size of detection line: You may adjust the direction and position of detection line by dragging the blue line in preview window. Walking to where the arrow sign points means in; otherwise, means out.

14 Master-Slave Architecture

We add the new function of Master-Slave architecture by upgrading Skywalk NVRs to meet the demand of the enterprise market. It completes the design of NVR groups that a single

Windows AP (SClient) can simultaneously log in the group of all NVRs.

The characters of NVR consist of Standalone, Master and Slave. The factory default is

Standalone for stand-alone operation that Windows AP (SClient) can log in one by one. As for Master and Slave, they are part of group management. The functions of each character describe as below:

Master NVR:

The Master NVR takes charge of group management and all of the functions of NVR. It can get the device information of all NVRs in the group and list the channel info in the device list by logging in Master NVR on Windows AP (SClient). Besides, it collects the authentication and management of eMap for being a role of gateway to communicate with SClient/ iSecuCloud and NVRs connecting Intranet and Internet.

Slave NVR:

Slave NVR is a simple system that is under the management of Master NVR. Therefore, all of the services must authenticate to Master NVR.

The characters of NVR can switch by the management of Windows AP (SClient). The following sections describe how to group and ungroup NVRs by management:

172

14.1 Network Settings on Local Display

To join Master-Slave architecture and prevent the Skywalk NVRs from losing due to the change of dynamic IP address, we suggest you setup the static IP address on Skywalk NVR.

181

14.4 Ungrouping Slave NVR(s) When Master NVR is

abnormal

If Master NVR is abnormal (including network issues), all of the authentication will be invalid.

This will cause all of the clients would be unable to log in. To solve this situation, Slave NVR can depart from the Master-Slave group. Here are two solutions for you: (1) Ungroup Slave

NVR(s) by SClient and (2) Ungroup Slave NVR(s) by Local Display

14.4.1 Ungroup Slave NVR(s) by SClient
