LOL yes I thought you meant installing another camera, yes cloning would work. I'll try that. Thanks for the clarification. Actually that should work really well to separate the road traffic from the traffic entering my driveway regardless of deepstack. When cloning you can use the same stream from the camera and not increase the total bandwidth right?
Yes, cloning does not add any significant CPU load or bandwidth. Go into the main camera and check the clone master. Then copy that camera and make sure that the clone camera does not have clone master checked. The clone camera should then have an * next to it letting you know it is cloned.

Yeah that camera should work fine.

Just installed the 5.4.2.0 - Will wait for few alerts to see how the Playback is working if there is any issue like earlier with pre buffer size.

If I am monitoring my driveway for vehicles how can I do this when there are already vehicles parked in my driveway? Everytime I get an alert deepstack puts it through because AFAIK its detecting the vehicles that are already in the yard.
I have a car parked across the street. I zoned the whole image and when a car went by, it recorded 2 cars (like it should). I then unmasked the car and now when a car goes by, it only records the one car for motion and doesn't acknowledge the parked car. I'm on version 5.4.1.1

Update - Seems like Buffer issue is fixed.

Also As Per Update Notes from the Help file seems some really cool improvements.

5.4.2 - April 6, 2021
By popular demand, you may now delay recording or snapshots until alerted rather than
starting immediately upon a trigger. This allows the AI time to analyze the trigger before
recording begins.
With a new option on Settings/AI you may now select to save unknown faces to a specific
folder for later review or import.
At startup and after PTZ movement, DeepStack will now analyze the scene for initial objects
in order to prevent alerts on static objects.
The marked-up alert image is now re-saved to the database so that it will appear on the
alerts list.
With a right-click option in the Viewer, you may run a snapshot through DeepStack for
analysis. This will eventually be expanded to include BVR content.

This is cool, This way I now can tell what deepstack is looking at. Now it be nice to have some training at some point built in where if something is not detected we can do multiple passed and make deepstack get better and better :D

@Bosty Nice to know that masking out a vehicle works in deepstack but using just one camera I cannot mask my vehicles because the vehicles in my driveway are never parked in the same spot and when they are not there I don't want to mask that area. Using a cloned camera will work in my case as I can use different masking zones, just not sure deepstack will be reliable enough yet. That is what I'm testing.

You dont need to mask the vehicle. BI detects that the vehicle has not moved since the last analysis.

So there is no need to have zones anymore and just turn it off under motion?

So I turned off the mask and every alert now includes the parked car along with whatever object is in motion. So it is not ignoring static objects...

What setting is this to delay the recording?

I have the feeling we are in an early stage... on 5.4.0 I had the occupied-symbol on my test-scenario, on 5.4.1.. it "redected" always where it has been occupied before in the same situation. Maybe write him a bugreport or wait some days, I think that behaviour will be refined. It is a heck of new stuff which is implemented the last days. There will be some quirks at the moment.

OK. I'll plead advanced age, being "set in my ways" and some dumbness. What is the big trick to getting the UI control panel for DeepStack to run in Win10? I downloaded the UI .zip and unzipped it. I read the entries on their forum about it, and everything seems geared to using it in a Linux docker. I don't want to learn Linux or run docker containers. So I guess it's actually two questions - 1-Dooes the UI require Linux and therefor a docker in Win10 and 2-What's the magic to make the UI work in Win10 if it doesn't require Linux in a docker?

No you download deepstack for cpu or gpu from the link in the BI help file. You just install it and BI will configure it in the global settings and then you enable it in each camera that you want it on.

I just downloaded the CPU version here and installed it and then opened BI and it worked. I did not open or try to run Deepstack, just let BI do it. I am not running dockers or Linux.

I have DeepStack running with no problem and have used PowerShell to start it as well as letting BI start it. There is a GUI for DeepStack, itself, that I'm trying to get running.

What kind of camera are you using here that 8MP the image looks super clear? Is it a PTZ as well I see the writing in the left corner.

I am seeing the same behavior on 5.4.2. Parked cars are being included, not ignoring static objects.

That is correct.

Just copy/export the existing camera, add a new camera, import the copied one and change the camera name and short name before you save it. Then modify the settings from there.

I'm still seeing some time discrepancies with 5.4.2.0. I was just scanning clips in UI3. The clip animation starts at the time of the actual clip being moused over then jumps back to the previous clip. Not a real big deal, but still a little weird.

Nobody has an answer on the DeepStack UI question?

I may be wrong but last I saw the UI version for windows needed an activation key, and deepstacks login page wasn't work (last I checked).

The link here: has a windows exe that will install deepstack, then it's as simple as opening a command line and passing something like:

Code:
deepstack --VISION-DETECTION=True --PORT=80
EDIT: I saw your other message, realized you have the commandline version running but want GUI. Sorry about missing that part of it.
