This exciting new feature lets Netcam Watcher count and analyse traffic along a road, customers in a store, products on a production line and many other things.
To use, first you need to define a tripwire on a camera, by clicking on Edit Tripwire on the Edit Cam dialog, Recording and Saving tab. Like this:
In the example above, the tripwire (in red) will count vehicles passing along the road.
You can set Netcam Watcher to count and log the trips, and/or it can generate a motion event when the tripwire is tripped. This can be used to generate an alarm.
After Netcam Watcher has collected tripwire data, you can analyze the data for up to 4 cameras at a time by selecting the cameras and then clicking Tools > Analyze Trips for Selected Cameras from the main menu.
This will produce a graph in the format of your choice. Here is a 2D Bar Graph:
Or here is a 3D Line graph:
Or you can view the data as a text report:
In addition to this, you can export the data in CSV format. This allows you to import into a variety of programs including databases (like MS Access) and spreadsheets (like MS Excel)
