Setup Motion Detection using a browser on your PC or Mac. Up to four individual alarm windows can be configured to emphasize special areas in a camera scene that are of interest. The fine tuning of alarm windows is done by carefully adjusting the threshold and sensitivity of each individual alarm window.
Log in to the camera
Open the browser and access the camera by its IP address.
Task – Motion Detection
In the right hand side menu, go to Task, then click on Motion Detection.
Configure the alarm windows
Adjust the size of each motion zone by clicking and holding the lower right corner of the alarm window. Once the alarm window has the correct size, click on the light blue alarm window title bar to move it around.
Set up to four motion zones, each with their own size, threshold and sensitivity. Click on Apply Settings to save the new motion zones.
Motion Detection on Desktop
Every camera scene is different and will require subtle adjustments until the desired motion detection is reached.
Motion detection on desktop explains how to use a browser to set and configure the motion zones using the camera’s alarm windows.
