Define Detection Zone: Left click and drag to draw a detection zone. You may
define more than one zone on the screen by repeating the process.
Sensitivity: Modify the sensitivity setting with the slider. Sliding rightwards will
increase the sensitivity level, meaning the slightest movement will trigger the alarm;
in contrast, sliding leftwards will reduce the sensitivity for movement detection.
Note: Configuring an appropriate sensitivity level reduces the possibility of a false
alarm. For instance, you can lower the sensitivity level to avoid the alarm
being triggered by a swinging tree in the breeze.
Interval: Move the slider control to the right to increase time interval so that the alarm will only be
triggered when the movement lasts longer. Move to the left to reduce the time interval.
Stop When Found: Check the option to have the video stop where motion was detected. Uncheck to
have video continuously run to detect all events available. Results will show in a search result box.
Click on the listed event in the box to jump to the point in the video where motion was detected.

Define detection zone: Left click and drag to draw a detection zone. The search
tool will detect additional objects that appear in this zone.
Define object size: Click and drag to draw and define the size of a foreign object.
Sensitivity: Modify the sensitivity setting with the slider. Sliding rightwards will
increase the sensitivity level, while sliding leftwards decreases it.
Interval: Click and move the slider control to the right to increase time interval so
that the alarm will only be triggered when the object has been removed from the
area for longer. Move to the left to reduce the time interval.
Note: Setting up an appropriate Interval value will reduce the chance of false alarms. For example, you
- 36 -

can lower the Interval to avoid the alarm being triggered by a pedestrian.
2.3.3 Unusual Event-Missing Object
Missing Object: Detection of selected objects removed from the defined area on
the screen.
Define detection zone: Left click and drag to draw a detection zone. The search
tool will detect selected objects removed in this zone.
Sensitivity: Modify the sensitivity setting with the slider. Sliding rightwards will
increase the sensitivity level, while sliding leftwards decreases it.
Interval: Click and move the slider control to the right to increase time interval so
that the alarm will only be triggered when the movement lasts longer. Move to the
left to reduce the time interval.

the entire screen.
Note: The maximum number of rectangle detection zones is 10.
3.3.3 Encoded Options
This option sets up the quality of the recorded video. The “Original Video” window is the original stream from
the camera. The “Encoded Video” is preview of the recorded video corresponding with the encode settings
below.
For IP cameras
The Encode Video function will reduce frames or re-encode original streaming from IP cameras. To save Hard
Disk usage, adjust framer ate with original video format or re-encode to smaller file size by adjusting frame
rate, resolution and Quality/Bit rate.
Keep Original Video format:
Select this option to reduce frame rate only but not to re-encode video
streams to save Hard Disk usage.
Adjust MJPEG video frame rate: Move slider to left to reduce frame
rate.
Note: The maximum FPS will correspond to original video streams set up
on camera configuration.
Keep key-frame only: System will only record key frames of video
streaming.
Note: The key frame interval is controlled by each camera
manufacturer and cannot be adjusted.
Customized encoding: * not available under Lite License
The video stream will be decoded then re-encoded by configuration.
Click “Setup” button to adjust “Encoder Parameter”.
Note: Customized encoding function causes high CPU usage,
make sure the PC specification is enough (recommend Core 2
Quad or above)
For Analog cameras
The Encode Video function sets Frame Rate, Quality, and Resolution that you
want to record and provides an approximate recorded time period.
For IPS-G3 Series cards you may additionally choose from different video formats,
including Mpeg4 and H.264.
Note: Capture card devices “IPS series” are required.
