time. During the alarm process, the alarm signal can begin an anti-dither time if system detects the
local alarm again. The screen prompt, alarm upload, email and etc will not be activated. For example,
if you set the anti-dither time as 10 second, you can see the each activation may last 10s if the local
alarm is activated. During the process, if system detects another local alarm signal at the fifth
