Intelligent Insights support controlling Bosch IP cameras by Common Gateway Interface (CGI) commands over HTTP or HTTPS when a threshold of the area fill level, area fill level traffic light or occupancy use case is reached.
Follow the step-by-step guide below and find how you can to setup the threshold actions in Intelligent Insights.
Controlling Bosch IP devices by threshold actions:
Bosch IP video products can be controlled and managed using an enhanced version of Remote Control Protocol. This protocol defines commands and messages that allow to control the device, such as controlling a relay or moving the camera to a preposition.
The command structure of RCP+ must be translated into parameters and values handed over to the unit’s XML-based CGI interpreter as a query string.
Using HTTP as transportation protocol, for example with a web browser, an URL may look like:
Example where 10.120.22.214 is the IP address of a selected camera:

External signaling units can be connected to the Bosch camera relay, for example, to start a voice message or turn on lights.
Controlling 3rd party devices by threshold actions:
Next to controlling Bosch IP Camera devices it is also possible to send RESTFUL API Get calls to 3rd party devices.
In the version 1.0 of Intelligent Insights only RESTFUL GET commands are supported.
If the 3rd party device allows to control the device by GET commands, this functionality allows to control 3rd party devices.
Restful API calls can be send to devices that support
Only restful API GET commands are supported in Version 1.0
