Can VMSes Allow Cameras To Be Used For Both Surveillance And Video Analytics?

It would seem feasible to me that a single camera could be used for both general surveillence and video analytics purposes. Are VMS vendors offering anything along these lines?

A couple of possible examples:

1. A camera is set-up with analytics to detect abandoned objects, but also provides the 'normal' CCTV Video stream for live viewing and recording. (if camera is PTZ - perhaps analytics are suspended when the camera is under operator control)

2. A camera is scheduled to count people in its coverage area at 15 minute intervals (i.e. a snapshot), in addition to providing a 'normal' CCTV Video stream for live viewing and recording.

I appreciate there are a number of other factors to consider, such as camera location, lighting etc which may make it challenging to optimize a camera to peform both these roles?

Apologies if this is a 'novice' question for the IPVM forum.
