2 Introduction
2.1 Description
The VS-PeCo is a digital video recorder-transmitter which works through diverse communication
networks (LAN, WAN, Internet), offering optimized transmission frequencies and a great image quality.
A VS-Peco unit has a local interface for its use in the place where it is located and an interface for its
use in remote. Both are similar in appearance and functionality.
Because it can be accessed and operated simultaneously in local or remotely, the VS-PeCo is the ideal
solution to carry out the observation, surveillance and security of one or multiple sites.
2.2 Functionality
Local operation
The unit is ready for its use in a local scenario. It only needs to be connected to the mouse (PS2) and
to a VGA monitor. As an option it also can be connected to a keyboard and to two CCTV monitors.
Remote operation
The unit can transmit live or recorded video images, as well as counting data, to one or several
operator workstations simultaneously connected to the same network (LAN, WAN or Internet) using the
TCP/IP protocol over Ethernet.
Images recording
The unit can record simultaneously from all the cameras (not-synchronized cameras, colour or black
and white, PAL format). Recording conditions and frequency (ips) may be defined individually for each
camera depending on calendars or time lapse, and/or the activation of external events and video
User Manual - 3
motion detectors. The time shifts allow the specification of different recording frequencies based on the
opening hours for public places or shops. Devices connected to the digital input alarms of the unit, as
presence detectors, door contactors, etc., generate the external events.
A VS-PeCo unit can record as many as 25/50/75 ips (according to the model) distributed between all
the cameras. The images obtained from each camera are stored in the hard disk as independent video
sequences. The unit has an automatic erasing tool to eliminate sequences no longer valid (out of the
date defined by the user). Factory setting for this feature is 365 days.
Image transmission
The image compression system allows for the transmission of up to 25 images per second, depending
on the available communications bandwidth and the people counter configuration.
The unit allows simultaneous connection of several remote users –either by using Internet Explorer
or/and the Supervisor VS reception and management software - to visualize, record and/or play back
video sequences without affecting the recording or the local operation.
Security
The unit indicates automatically when the hard disk runs out of free space; in this case the unit works
normally and when more space is needed the oldest sequences are deleted.
People counter
Easy to install, with a ceiling mount camera for each access area and no
barriers needed, the people counter sensors are based on the digital analysis
of the images. They are capable of counting multiple persons passing
simultaneously through the access zone, discriminating between in and out
accesses.
Configuration
The (remote/local) configuration interface shows and allows for the edition of the system general data,
timetables, configuration of the cameras and people counter, recording schedules, automatic activation
of the relay outputs, etc.

3 Installation and set up
3.1 Different VS-PeCo models
You can find out what particular VS-PeCo model you are using by reading the label on the front or
thbottom of the unit. The available models are identified by the product code:
VSnxx-PeCoyy-HDD
Being “n” is the model identifier, “x” the number of video inputs of the unit, “y” is the maximum number
of people counters, and HD the hard disk size.
The VS202RAM-PeCo2 unit doesn‟t have hard disk and therefore can not record or export images.
3.2 Unit package contents
Open the box and check that the following items are included in it:
Required model.
PS-2 Mouse
Power cable.
RJ45 cable (blue) for TCP/IP communication.
Crossover network cable for direct connection (labelled with this name)
VS-PeCo User Manual (this document)
CD that contains the VSFinder application, necessary to configure the network information of
any VS-PeCo unit from the LAN.
3.3 Unit installation
To install the unit follow the steps set below. It is recommended to have at sight the diagrams of the
cover pages.
1. Unpack the contents of the box and put the unit onto its final installation location. Make sure
that all the items enumerated above are present in the box. Tip: write down in a piece of paper
the unit serial number, it will be useful to identify it when using the configuration software.
2. Connect the TCP/IP communications cable provided with the unit (blue) in the RJ45 socket
(Ethernet network adapter 10/100Base T) .
3. Connect the alarm input/output cables to the screw terminal female connectors provided with
the equipment, and these to the unit ,. Check the pin layout included in the diagrams back
page (figure C).
The alarm inputs do not have galvanic isolation, so the activation / deactivation of the digital
signals requires voltage-free contacts, thus allowing the isolation of the sensor and the unit.
The power consume when the digital input is activated through a contactor potential-free or an
output open collector sensor is 0.5 mA.
The relay outputs, that provide either normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) contacts, can
be used to verify when the hard disk is full or to distinguish between “working hours” or “non
working hours” . Their electrical features are:
▪
Maximum switching voltage: 24V AC/DC
▪
Maximum switching current: 1 A
User Manual - 5
4. Connect the cameras to the BNC connectors of the unit  using an appropriate 75 Ohms coax
cable (not supplied with the unit) .
The unit is provided with video inputs for B&W or colour cameras, PAL format, not necessarily
synchronized. Each camera has to be connected to the unit through a 75 Ohms coax cable with
a male BNC connector at the unit end. Each connection or splice produces a slight change in
the impedance, so all the cable used must be one-piece cable, without splices or derivations.
5. Do not forget to adjust the 75 Ohms / load terminator (default setting = 75 Ohms) by shifting
the switch  to the high impedance position ( ) when connecting a camera signal to the unit
and to another device already loaded with 75 Ohms (for instance, a TV monitor).
Any error in the adaptation of impedance will produce unwanted or even unacceptable side
effects on the image, like burnt image, ghosting or ringing on the image edges, or even loss of
the image.
6. In case of domes you will have to connect the control cable to the unit serial port. In some
cases you will need to use a RS-485 / 422 to RS-232 protocol converter. Refer to the technical
notes.
7. The unit has two analogue video output , which provides video-cycles (3 seconds per
camera), showing images of the cameras with signal connected to the unit. If you are going to
connect a monitor to the output, do it now. The cable must have the same characteristics as the
one used for the video inputs.
8. Verify that the voltage of the unit power adapter  matches the voltage specifications of your
power source. Use the cable provided in the package to connect the unit and plug it into the
power supply. The power connector is located in the rear left part of the unit.
9. The unit starts working automatically when it is plugged into the power supply, or when power is
recovered after a supply loss. Do not forget to unplug the unit off any time you need to connect
or disconnect any of the external items. The unit has an informative led on its front side
informing about the state of the machine (on / off).

Camera installation for people counting
Proper camera position: The sensor identifies a person in the image by its width as seen from an
overhead position (shoulders width). In order to avoid this width being distorted by the position of the
person in the image or by its height, the camera should be installed at a proper height and centrered
over the reference cross-line.
h
A
C
A‟
B
B‟
B
B‟
C‟
Fig. 1 - Camera installation tips for people counting
Take into account that the higher the position of the camera, the smaller the variation due to the
perspective. The recommended height should be at least equal to the shoulders width, as it can be
seen in the diagram (h AA‟). The camera height to the floor should be never lower than 3 meters.
An insufficient height of the camera may cause too big differences between two people with different
heights, making it difficult for the system to distinguish between one or two people.
Camera lens: The vision field of the camera must be wide enough to cover the whole passing area, not
at ground level (BB‟) but at an average shoulders height (CC‟), because this is the point where the
person appearance is wider (the closer to the camera, the bigger the relative size). Verify this with real
images of people passing through the target area, otherwise the reference line at ground level may
mislead you to a wrong estimation.
3.5 Local start of the unit from the same unit
The network configuration of the VS-PeCo unit can be fulfilled in local by connecting to the unit a VGA
monitor and the mouse supplied with the unit.
A login screen will be displayed. Select the user level Administrator and type the default
password for this level: “administrator”.
To type the password you can use the virtual keyboard of the application, which icon can be
found at the lower left side of the screen.
User Manual - 7
Once in the application choose the option “Configuration” of the main menu and then the “Network”
sub-menu. There fill in the data corresponding to the network information and save the changes. For
the remainder configuration please refer to the corresponding chapter of this manual.
3.6 Remote start of the unit from the local network (LAN)
Although the user can be connected to the unit via TCP/IP, whether by using the local network or
remotely through ADSL, THE INITIAL UNIT CONFIGURATION MUST BE ALWAYS PERFORMED BY
USING THE SAME LOCAL NETWORK, so it will be necessarily to connect the unit and the computer
to the same sub network or to use the crossover cable provided with the unit.
Once the physical connections are established, start the VSFinder program contained in the installation
CD. This program identifies all the units connected to the network. If several units appear in the list of
units found, you can identify the one you are about to configure through its identity (prefix SN followed
by a 14 digits number), which can be found in a label stuck to the unit, under the field name „identity‟.
Select it by double clicking the corresponding line.
Fig. 2 – VSFinder
Then you will see a screen to enter the IP address, the gateway address and the network mask, values
that should be provided by the network administrator. From that moment on you will be able to access
de unit through its IP address, whether local or remotely (through ADSL). This configuration using the
VSFinder only has to be done once.
To access the unit through ADSL you must configure the NAT table of the router to define a
correspondence between the router global IP and the unit local IP. For more information about this
subject please check the technical note about Internet connection.
User Manual - 8
4 Remote use
The basic scenario presupposes one or more VS-PeCo units connected to the same communication
network, LAN or Internet, and one or more operator posts (PCs with Internet Explorer) that contact via
TCP/IP.
To work with the unit, the user has a remote interface, whose screens and functionality are described
next.
4.1 Remote operator post requirements
To use a normal PC as a remote operator workstation, this must fulfil some minimum requirements:
PC or laptop with Microsoft Windows XP.
SVGA graphic card, 1.024x768 pixels, true colour.
15” Colour monitor (17” recommended)
Ethernet 10/100 base T card.
Mouse and keyboard.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher. Please make sure that the security options are set
to medium (“Tools”/”Internet Options”/”Security”/”Default level”/”Medium”).If you are using a
customized security level check that the following options are marked:
Scripting
- Active scripting -> Enable
UActiveX controls and plug-ins.
- Initialize and Script ActiveX controls marked as safe. -> Enable.
- Download signed ActiveX controls.-> Enable / Promt.
- Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins. -> Enable
UMiscellaneousU:
- Submit nonencrypted form data.-> Enable / Promt.
- Allow meta refresh -> Enable
UDownloads.
- File download-> Enable
4.2 Connection process
If the unit is on the same local network as you are, you will need to type in your Internet Explorer the
local IP address of the unit .
If on the other hand you want to connect to the unit trough the Internet (external connection) you will
need to type the public IP of the unit (if this is an fixed IP address) or connect to identity.dnsvideo.net (if
the unit has a dynamic IP address). The identity number, that you will find on a sticker at the bottom of
the unit, is made up of the letters SN plus the internal serial number of the unit. As an example, if we
have a VS-PeCo unit with identity SN03060963151234 the connection address will be
SN03060963151234.dnsvideo.net.
To obtain more information about how the dynamic IP works please check the technical note “Internet
Connection” available in www.videosafe.net
Note:
If you need to know the identity of a unit and do not have it at hand you can find it out running the VSFinder
application from a PC within the same local network as the VS-PeCo and that will give you the internal serial
number of the unit. To obtain the identity you just need to add the letters SN in from of the internal S/N of the
unit.

The local scenario of the VS-PeCo presupposes a VS-PeCo unit connected to a 1024x768 VGA
monitor and to the supplied mouse and, as an option, also to two CCTV monitors, one for
visualization of the active camera or the sequence and the other for alarm monitoring.
To work with the unit, the local user has an interface similar in appearance and functions to the
remote one, whose screens and functionality are described next.
5.1
Login screen
When connecting to a VS-PeCo, you will see the login screen where the language wanted to use
must be selected. Select your user level and enter the password whose validation will grant you
access to the functionality associated to that user level.
There are three user levels:

UOperatorU – access to the live video screen.

PeCoU – access to the people counter and live video screens.

USupervisorU – Access to live and recorded video.

UAdministratorU – access to live video, recorded video and configuration screens
The default passwords are the same that the ones used for the remote access (refer to the first
page of the manual). You should always change the system passwords when you finish the
installation process, to prevent unwanted access to your units, in the configuration screen
(Administrator user level). If you forget the passwords you can reset the default values by clicking
the factory settings button.
If you do not have a keyboard, the application has a virtual one. This is displayed when clicking on
the keyboard icon placed at the lower left side of the login screen.

It has a 768x576 pixels main viewer and different panels where the user can consult all information
related to the unit (status, cameras, inputs and outputs) and control the visualization of the
sequence (type of screen, touring, dome control, monitors…)
The different elements and their functionality are described next.
Unit and disk information
On the right upper side of the screen is displayed the name of the unit and the current date and time.
Below this information there is a panel where the user can find an icon of the hard disk with indication
of its occupancy and its free percentage.
Fig. 25 – Unit disk information
When the free percentage is below 5%, the text will be displayed in red to alert the operator.
Likewise, the disk icon will vary if there is a disk failure or if it has been protected with the custody
key.
If the hard disk does not work, over the disk icon will
appear an alarm icon; if the unit has two hard disks and
one of them does not work, the alarm icon will appear on
top of two disks. And, if the unit detects a second disk but
this has not been declared and therefore not watched
over, a question mark will appear on top of the icon.
If an error or anomaly is detected in the file system, an icon appears over the disk
indicating that the disk requires maintenance.
If the custody key is activated, over the icon of the disk will appear a padlock icon.
(for more information about the custody key refer to the remote interface live
video paragraph)
User Manual - 23
If more than one incidence happens at the same time, only the most important one will be
displayed.
Monitor and camera control
At the right side of the viewer there is the monitor and camera control panel.
This panel contains information of the connected cameras and allows for the selection of those to be
displayed in each monitor (VGA, MON1 and MON2).

Monitors
VGA is the operation monitor. Allows for 1x1 2x2, 3x3, 4x4 camera visualizations and camera
sequence in normal and in full screen mode. This monitor is available if the local video visualization
option it‟s enabled (by default) if not, the active monitor will be MON1.
MON1 is the monitor for the visualization of the sequence -previously defined by the user in the camera
configuration screen of the application- or for the visualization of any of the cameras selected by the
operator from the camera panel for this monitor.
MON2 is the monitor for the visualization of the alarm sequences. It shows the las camera that has
generated an alarm and remains on it until the manual selection of other camera by the operator
(attended alarm) or until a new alarm is generated.
Cameras
The camera panel allows for the selection of the camera or cameras to be shown in the selected
monitor at that moment. The selection is manual and is made selecting the corresponding icon. If a
camera with no signal is selected, the screen of the main viewer will turn blue.
In normal screen visualization, the camera information shows a reference number, a status icon and
the name previously defined in the camera configuration screen of the application for each camera. In
full screen visualization only the reference number and the status icon are shown.
If a camera has been selected by the operator but a new alarm takes place, this will prevail over the manual selection and will be
displayed on Monitor 2.
User Manual - 24
The colour of the icons represents the different status of a camera, which can be the following:
Green
Camera connected and with signal.
Pink
Camera on time-lapse recording
Bright red

activation/deactivation is manual and when the local recording is activated the grey colour turns to
yellow.
ONLY THE IMAGES OF THE CAMERA SELECTED FOR THE VGA MONITOR ARE AVAILABLE
FOR LOCAL RECORDINGS. If you are in multi-screen visualization, make sure the images you
want to record are in the active quad.
Multi-screen visualization
On the VGA monitor images from different cameras can be visualized simultaneously by using the
quads buttons.
The user can select 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 quads views, select which camera to display in each quad or
even associate the sequence to one quad while the others display the images of other cameras of
interest.
There is always a selected quad. The active quad has a red frame instead of having a blue one
like the others. The camera associated to the active quad will be the selected at that moment in
the VGA monitor.
To select a camera in a determined quad first select the quad, which will change its frame to red,
an then select the camera, which will also change the colour of its name to yellow. The association
cameras-quads is memorized by the application so the next time the user select a visualization
mode, this will be displayed with the cameras that where associated in the last session.

Note:
For every text field in any of the configuration menus, you can use as part of a name all the characters (letter,
number or any other sign) except single or double quotes.
Do not forget to click on “Save” once you are done with the changes to update them in the unit. You will see a
confirmation message when they are saved.
6.1 General data configuration
The General data configuration screen is the default screen when you access the Configuration menu.
Fig. 47 – Unit general data configuration screen
On this section the user can see and modify the basic information of the unit: name, address, city, etc.,
and modify the passwords of the different user levels. Also the user can set the quality for live and
recorded video, being three image quality levels: high, medium and low, with an average image size of
9, 5 and 3 KB, respectively. Finally the user can choose the default language for the unit.
The user can update the unit with the latest software versions by using the “Insert new upgrade” option,
which is available both in local and in remote. To obtain more information of the process to update a
unit, refer to the technical note “Remote unit upgrade”
User Manual - 39
If the access to the configuration is local, instead of the former option you will see the option
“Keyboard”, with which you will be able to set the virtual keyboard appearance according to the desired
language.
The “Autologin” option allows the unit to comeback to the live video screen after a reboot.
In local there is another option available. It is a Check button for the hard disk maintenance. By clicking
on this button, the screen shows a table with the detected disk and the kind of checking that can be
carried out and also offers the possibility of formatting any of the disks.
There are two types of checking. The fast one is less exhaustive but faster, and the normal one is
slower and more complete. In the case that the checking determines that the disk has an error, the
process length will change depending on the correction that has to be carried out.
The screen also shows two more buttons: the “Factory set.” button, that restores the factory settings
(see the corresponding chapter) and the “Restart” button, that restarts the unit.
6.2 Network configuration
Fig. 48 –Network data configuration screen
At this screen there are the network settings previously configured using the VSFinder application (the
DNS´s details are only necessary if the unit has a dynamic IP address) and the advanced data, which
include:
NTP configuration (Automatic time synchronization): The application automatic and periodically
synchronizes itself with an external time synchronization server. The server address by default is
pool.ntp.org. This address can be changed when a local NTP server is used.
Alarm notification: the remote unit can be configured to send an e-mail notification in case of alarm, for
this purpose it is necessary to indicate the recipient‟s e-mail address as well as the SMTP server IP
address. It is also possible to send the alarm to one or two Supervisor posts by typing their
corresponding IP addresses and Ports
The subject of the alarm message will be "Alarm!!! Unit name..., Date..., Camera..." and the message
will contain a text with the following information: date and time of the event, name of the unit, name of
the camera, name of the event, internal serial number of the unit, IP address of the unit, City and URL
with the logging address of the unit.
The message attaches also four jpeg images. Being the first image the alarm image and the rest post
alarm images separated 1 sec. of time each.
Authentication of emails notifications: To avoid spam, some servers require an identification to the
users (authentication). The authentication can be SMTP (authentication in the outgoing server) that
requires the name and password of the SMTP user or POP User (previous connection to the ingoing
server, your Internet Service Provider's server) that requires the name and the password of the POP user
User Manual - 40
and the IP address of the POP server. To know if you require authentication and the kind of it, ask your
network administrator or your Internet Provider.
Bandwidth limit: We can limit separately the bandwidth consumption over our LAN or over the Internet.
Limiting the bandwidth to transmit images prevents the unit from overloading the network when this is
also used for other purposes.
Configuring the video and HTTP ports: is useful when several units in the same local network are
connected to the Internet using the same router and sharing the same global IP number (for further
details please refer to the technical note “Internet connection”)
Dynamic IP management: it must be activated when the unit is connected to the Internet without having
a fixed IP address, otherwise it will not be possible to connect to it. If the unit works with a dynamic IP,
it is necessary to specify at least a DNS server. For more information please refer to the technical
notes on the web.
Network card configuration: It is possible to fix the type of connection at Ethernet level. By default the
value is auto, but it can be changed manually if the auto-detection does not work correctly.
Installation checking: when the “Check installation” button is clicked the system verifies the state of the
communications (gateway, DNS servers, HTTP and RTSP ports).
6.3 Fixed camera and dome configuration
The camera configuration screen allows to set the camera titles (maximum 10 characters), see and
modify the recording configuration for time-lapse (green area) and event (blue area) recordings, select
which cameras are to be considered as domes, what protocol they use and give name to their presets.
Reference image and camera selector
Camera number is a link, when pressed it shows in the upper part of the window, the factory reference
image or the image previously captured from live video screen as reference one.

Time-lapse recording
Specify the cameras you want to record in time-lapse and their recording speed both in and out of the
working hours. Timetables are defined in the Time Tables configuration screen.
Attached Sensor
It shows the association between cameras and sensors, programmed in the people counter
configuration screen (see the corresponding paragraph). It also permits sensor-cameras
associations in order to estimate the total images per second consumption of the programming
(each counter consumption is 12,5 images per second).
Event recording
Specify the cameras you want to record by event, their recording speeds and the pre-alarm and postalarm intervals. If the event triggering the recording is simple (an input or VMD) specify it on this screen
in “Alarm condition”. If the condition of the alarm is a combination of events, use the events
configuration screen to specify them. The resultant combination of events will be displayed on this
screen.
Alarm with a
multiple condition

condition
Fig. 50 – Result of the conditions for the event recording
Motion Detection
Motion detected in one camera can be used to trigger the event recording; that is that the VMD works
like a as a digital input (motion / not motion) so it can be used to activate the event recording in the
associated or in other cameras.
To access the VMD configuration screen click on the VMD button of the camera you want to configure.
User Manual - 42
Fig. 51 – VMD configuration screen
VMD Configuration: to the left of the screen you can see a panel with the motion detector number
(there are as many detectors as cameras). This number will be also the number of the associated
camera. Here you can define if the VMD is to be activated always or following a timetable and also if
this generates a normal event or an alarm event. In this case, you can also set if it must be notified by
e-mail.
To adjust the VMD there is a main viewer that shows an image of the camera associated to the VMD
that can be refresh as many times as needed. Over the image a grid with the cells in which the motion
detection is to be indicated is displayed. The cells with activated detection will be shown with a circle.
To turn a motion marked cell into a masked cell (and vice versa) , just click on it.
In the panel placed at the right, the user can select or deselect the grid cells as detecting cells, show or
hide the grid and also select the sensor sensibility (high, medium, low).
Configuration test: The configuration of the VMD can be tested by using the test button placed at the
lower left side of the screen. Before pressing the test button save the configuration in order to avoid
loosing the configuration of a previous configured VMD sensor.

User Manual - 43
The test screen shows a main viewer with the live video images and a panel at its right that represents
the grid with the masked and the motion sensitive cells. In these the user can see at every moment if
any movement has been detected and if this movement has generated or not an event.
Configurations: Delete and Copy.
Below the configuration table there are “Delete” and “Copy” buttons. The firsts delete every camera
configuration and will only be effective if the confirmation dialogue it‟s accepted and the changes are
stored.
The second copies the configuration (recording frequencies and pre and post alarm intervals) of a
selected camera to a different camera rank.
Activation and deactivation of live video in local VGA monitor
The possibility to activate/deactivate the local VGA live video visualization, which adds/deducts 25
images per second to the recording capability of the units
The number of images available it‟s automatically calculated when the option is activated/deactivated,
this way if the local video is deactivated the images per second available will be increased and if
activated will be decreased. Depending on the number of images per second previously configured to
the activation/deactivation, a message will be displayed if the configuration is not possible.
Installation checking
Clicking on the “Check” button the application will shows each camera signal level in per cent from 0 to
100.
Depending on the signal level.
Green = the camera has signal
Yellow = the camera doesn‟t have signal
Red = the signal is noisy or the level is below 40%
Sequence configuration
The “Touring” button gives access to the “Camera sequence definition” screen where the user can
define the cameras to be visualized, in which order and the seconds they remain on screen.
The screen shows two panels: one for the remote sequence definition and the other for the local
touring. The local sequence can be displayed both in the VGA monitor or in the #1 monitor.

Note:
Do not forget to click on “Save” once you are done with the changes to update them in the unit. You will see a
confirmation message when they are saved.
6.5 Event configuration
In the event configuration screen the programming associated to the digital inputs and motion detectors
can be consulted and modified. Also the digital outputs can be visualized and their working mode can
be changed.
Fig. 55 –Configuration screen: events
Digital inputs
The alarm inputs panel has different columns with the following meaning:
First column indicates the logical state of each signal (green active, red inactive). Remember that the
logical state depends on the input value and on its definition as “normally closed” or “normally open”
(configurable in the fourth column).
Second column shows the physical state of each signal (open/closed).
In the third column names of each input are showed/edited.
In the fourth column the type of contact is defined for each input (as “normally open” (NO) or “normally
closed” (NC).
The fifth column allows specifying when the signal will be considered an event to trigger images
recording (“always”, “never”, “working hours”, “non working hours”).
The sixth column (which is actually a series of check-boxes, one for each camera) allows configuring
from which cameras to record according to the activation of each input. Motion detected in one camera
can be used to trigger event recording in other cameras.
When the camera is a dome, it can be moved to a fixed preset by using the activation of a digital input.
In the column of the corresponding camera, the alarm input is associated to the number of the preset.
When the input is activated the dome will move.
The seventh column shows and allows determining the activation of each signal as alarm or not.
According to this, in the recorded video screen, the sequences will be shown as event-recorded or
alarm-recorded sequences.
The last column gives you the possibility to receive an e-mail notification with images of the event.
User Manual - 46
Digital outputs
The activation of the digital outputs can be manual or automatic. The options of the configuration for
each output are the following:
“Manual control”: in this case, the signal will have manual activation/ deactivation from the user
interface.
“95% capacity reached”: by this output (closed contact) the unit will let you know when the HDD
reaches the 95%. This does not mean that the unit is not recording but that the number of days to be
recorded may not be the expected one.
“Working time”: This output will be activated when it is in any schedule predefined as working hours.
“Event triggered”: this output will be activated whenever an event recording takes place.
“Alarm triggered”: this output will be activated whenever an alarm recording takes place.
“Autotest”: this output close a contact when the unit has started properly.
“Video loss triggered”: This output will indicate when any of the cameras has lost the video signal.
6.6 Profile configuration

People counter configuration
The people counter configuration allows to edit the activation of the people counters.
Fig. 57 – People counter configuration
Name: there are 1, 2, 3 or 5 sensors available (depending on the model), named „peco1‟, „peco2‟, etc.
U
Camera: each sensor should be associated to a camera to be enabled because if “none” is selected as
camera the counter appears as disabled. This association can also be established at camera
configuration screen, but the rest of parameters must be configured here. Several sensors can be
associated to the same camera.
U
U
U
Enabled: the sensor can be configured to work always, on working hours or on non-working hours.
In/out definition: the system differentiates between two passing directions, one considered “in” and the
other one “out”.
U
Reference line: horizontal line (as the image is viewed on the screen) that the
system uses to count each passing person. The length of the reference line has
to be calculated not at ground level but at shoulders level.
U
U
Person width as
Average person width: It is advisable to define it with a screenshot containing a
seen in the image
person on the reference line, to have a better idea of the size of a person, as
seen by the camera. This average width is used to discriminate objects from persons and to decide
whether one or two people are crossing the line at the same time.
U
U
In the right low part of the screen are displayed the counter data, this summarized definition makes
easy the creation of a new counter with the same configuration.
Counter configuration
process
On the central area, the main
viewer shows a snapshot of the
camera selected (tip: take the

two shapes
As the reference line is defined (clicking and dragging the mouse on the image), the application
superimposes the image of the line and an icon representing the shape of a person, with a size
User Manual - 48
proportional to the person width defined. Changing the value of the person width modifies the size of
this icon. “In” and “Out” senses are also indicated on the image.
The rectangle defined by the green line (non-occlusion area), containing the person image and the
reference line, has to be free of obstacles in the camera vision field; otherwise the sensor performance
might be affected.
An obstacle in the camera vision field might cause the loss of part of the image, as in the drawing on
the left. The area visible is reduced from AC to BC because of the bulk on the ceiling near the camera
The red grid drawn on the image limits the area where the reference line can be positioned. The bigger
the width of the person, the bigger the area excluded by this grid.
Also on the left box, an icon shows the current status of the sensor:
Grey icon: sensor not working - disabled, non active in current time interval,
or faulty.
Green icon: sensor is working.
At the bottom of the main viewer there are four buttons:
„Test‟, „Refresh‟, „Advanced‟, „Undo‟ and „Save‟. „Test‟
gives access to a new test screen to check the
performance of the sensor with live video images. To
test a configuration it has first to be saved (to avoid
exiting this screen without saving the current
configuration), which is done using the button „Save‟.
The „Refresh‟ button capture a new live video image
substituting the one currently displayed.
The button „Advanced‟ opens a new screen where
counter specific parameters can be modified in order to
improve the efficiency.

The button „Restore‟ gives back the configuration options to the default values. If you have made any
change press the „Save‟ button to store the made changes. Click in the „Back‟ button to come back to
the main configuration screen.
Finally, „Undo‟ discards all the changes not saved.
Testing the counter configuration
The test screen shows live video of the camera associated to the sensor. To start the test you have to
press the „Star‟ button. From that moment on, the sensor will count all the people crossing the
reference line, until the „Stop‟ button is pressed. After a few moments it will show, on a frame located
on the right, the in and out counts.
Fig. 59 – People counter configuration test
The images are seen on the screen with certain latency, so the start and stop clicks are not accurately
synchronized with the images currently displayed. For this reason, it is advisable to make sure that
nobody is crossing the line near the start and stop instants.
Once you have tested the sensor you can press again the „Start‟ button to test it again, or the “Back”
button to go back to the configuration screen.
