NOTE: When the message “HDD not found” shows up, refer to appendix # 1. It may result from an improper
installation of the HDD.
7. Advanced Functions
“Advanced Motion Detection Setting” allows you to adjust different sensitivity factors based on a different
environment. “Quick Event Search” allows you to examine the setting of motion detection factors. In this way, you
can use specific motion detection setting to capture every important image.
a. Motion Detection Setting
1. LS: The sensitivity of comparing two different images. The smaller the value, the more sensitive the detection will
become.
Application ~
* Environment vibration
* Light shift
* Shadow
* Mirror reflection
2. SS: The sensitivity towards the size of the triggered object on the screen. The smaller the value, the more
sensitive the detection will become.
Application ~
* Different size of the object on the screen.
3. TS: The sensitivity towards how long the object gets triggered. The smaller the value, the more sensitive the
detection will become.
Application ~
* Different speed of the moving object
4. RE: The value of RE is a reference for detection. The default value is 10, which means the DVR will compare 10
continuous images at one time according to the sensitivity of LS, SS, TS simultaneously. Therefore, the bigger the
value, the more sensitive the detection will become.
Application ~
* Slow and regular environment change
Scenario: Warehouse
Different environments may require different settings. The sample below is for reference only.

™ Note 1: The real appropriate setting value will depend on the real situation (such as the angle of the lens, the
distance between the camera and object etc…)
™ Note 2: Refer to “9.g. Advance Menu_Detection” for detail setting.
b. Network Backup
You can easily use the licensed software AP to backup the recorded files to PC and playback the backup videos. For
detailed operation, refer to “10.f. Licensed Software AP”.
8. Operation
a. Recording
The DVR offers three recording modes: manual record, event recording, and timer record. If power is off accidentally,
recorded video files will still be stored in the HDDs. The DVR will return to the original recording status after the
power has been restored.
1. MANUAL RECORDING (continuous recording): Recording is initiated by manually pressing the “REC” button,
indicated by “●”.
2. EVENT RECORDING (triggered by motion or external alarm): When this function is activated, the recording is
triggered by motion or external alarm and indicated by “ ” and “ ”.
3. TIMER RECORDING (scheduled time): Recording is scheduled by the timer and is indicated by “TIMER
RECORD”.
NOTE: When the HDDs are full under O/W recording
mode, previous recorded files may be overwritten without
further warning notices.

The sensitivity of comparing two different images. The smaller the value, the higher sensitivity for motion
detection.
The highest sensitivity setting is 00, the lowest sensitivity setting is 15. The default value is 07.
5. SS:
The sensitivity towards the size of the triggered object on the screen (the number of motion detection grids). The
smaller the value, the higher the sensitivity for motion detection. The highest sensitivity setting is 00 and the
lowest sensitivity setting is 15. The default setting is 03.
NOTE: The default setting of Spatial Sensitivity is 03. This means that, when 3 grids are detected for motion at one
time, the system will get triggered. The value of Spatial Sensitivity must be less than the number of grids
which you set up to motion detection area.
6. TS:
The sensitivity towards how long the object gets triggered. The smaller the value, the higher sensitivity for motion
detection. The highest sensitivity setting is 00 while the lowest sensitivity setting is 15. The default setting is 02.
7. RE:
The value of RE is a reference for detection. The default value is 10, which means the DVR will compare 10
