Adding cameras to Intelligent Insights
Intelligent Insights makes use of Bosch cameras’ built-in Video Analytics to interpret video images and collect metadata from cameras. This metadata is collected, aggregated, and displayed using a series of pre-defined widgets within a user defined dashboard to visualize the data. It enables users to easily evaluate a complete scene covered by multiple cameras. Situations involving data of moving objects, counting data, and crowds captured by multiple cameras can be visualized in real-time, providing complete understanding of the situation. Read on to learn how to add cameras to Intelligent Insights.

Once Intelligent Insights is installed and licensed, cameras can be added manually or by importing a CSV file.

To add the cameras manually, click the Cameras button and then select the + icon. Choose the communication protocol - HTTPS is selected by default.
Enter the camera's IP address, port number, user name, and password. Click Save.

Click the camera to access its configuration settings.

The sync connection button will update the camera information and check if the camera is online.
To add cameras by importing a CSV file, create the CSV file using Configuration Manager. In Configuration Manager, select all of the cameras to be added to Intelligent Insights and click on the Table View. Select Export and select a location for the Export.

Next, go to the Intelligent Insights Cameras menu section and click the Import configuration button.
In the Import configuration dialog window, click the Choose File button and select the file you have prepared.

Select the checkbox if all cameras have the same login details. Type in the user name and password for the cameras in the table. Click Import and OK.
Tip: Time Sync
When adding cameras, make sure they are time synced with the Intelligent Insights server.
