Optiview_2020_Iconset_Face Detection

Detect human faces and trigger snapshot, record, or alarm. Face Recognition available w/ compatible camera.

Optiview_2020_Iconset_Perimeter Protection - Intrusion
Perimeter Protection

Combine Tripwire & Intrusion with object detection (people or vehicles) for advanced motion detection.

Intelligent Motion Detection (SMD)

Advanced motion detection that filters out false alarms and only triggers with people or vehicles.

Smart H.265+

Reduce bit rate and storage requirements by up to 80% when compared to H.265.

Infinity Scroll - HD Resolutions


4K resolution captures images four times the pixel density of 1080P which means that the finer details, such as faces or smaller items can be viewed with more detail than traditional 1080P surveillance.


Intelligent Motion Detection Plus, or ID+, is an upgraded version of ID that greatly improves the alarm accuracy only triggering motion detect when people or vehicles are detected, filtering out tree movement, lighting changing, and more.

SMART H.265+

Reduce bit rate and storage requirements by up to 80% when compared to standard H.265 (up to 90% vs H.264), allowing video to be stored for longer periods of time.


Combine multiple tripwire and intrusion IVS rules with object (people or vehicle) detection to enable advanced motion detection alarms and alerts. Ideal for crosswalks, parking lots, communities, lawns, schools, and more.

Perimeter Protection - Infinity
Infinity Scroll - People Counting


The NVR8P8-2S detects and tracks target by using advanced image processing technology and deep learning algorithm. You can draw 4 polygon areas, and count people in each area; When the number of the people in the area is greater than or equal to/lower than or equal to the defined threshold, the
alarm will be triggered.
