Configuring Motion Detection
The program can be configured to alert users when
detecting motions in video streams received 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.
