Configuring Motion Detection
The program can be configured to alert users when
detecting motions in video streams recieved from
one or more cameras. The user is able to define an
area in a live video where motions in this area will
trigger the program and send out alerts.
An example of this can be to have a camera pointing
to the doorway where no one comes through during the day. You can then define an area with the
door included. This tells the program that any moving object shows up in this area (a person walking in
through the doorway) is considered abnormal and an
alert should be sent to user for further action.
