    ⚠️ Note

    The Tech note attached to this article is only for fixed cameras.

    Looking at the chapter 4.6: resetting counter is only applicable for fixed cameras.

    For moving cameras:

    • The counter gets also a reset after moving the camera or calling a preset.
    • Also going into the IVA task in Configuration Manager for that camera will call the preset of that task and then it will also rest the counter.
