value is, the higher sensitivity for motion detection.
The highest sensitivity setting is 00, and the lowest sensitivity setting is 15. The default setting is 03.
Note: The default setting of SS is 03, which means once an object is detected more than 3 grids, the system
will get triggered. So the value of SS must be less than the number of grids that you set up for the
motion detection area.
6) TS (Time of Sensitivity)
“TS” is to set the sensitivity regarding how long one object stays in the detection area and triggers the recording. The
smaller the value is, the higher sensitivity for motion detection.
