Object Detection

FortiCentral supports object detection in video analytics. Important detected objects, such as people, guns, or cars, are fed into the database of a FortiRecorder where they are used to trigger notifications and then forwarded to all FortiCentral workstations.

To configure object detection

  1. Select the settings button in the camera’s pane window.
  2. Select Analytics.
  3. Select Object Detection in Video from the Algorithm dropdown menu.
  4. Enable Visualize to display a bounding box around the detected object in the camera preview.
  5. Enable Detailed Analysis if a more detailed analytics network is required. Keep in mind enabling this feature will decrease processor speed.
  6. Select the type of object you want to detect from the These Types dropdown menu.
  7. Select the desired detection area. A detection area limits the space to scan for object detection. ROI areas define a special area of focus using a user-defined bounding square. The Mask type creates a black out zone where object detection does not scan.
  8. Select Apply and then OK.

To blur specific objects like a license plate, see the Privacy AI filter section in the Facial Recognition chapter.
