Camlytics user guide

Overview of Camlytics Camera Software, and how to get started with it.

If you added your channel via Camera Wizard please make sure you entered correct stream URI.
In case if stream URI is correct try to set different streaming format in channel settings (UDP, TCP or HTTP).
If nothing helps, try to change your camera's streaming codec and/or resolution in it's web settings.

It all depends on your camera configuration. If you have just one channel with 640x480 resolution and basic analytics enabled you will be just fine with basic Intel Atom or similar.
If you have 6-9 channels with heavy motion you'll need Intel i7 or similar.
It also depends on your calibration, the smaller the objects are - the more powerful hardware you'll need.

The most important quality of camera is its stability - the video stream should not drop accidentally.
Otherwise, any camera with RTSP streming and preferably ONVIF support should be fine.
If it's a webcam, it should also be tested for overheating.

If you use Camlytics just for camera events (people counting, motion detection, etc.), the smaller resolution - the better. Internally the video stream is downsampled in any case so it would be a waste of CPU resources to use full HD resolution and have it downsampled to 320x240 on each frame.
Therefore, if you don't need the specific size for video recording, use the lowest resolution possible - 640x480 or even 320x240 or similar.

When you minimize Camlytics it will go into tray and will stop all video rendering, but will continue processing stream - basically working as a service.
But if you want to start the program after a server reboot without having to have the user log in you can get it working as a service using srvany.exe from the Windows Resource Kit.

Just add the Video File as a channel. More details here.

First, make sure your events / notifications are enabled in channel Events settings, second make sure your Global settings are set up correctly. If you are using Gmail SMTP service make sure Less secure apps sitting is enabled (
