REST Server

CVEDIA-RT provides a REST server that allows interfacing with the system remotely.

It is divided in tree namespaces:

  • RT Core is the main API used to manage instances, input and output, and system-wide options.
  • Onvif is specific for discovering and accessing Onvif cameras information.
  • SecuRT exposes all the methods to define the analytics and the options of the SecuRT solution.

Enabling REST Server

The REST server is enabled by default when running the CVEDIA-RT Windows Service, RT Studio, or CVEDIA-RT on Linux (both as docker or as native).


Please, be aware that the CVEDIA-RT Plugin for VMS doesn't start the REST Server.


The Rest Server can be disabled and configured in the rtconfig.json system-wide configuration file.

The default port is 3546.
