Features include:

  • Region Entry/Exit: It detects people, vehicles or other objects entering or exiting from a pre-defined virtual region, triggering an alarm which may also generate further actions.

Furthermore, it can detect and raise an alarm if an object is left in or removed from a pre-defined region.
