Adding and Mapping Regions of Interest

Last Modified: August 30, 2021

Define the section of a camera image that you want to monitor for thermal data.

Complete the following steps to define a Region of Interest (ROI) to monitor using your thermal imaging camera and device.

  1. Click the Configuration pull-down and select Devices.
  2. In the list of devices on the Devices tab, double-click the device connected to the camera for which you want to define a ROI.
  3. On the Cameras tab, select the camera that monitors the equipment for thermal data and click Manage ROIs.
  4. In the [Camera Name] ROIs dialog box, click Add.
  5. In the New ROI dialog box, select the piece of equipment the camera is monitoring.
  6. In the box at the bottom of the New ROI dialog box, enter a descriptive name for the ROI and click OK.
  7. In the ROIs dialog box, click the Capture Image button.

    If you added your camera as an offline device, but captured an image that you took from the device prior to connecting it to InsightCM, you may upload it as a JSON file and identify ROIs using the uploaded image.

  8. Use the Rectangle ROI or Polygon ROI button to draw an ROI on the captured image.

    You can use the arrow buttons along the side of the image to nudge the ROI if the position of the camera shifts.

  9. Without capturing a new image each time, repeat steps 2-7 until you have added all your ROIs.
  10. Click Close when you are finished adding ROIs.
