1. Introduction

 

Attrasoft IFSurveillance (Figure 1) is a Home Video Surveillance Software. It monitors your home automatically, and lets you see the results in a single click.

 

The software has only four buttons:

         To start, click the Start button;

         To stop, click the Stop button;

         To see the results, click the Results button;

         To improve the result, click the Parameter button.

 

The benefit of this surveillance software is to save you time. Instead of looking at hours after hours of video, in a single click (Clicking the result button), the software simply presents you with alert images only so you can see 10 hours of surveillance in 10 seconds.

There are four steps to tweak the parameters; these steps can be repeated as many times as you want.

Step 1. Click button �Open this folder, remove old contents�.

Make sure all of the old contents from earlier tweaking are removed from this folder. You will copy new data to here in the following steps.

Figure 5. Click button �Open this folder, remove old contents� and make sure all of the old contents from earlier tweaking are removed from this folder.

Step 2. Click button �2. Open Results folder, get rid of real alarms and keep only false alarm images�.

This button will open the result image folder. At the beginning, there will be some false alarm images. A few quick tweaks will get rid of these false alarms. Now, save the true alarm images elsewhere if you want to keep them, or delete the true alarm images if you do not want to keep them. Now the only images left are false alarm images, which will be used to tweak the software.

Step 3. Copy folder in step 2 to folder in step 1.

���������� This will place the false alarm images in the correct place.
