Heatmaps (Beta)

Motion-based heatmaps give an overview of motion in an area over a selected time period, with red indicating more activity, and blue indicating less activity.

Example heatmap showing areas of higher motion activity in red, and areas of lower motion activity in blue.

To view heatmaps on any camera, select Heatmaps from Watch Video:

Cameras from the site are listed on the left. Drag and drop any camera to the Heatmap Preview to view the Heatmaps. By default, new heatmaps will be generated for yesterday, between 12-1pm.

To change the time duration of the heatmap, use the time selectors to update the date and time to the desired duration. Motion activity is calculated for the time range on each date of the date range. For example, selecting 1-2pm for March 27 to March 31 generates a heatmap that gives an overview of the motion activity between 1-2pm on each day from March 27 to March 31, not for activity between 1pm March 27 until 2pm March 31. The heatmap will automatically adjust

Heatmaps can only be generated when there is motion data available. Heatmaps can only be generated from video available on the appliance. Heatmaps cannot be generated from restored Cloud Archive video.

To generate multiple heatmaps, select  underneath the Heatmap Preview.

To download each heatmap, select to download the heatmap as an image.
