5.4.6 Audio
• Audio Receiving: If a microphone is connected to the camera, you can select ON to allow the camera to record the audio and transmit to your PC. This enables the camera to pick up sounds in the
background.
• Audio Playing: If a speaker is connected to the camera, you can select ON to allow the camera to play
the audio transmitted from your PC. This enables you to speak to the person(s) around the camera.
• Audio Volume: Allows you to adjust both the audio playing and recording volume of the camera.
Using the two-way audio function
Note that the two-way audio function is only active in the live view page using the web browser. To use
the two-way audio function:
1. Make sure a speaker is connected to the Audio Out port and a microphone is connected to the Audio
In port of the camera.
2. Enter System > Audio and enable both the Audio Receiving and Audio Playing functions. Then adjust
the audio volume to the desired level.
3. To access the two-way audio streams:
4. Make sure your computer is connected to a microphone and speaker. Enter the live view page of the
web-based utility.
5. Speak into the microphone and the person(s) around the camera should hear your voice.
6. When people around the camera are talking to you, you should hear them from the speaker that is
connected to the computer.
5.5 Event
When an event occurs, it triggers an alarm and the camera will take a pre-defined action, e.g., sending
a recorded video clip or JPEG files to a designated server. With this camera, an event can be triggered by
external alarm devices or the camera’s detection mechanism, including motion, blur, audio and Ethernet
detection.
23
NOTE:
1. When there is more than one recording to be carried out at the same time, the scheduled video recording takes top priority, followed by the recording triggered by an Ethernet disconnection and lastly the
recording triggered by other events.
2. Only one event will be handled at a time. If an event is already triggered, other event will be logged to
the system but no action will be taken.
5.5.1 Motion Detection
When the Motion Detection is enabled, the camera detects motion under a pre-specified condition within
a designated area. When motion is detected, the camera will generate an alarm and then take a specified
action.
Note that to use the motion detection function, the following two conditions must be met:
1. You must select MJPEG codec for one of the streams to enable the live view.
2. You must select H.264 or MPEG4 codec for one of the streams to process the motion detection.
Configuration
• Motion Sensitivity: Specify the sensitivity to moving objects before the camera triggers an alarm. The
higher the sensitivity, the slighter the movement is required to set off an alarm. You can alternatively
select User Define and enter a value from 1 to 100 in the Customized Threshold field. When the motion within a specified area exceeds the threshold, an alarm will be triggered.
Select OFF to disable the motion detection
Motion Area Setting
• Motion area setting: Click target squares displayed on the screen to define detection areas; once
configured, click Save Motion Area to save settings.
Action
Specify the action to be taken when an alarm is triggered upon motion detection:
• OFF: No action will be taken, but an alarm will be logged.
• FTP: Recorded video clips/JPEG files will be uploaded to the FTP server when alarm is triggered.
• SMTP: Notification email with the recorded JPEG files attached will be sent to the SMTP server.
• SD Card: Recorded video clips will be saved to the SD card when the alarm is triggered.
24
5.5.2 External Alarms
If external alarm devices, e.g., sensors and alarms, are connected to the camera’s alarm input/output, the
following settings must be made:
Configuration
• Setting: Enable the Alarm I/O that is connected with the respective external alarm device.
• Level: Set the (electricity) current as low or high to define the active state.
Action
Specify the action to be taken when external alarm is triggered:
• OFF: No action will be taken, but an alarm will be logged.
• FTP: Recorded video clips/JPEG files will be uploaded to the FTP server when alarm is triggered.
• SMTP: Notification email with the recorded JPEG files attached will be sent to the SMTP server.
• SD Card: Recorded video clips will be saved to the SD card when the alarm is triggered.
NOTE: To perform a video recording, you must select MJPEG codec for one of the streams.
5.5.3 Blur Detection
With the Blur Detection enabled, when the camera detects incidents that make video image blur, e.g.
redirection, blocking or defocusing, the camera will generate an alarm and then take a specified action.
NOTE: Note that to use the blur detection function, the following two conditions must be met:
1. You must select MJPEG codec for one of the streams to enable the live view.
2. You must select H.264 or MPEG4 codec for one of the streams to process the motion detection.
25
Configuration
• Blur Detection: Select Enable to enable Blur Detection; select Disable to disable this function.
• Sensitivity: You can alternatively customize the camera’s sensitivity to a blur. The camera will judge
whether it has been tampered based on the sensitivity threshold specified.
Action
• OFF: No action will be taken, but an alarm will be logged.
• FTP: Recorded video clips/JPEG files will be uploaded to the FTP server when alarm is triggered.
• SMTP: Notification email with the recorded JPEG files attached will be sent to the SMTP server.
• SD Card: Recorded video clips will be saved to the SD card when the alarm is triggered.
5.5.4 Audio Detection
With the Audio Detection enabled, when the camera detects any sound, the camera will generate an
alarm and then take a specified action.
Configuration
• Audio Sensitivity: Specify the camera’s sensitivity level to the audio signal. The higher the sensitivity,
the lower the volume is required to set off an alarm. When set to OFF, the audio detection is disabled.
Action
Specify the action to be taken when an alarm is triggered upon audio detection:
• OFF: No action will be taken, but an alarm will be logged.
• FTP: Recorded video clip will be uploaded to the FTP server when the alarm is triggered.
• SMTP: A notification email attached with the recorded video clip will be sent to the SMTP server.
• SD Card: Recorded video clip will be saved to the SD card when the alarm is triggered.
NOTE: To perform a video recording, you must select MJPEG codec for one of the streams.
5.5.5 Ethernet Detection
With Ethernet detection enabled, when the camera detects an Ethernet disconnection, the camera will
generate an alarm and then take a specified action.
