Video analytics API

Camlytics software can do a range of things: count people, vehicles, classify vehicles by type, detect motion, loitering, monitor location occupancy, build heat maps, trajectory maps and more. All this data can be extracted via simple REST API or webhooks in a real time while video stream is being processed.

Both Camlytics 2.x and Camlytics Cloud products support API and webhooks which makes integration with your own surveillance or business analytics solution much simpler.

By integrating with Camlytics API you can do a broad range of custom actions: save camera events (like Line crossed, Zone join, Zone left, Camera obstructed, Motion started and more) to a remote database, send push notifications to a mobile device, trigger remote events via webhooks and other. You can create personalized people or vehicle counting reports reports by processing the camera events in any custom way.

See the example of a real time video analytics output:

[

Example of aggregated totals (can be retrieved to avoid costly data manipulations):

[ 
  {
    "rule_id" : "046b3c7f-048a-43b9-b35d-6659e6daee51",
    "rule_name" : "Exit line",
    "channel_id" : "046b6c7f-0b8a-43b9-b35d-6489e6daee91",
    "rule_count" : 2321
  }, {
    "rule_id" : "046b6c7f-0b8a-43b9-b35d-6489e6daee91",
    "rule_name" : "Enter line",
    "channel_id" : "046b6c7f-0b8a-43b9-b35d-6489e6daee91",
    "rule_count" : 440
  } 
]

You can also extract the list of added channels:

[
 {  
      "channel_id":"16b7f471-3c62-4add-9d6d-a2607c52335b",
      "login":null,
      "name":"Video file",
      "password":null,
      "profile_name":"none",
      "profile_token":"",
      "stream_uri":"C:\\Users\\admin\\Desktop\\videos2\\06-12-2017_14-33-49.avi",
      "type":"File",
      "uri":"http:\/\/localhost\/"
   },
   {  
      "channel_id":"32226aa2-3415-452f-8d10-90933a5356d5",
      "login":null,
      "name":"Integrated Camera",
      "password":null,
      "profile_name":"none",
      "profile_token":"",
      "stream_uri":"@device:pnp:\\\\?\\usb#vid_04ca&pid_701a&mi_00#6&255a974a&0&0010#{15e8773d-8f56-11d5-a3b9-03a0c9213116}\\global",
      "type":"Webcam",
      "uri":"http:\/\/localhost\/"
   },
   {  
      "channel_id":"8f7be215-15e2-4695-b0da-da2f04d19db8",
      "login":null,
      "name":"Video device",
      "password":null,
      "profile_name":"profile0_0",
      "profile_token":"profile0_0",
      "stream_uri":"rtsp:\/\/192.168.1.6:554\/ucast\/11",
      "type":"Onvif",
      "uri":"http:\/\/192.168.1.6\/onvif\/device_service"
   }

Another powerful feature for centralized data aggregation are webhooks - you can collect data from multiple locations (people counting results from different retail stores, for example) and manupulate it in any custom way. 2.x webhooks are available for single analytical events, fired real time, as well as for grouped events totals, fired every hour and every day (group by event type, trigger name and channel id). You can read more about sending Camlytics 2.x events to a Google Sheets cloud storage.

Both 2.x and Cloud solutions are free to try instantly. Don't miss your chance to deep dive into video analytics API!
