System Requirements

IREX was engineered in such a way that the user's machine does not consume much computational resources. Almost any up-to-date workstation or mobile device will do. However, prior to the start-up with IREX make sure that:

  • Your device has the latest version of a web browser installed, Google Chrome is the recommended one.
  • Internet connection rate exceeds the limit as low as 1 MB/s.

IREX apps are based on the PWA technology and are available on Android, iOS, Windows, MacOS, and other platforms. The app can be installed directly from the IREX web portal.

Sign-in to IREX

To sign in, navigate to the IREX sign-in screen. You can get the URL of the sign-in screen from your System Admin or from an email invitation.

We recommend bookmarking the IREX URL provided by your System Admin or through an email invitation so signing in to IREX is easy in the future.

Once the URL is known, enter it into the address bar in the browser window.

You are on the sign-in screen then.

Email Address or Username Sign-in

When enabled by your System Admin, you can sign in with the username or email address used to create your account.

Switch between the light/dark page themes in the settings.

If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it by selecting Forgot your password on the sign-in screen, or contact your System Admin for help resetting your password.

Secure Sign-in Basics

IT department is solely responsible for information security in general at your organization, secure sign-in routines included. However, statistics prove that most security incidents come from neglected basic rules, which we kindly remind you of.

  • Keep in mind guidelines on password complexity and strength
  • Do not share your password with anyone for any reason
  • Change your password upon indication of compromise
  • Do not write your password down or store it in an insecure manner
  • Avoid reusing a password
  • Avoid using the same password for multiple accounts
  • Do not use automatic logon functionality

The following are Guidelines for individuals responsible for provisioning and support of user accounts:

  • Enforce strong passwords
  • Require a change of initial or “first-time” passwords
  • Force expiration of initial or “first-time” passwords
  • Do not use Restricted data for initial or “first-time” passwords
  • Always verify a user’s identity before resetting a password
  • Never ask for a user’s password

Events

IREX video analytics modules are optimized for different applications in Smart Cities. Trained against millions of images obtained in the CCTV networks, our neural networks deliver production-level accuracy in recognition of:

  • Threats (e.g. handguns, persons on rail tracks, fire, etc.)
  • People (wanted suspects, criminals, missing persons, sex offenders)
  • Vehicles and traffic (jams, plate numbers, driving violations)

Incidents of these kinds as shown on the IREX screen contain basic event details, such as what, when, who, etc., and a shortcut to more information.

Events Workspace

Select the Events on the main menu to open the Events screen, on which recent events are shown as an array of cards representing each its own event.

Document image

Events Tags

When managing video analytics, IREX Admin assigns a tag to each and every configured event. For instance, a "Motion in region" event by ObjectTrack Pro in a region that in fact is a rail track can be tagged "Person on track"; the same "Motion in region" event by MotionTrack Pro in an inappropriate sector of public space - "Antisocial behavior", etc.

The complete list of event tags appears under User Events on the Events screen to make it easier for users to find what they want.

Distinguish between event and camera tags; the latter are under the Tags.

User's Layouts

What Is a Layout for?

Some cameras might require special attention from the user, while others are of no interest at all. If this is the case, then it would make sense to assign a bigger space on the screen to the cameras of interest thus helping the operator to focus on those. This is exactly what users' layouts are for. A layout belongs to the user who built it.

Build a Layout

To build a user's layout:

1. On the User menu > Layouts screen click the "+" in the bottom-right corner to open the layout scheme window.

Document image

2. Select a scheme in this window, enter its name and click the Create.

3. Click all the Add Camera, in turn, on the new screen that opens to assign a camera to each tile in the scheme by selecting it on the list of the available, and click the Save when done.

Apply a Layout

To apply a layout, click its icon on the User menu > Layouts screen.

With a user's layout applied, access is limited to program functionalities. You can only zoom the picture, view it in the media player, switch to the other camera, etc., so use it mostly to quickly have a look at what is going on within the visibility ranges of a pre-defined sub-set of cameras.

What the Gallery Is

The Gallery is a collection of videos saved by the user to safe storage on the server for quick access in the future and to ensure it from being lost or corrupt. Learn how to save a video to the Gallery.

Log Out of IREX

You can log out of IREX from the user menu (the bottom line).
