Augmented Reality requires the integration of the virtual environment and reality environment, allowing users to simultaneously access virtual information based on real environment. Using augmented reality by adding layers of virtual information on top of a video stream is extremely important and has various uses. One could have a video of a real-time stream from cameras covering large zones like hazardous materials plant warehouse, forest or border fence. It is very challenging to be able to monitor that stream from the full area, and act on time upon events. A way to monitor such an area is by covering it with N cameras to have a full video stream and M sensors, for different zone indications, such as Temperature, Humidity, Motion etc. The problems/concerns in such a solution are many, for instance: a. Each sensor has its own capabilities and protocol (Network card, GPS etc.), thus adding a new sensor may require system adaption. b. Some sensors might not have any internet connection or GPS capabilities at all. c. How all cameras and sensors can be connected to one single shared context. d. How a new sensor can be added to the system. Our invention solves the problem by providing a system that can monitor N cameras with M sensors and creates unified augmented reality video stream display using capabilities of SIP protocol. In addition, it gives an easy and pluggable way to add new sensors to an existing area or adding a new zone. The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is an IETF standard of a signaling protocol used for the establishment, control and route of IP media sessions, with one or more participants, over internet connection and for carrying metadata. It is widely supported on the telecommunication industry and in over-the-top solutions for communications. One typical use of SIP is with video conferencing control which our invention enhances for creating one shared context for the whole system. For example: Hazardous materials plant has large warehouse area, which is sensitive to temperature and humidity since major changes of those indications may result in a damage to the materials or even worse, cause explosions. Our idea enhances SIP protocol capabilities, cameras and pluggable light IOT devices to create a unified augmented reality video stream. The added information layers can be helpful and sometimes even critical for making decisions - for example: a. Border fence

b. Resource allocation for putting out fires c. Plant for hazardous materials The unified augmented reality video stream can be reviewed manually or automatically by analytics systems. The cameras and IOT devices (sensors) can be plugged easily to the system...
