Do You Really Ever Use Event Detection Features Like Line Crossing, Intrusion Detection, Etc?

Asking for a friend..

Regarding event detection on a typical camera install:

With advanced detection features such as Line Crossing, Intrusion Detection, Face Detection becoming norm, do you really ever use these features on a frequent basis? The key word being frequent.

Or, do you just still use good ol fashioned motion detection in which you block out areas of the image in which you dont want motion to occur and adjust sensitivity as needed?
