Hikvision CCTV systems can support a multitude of notifications that can be configured to perform various actions from alerting your mobile phone to activating a parking barrier.
That being said, this guide talks about the three main notification options.
In its simplest form, this is when an object enters the camera view area and a motion is triggered.
An invisible line can be drawn on a particular area of your camera view area, for example the driveway threshold or the garden boundary. Once an object crosses over that line (from either way) - a line crossing is triggered.
This is similar to Motion Detection but more specific. With Intrusion Detection an invisible quadrilateral shape can be drawn on a particular area of your camera view, for example directly outside your front door. Once an object then enters that area - an intrusion detection is triggered.
With all of the options above, the system is unable to detect the difference between a human, pet or other object. This can often result in false notifications being triggered to the user. In addition to this, if the system generates the notification - it is then down to your broadband provider (router) to push the notification out to your mobile device. This will often fail if your provider is not quite up to scratch or your mobile phone is currently in an area with poor coverage.
Because of this, we do not provide support on notifications that are sent to your mobile device.
