How to Configure Video Motion Detection Area - Firmware 1.9.4 and above

Last Updated: Jan 25, 2018 09:23AM EST
We have made changes to the way you configure Motion Detection Area in our cameras. The Motion Detection Grid option has now been replaced with the option to draw Motion Detection Area(s) of interest with added flexibility. There are 8 Configurable polygonal regions.
The sensitivity option has also been replaced with an adjustable sensitivity bar, giving you much more control over the sensitivity level of your Motion Detection Area.
If you are upgrading from firmware 1.4.x to 1.9.4 and above, you will need to reconfigure your Video motion detection Area
