connection.
2. When changing the settings, they should always be made first in the camera and
then in the wireless router. This ensures that the camera is always accessible when
making changes.
4.4 Device Settings > Alarm
The camera will detect motion when there is a change in the picture. Check the
Enable box to enable motion detection. you can set up the sensitivity, schedule,

area
on this page.
Note:
Don’t use PTZ system and motion detection simultaneously.
4.4.1 Motion > Sensitivity
It means how sensitive the camera will be to the change of the environment. Drag
the slider to change the sensitivity value. The lower the number is, the more
sensitive the motion detection will be, and the more frequent motion will be
triggered.
Click the ​Setup​ button to enter the S

Tips:
1. The day is divided into four periods by default, you may change each period’s start
and end time to best match the changing lighting conditions in your location.
2. During the daytime, the light is good enough for the camera to capture the whole
scenario, the sensitivity is suggested to set the values between 5–10 which will give
good results.
3. During the night time, the motion detection is more sensitive, the value is suggested
to set to 25-30 or even higher which will significantly avoid some fault trigger​.
Note​:
The motion detection will be affected by the light and weather, it is suggested that
you should test your motion detection sensitivity both during the day and at night
to ensure your sensitivity setting is suitable for either lighting condition.
➢ False Triggers: ​Setting the motion detection at high sensitivity levels (4 or lower)
increases the frequency of false alarms. On the other hand, low sensitivity levels
(20 or higher) increase the risk that a significant motion event (such as an intruder)
will not trigger the motion detection to record.
➢ Check the Motion Detection settings both during the day and night​: In
low-light conditions (or when your cameras are using infrared night vision) the
Camera may be more or less sensitive to motion, depending on the
circumstances. The difference might be very dramatic!
➢ Weather: ​The weather conditions are going to affect your motion detection.
Dramatic weather phenomenon such as heavy rain, strong winds, lightning and so
on, may trigger the motion detection with surprising frequency. On the other hand,
things like fog, mist and other obscuring kinds of weather might mask or obscure
something moving to the point that the Camera fails to detect them.

How to minimize the amount of noise in your images
1. Try adjusting the Image Settings to fine-tune the brightness and contrast to
get a more stable image.
2. Limit the motion sensitive area to only the areas in view that a target could
be. In particular, large featureless areas in the camera’s view are the ones
most likely to give false triggers - turning off the motion sensitivity to any area
a target cannot move in front of will help reduce false triggers.
Note​: The motion detection feature will seem more sensitive at night, particularly
when using low-light or active infrared cameras. We recommend that you test
your motion detection sensitivity both during the day and at night to ensure your
sensitivity setting is suitable for either lighting condition.
4.4.2 Motion > Schedule
You can set up the time schedule when the camera will detect motion. The red
box means when motion is detected, it will trigger an alarm.
Alarm​:​ ​Camera is sensitive to motion and will trigger an alarm during this period.
None​: Camera is not sensitive to motion and will not trigger an alarm during this
period.
