Supported Mobotix Analytics in Arcules
Mobotix Thermal Radiometry
Detect thermal radiation from an object or body to measure relative surface temperature and sends an alarm if an object or body hits the target alarm threshold. The alarm is used by Arcules to record video and alert security staff.
In addition, visualization of real-time thermal alarm status is available from the Views page within Arcules.

Monitor Thermal Alarms
You can monitor real-time thermal alarms from the Views page by adding the Thermal Analytic graph to any View.
Note: It's important that the users or groups who are monitoring thermal alarms have the Continuous Live Viewing role assigned. This role disables the auto-logout function, so that users with this role can stay logged in without getting timed-out.
Go to the Views page and click the plus icon +.
On the next screen, enter a name for the View and click NEXT.
Select the thermal cameras for the View, then click the ANALYTICS tab to select the desired analytics you want to display in your view, and click DONE.
You can rearrange the widgets as you wish by clicking the more icon in the upper right hand corner & selecting Rearrange.
