Applications are the central component of Isarsoft Perception, as this is where video streams are converted into metadata.

This post will guide you step by step through the whole process of creating the Application and explains how you can create a zone or line.

Application Overview

Click on the first column of the side bar on the left, the Application Overview opens. Then click on the blue button "CREATE APPLICATION" at the top right.

Application Type

In the following step are three different Types available but you have to choose the Object Flow variant. This Application Type is the only one which offers different Visualizations and it offers all "Model Variants".

Model Variant

There are different options you can use, the basic model for person recognition is the Person model. In comparison, the tiny version requires fewer computing resources and may be less precise, especially over longer distances. Which Variant works best for depends on your facility and the recording cameras.

Camera Selection

After you finished the last steps you can select the camera you want to create an Application for. The camera has to be created before creating an Application, read our Blogpost about the creation process to learn more.


Name the Application and create a new tag (press enter, after naming the tag to create it) or select a existing one. Tags are not necessary but are a central component to make it easier to find an Application. For example, different cameras can be placed at the entrances of a building to be provided with the common tag entrance .The overview can be filtered by the corresponding tag, so that only the cameras at the entrances are displayed.

How to create a Zone

To create a Zone hover over the blue round button with the plus in the right bottom corner of your camera view and click on Add Zone. Name the Zone and give it a Tag and press the blue ADD ZONE button. A grey square shaped box appears in the middle of your camera view. Grab the corners and move it to the position you want. You can add more corners by making a right click on the boundary box and also can delete and edit the Zone. Move the box as you need it by grabbing and pulling the corners.

How to create a line

To draw a Line hover over the blue round button with the plus in the right button corner of your camera view and click on Add Line. Name the Line and give it a Tag and press the blue ADD Line button. By doing the right click on the linen you can invert the directions, that means IN and OUT of your live counts is reverse but you can also delete and edit your line by doing the right click.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
