How can you configure a Counter Report in Bosch Remote Portal?
Camera Counter Reports are available on Bosch IP cameras capable of Essential Video Analytics or Intelligent Video Analytics, which are connected directly to the Remote Portal.
Camera Counter Reports poll counters from one or more cameras and store their values for up to 2 years in the cloud.
Note: The counts are fetched from the cameras every 15 minutes; thereby the counters are reset to 0 in the cameras every 15 minutes.
The stored data can be visualized in Remote Portal, exported as CSV data for further processing, or polled from Remote Portal through API for further processing.
The license CBS-CTRRPT-CAM is needed to subscribe the Camera Counter Report.
The Camera Counter Report includes up to 12 counters (from 1 to 12 cameras).
Note: Register the cameras to Remote Portal and organize them according to the following articles:
