Configuration of Intellect™ system objects generally includes the following stages:

  1. Select an object

    Select an object as follows:

    1. open the Hardware tab containing objects tree;
    2. select an object in the objects tree.
  2. Create an object

    Create an object as follows:
    1. open the Hardware tab containing objects tree;
    2. select a parent object in the objects tree, which should be used as a basis for the creation of a child object;
    3. display the context menu by clicking the right mouse button and select Create object;
    4. select the type of a new object using the corresponding second level menu;

      As a result of the above operations, the object settings panel will display an identification panel for the new object.
    5. specify a unique identification number in the Number field (1) and the name of a new object, Microphone in the example on the figures, in the field Name (2).


      Entering of > and < symbols is forbidden in the Name filed. They will be removed when settings applying if these symbols are used in the object name.

      If the identifier or the name are not unique, the corresponding message is displayed on the panel while the field is highlighted in red.

    6. click the Apply button to complete the object creation process;
    7. As a result, a new child object will be created based on the selected parent system object.


      If the parent system object has one or more child objects, then you can expand the list of child objects using the icon, and collapse the list using the icon.

  3. Editing

    Editing means any modification of the object settings, i.e., changes in the object parameter values. The tools panel of the system object is the key configuration instrument of the object setup.
    Edit an object as follows:
    1. select a system object the parameters of which are to be modified (1);
    2. modify the object parameters using the tools panel of the object (2);


      The object ID cannot be edited.

      The object name can be changed, however, if an object with the same name already exists, the corresponding message is displayed when applying the settings:

    3. click the Apply button to save all changes (3).
  4. Deleting

    Delete an object or a folder as follows:
    1. select an object or a folder to be deleted (1) and rightclick to display the context menu on the monitor (2);
    2. select the Delete object item in the menu;


      It is possible to select the object to be deleted and use Ctrl+Del instead of calling the context menu and selecting the corresponding item.

      Now a dialog box requesting confirmation of the object deletion will appear on the monitor.

    3. Click the OK button.

      Figure below shows the result of an object deletion (objects tree contents after the object has been deleted).  The object, in the example on figures the object is Microphone, which has been deleted is no longer displayed in the objects tree.
  5. Changing the parent object

    When changing the parent object you can move created object in the objects tree of INTELLECT™ without losing settings.
    Change the parent object as follows:
    1. Select the system object the position of which is to be changed in the objects tree.
    2. Select a new parent object in the drop-down list on the settings panel of the object. The name of the drop-down list  is the same as the type of the parent object.


       If the object is moved to another computer, INTELLECT™ is to be restarted on both computers – on one the object is moved to and on another the object is moved  from. 

      As a result the object is displayed in the objects tree of the selected parent object.

  6. Copying objects

    The copy function enables cloning objects created in Intellect object tree (see also The Save function).


    The copy function is guaranteed for the Video capture device object and its child objects: Camera, Sensor, Relay, Embedded detection tool, Face detection tool, Detection zone, Tracker, VMDA detection tool and Captioner. For other objects this function is not guaranteed.

    Copy objects as follows:

    1. Select the object to be copied in the object tree.
    2. To copy the object press Ctrl+C.
    3. Select the parent object under which the copy of the selected object is to be created or one of the objects created under the parent object.
      If the copy is to be created under the same parent object as the source object, then this step can be skipped.
    1. Paste the object using one of the following key combinations:
      1. Ctrl+V – paste only the copied object.
      2. Ctrl+Shift+V – paste the copied object with all child objects.
    1. The object or objects will be created with the default names and a vacant IDs will be assigned to them. Parameters of created objects will be the same as those of corresponding source objects.


      Once copied object can be pasted multiple times.
