Turing Vision V1.12 Release Note
1. Upgrade a Bridge using the app or web.
Users will see a pop-up message if a new firmware release is available for one or more bridges. To find out which devices have updates, go to Settings > Devices.
To upgrade a device, simply click the button to upgrade. During the upgrade, the cameras will be offline and unavailable. Once the upgrade is complete, the devices will reboot and become available again.
2. Vehicle Entity
Registered and flagged vehicles can now be added to the “Vehicle” tab so that you can get alerts based on whether a vehicle is flagged or a vehicle is not registered. In order to get alerted, you must setup at least one alert rule with “Include any vehicles not registered in alert” or “include all flagged vehicles in alert” enabled, and set up the notification in Alerts & Notifications.
3. Flagged People, Contacts
Starting in this release, an admin or user can flag a face detected in an alert or an event in order to receive an alert when the flagged person is detected by a camera. An alert rule is set up by enabling “Includes all flagged people in alert”, and by setting the notification in Alerts & Notifications.
Select People > Flagged to see the flagged faces.
An admin or a user can create an organization-wide contact list. In an upcoming release, the user can share an event, alert, or archive with any user on the contact list without remembering their phone numbers or email addresses. Contacts can also be set up to receive alert notifications in an upcoming release.
4. Edit Detection Region
An admin or a user can create, edit and remove detection regions for a Turing Smart camera in Settings > Devices > Camera through the cloud. Up to four detection areas can be configured for each of the detection types. Detection regions of the camera may be drawn and adjusted on-screen.
5. Mobile - Search Vehicle Events
The Turing Vision mobile app can be used to view or search for vehicle detections. Filtering by camera, site, time range, license plate number, color, body type, and make are available. Vehicle color and type can be multi-selected to expand search scope. When viewing the vehicle event detail, the detected attributes are shown, with the option to view the full resolution event snapshot. A video clip of the event is displayed if the event is captured by a Turing Smart Camera.
6. Mobile Search People Events
An admin or a user can also view or search for events with people detections using the mobile appon mobile app. A user can search by detected faces, or filter by camera, site or time range. When viewing the detail of an event, a short video clip is displayed for Turing Smart Cameras. For third party camera, a snapshot is shown instead of a video.
7. AI Search -Non-motor vehicle
Non-motor vehicle detections such as bicycles or motorcycle events can now be viewed as a video clip and filtered on the Turing Vision platform on the “Motorcycle” tab. Note that this event type is only available on the web app, not on the mobile app.
8. Mobile - Archive and share an event or alert video
Events or alert videos can be archived on Turing Vision cloud. Turing Vision archives are stored on the cloud indefinitely.
To archive an event or alert video, simply click the ARCHIVE button when watching an event or alert clip and create a title. When the archive process is complete, you can view the video in the ARCHIVE tab.
When you open an archive video, you can view the video, edit its title and notes, share, download, or delete it. The archived video is saved in MP4 file format that is widely-supported by major mobile phones, laptops, and browsers. However, after the video format conversion, the AI details in an event/alert video (such as detected faces and license plates) are no longer present. The feature is supported by the Bridge versions 1.1.1 or higher.
9. Share archived videos from the app and web with configurable timeframes.
Once you archive a video, it can be shared with any email or phone number even if the person doesn’t have a Turing Vision user account. Users can specify the date when the share link will expire. Users can enter multiple recipients. TURING doesn’t limit the number of emails and phone numbers users can share.
10. Web and mobile - Distinguish between a Turing camera and a third-party one
Third-party cameras may have limited device settings and AI detections depending on their ONVIF support and various compatible scenarios. Unlike Turing cameras, third-party cameras may not support OTA firmware upgrades, detection region configurations, and people/vehicle attribute detections. To align the users' expectations, our interfaces make it easy to distinguish between a Turing camera and a third-party camera.
