Onboard Camera AI ‚Äč

Some camera hardware provides onboard AI that detects people, animals, and vehicles. Those detections can be used by Scrypted NVR to reduce server load. There are a few caveats:

  • The camera provided detections do not provide bounding boxes around the object. As a result, notifications and thumbnails will be full frame images, unlike the rich notifications provided by Scrypted NVR Object Detection.
  • Enabling the camera's AI features may disable some substreams. This would reduce the available streams from 3 to 2, resulting in degraded timelapse and streaming performance.

With those limitations in mind, the Onboard Camera AI can be utilized by disabling the Scrypted NVR Object Detection extension on the camera.
