Menu > Alarm > Video Detect > Motion Detect
Motion Detection can be configured to detect movement on specific camera channels. This can then create an event record file and perform various functions including sending an email, sounding the buzzer or triggering a relay output.
Due to enviromental factors it is advisable to pay particular attention to the region and senstivity settings for external cameras.
To enable motion detection select the Enable box.
To customise the detection area and senstivity click Set next to Region.
Use the left mouse button to add and remove areas of the grid. Click the region numbers to modify the indivdual regions.
Motion Detection sensitivity is controlled by two settings, Sensitivity and Threshold.
Sensitivity: The amount of movement required to register that movement is being detected
Threshold: How much movement is required before creating a motion event
Once the region has been configured click the right mouse button to return to the motion detection setup page.
