Camera Motion Detection parameters setting

Article sections

    If you are away from home for a period of time,  you can set the camera to alert you at any movements that it detects, the motion sensor sensitivity can be customized to prevent false alarms such as plants or drapes moving in a draft.

    Motion Detection Parameters


     

    Before you get started operating the motion detection settings. Please learn more about camera motion detection associated parameters.

    [ Threshold ] Determines at what point the alarm is triggered. A lower threshold means less motion is needed to trigger the alarm. A higher threshold means more motion is needed to trigger the alarm.

    [ Sensitivity ] Determines how easily the camera detects motion. Lower sensitivity means the camera is less likely to detect motion. Higher sensitivity means the camera is more likely to detect motion.

    Want to know the detailed description of difference between Threshold and Sensitivity? Please see the Motion detection tutorial

    [ Minimum Length of Motion ] Determines if the motion is effective, if the duration of the motion is less than the “Minimum Length of Motion” setting, the motion will be determined to be invalid. This function is very useful, can let the camera ignore some invalid actions, such as an insect fly rapidly across the camera.
    NOTE: This parameter could not be found in 2.0.9 version of Anyscene and Babelens app or lower version.

    e.g.  If the value of  “Minimum Length of Motion” is 1 seconds,  and if the duration of the motion is less than 1 seconds, the motion will be determined to be invalid, it will not trigger the alarm. if the duration of the motion is more than 1 seconds, it will be determined effective motion, and it will trigger the alarm.

    Please NOTE:

    • the default factory setting of the ” Minimum Length of Motion ” is 1 second, if you find that it will let you miss some action you can set this parameter to 0.
    • To reduce the chance of false alarms you would increase the threshold or decrease sensitivity.

     

    Configure Motion Detection Parameters with your Smart Device(iphone, ipad, or Android phone, tablet)


     

    The motion detection sensitivity can be customized to prevent false alarms.

     

    Configure Motion Detection Parameters with your Windows PC or Mac


     

    Please log in to camera advance setting page to configure the parameters. If you don’t know how to access camera advance setting page please refer to How to access the web setting page

    In the camera web setting page, Click ” Task ” and then select ” Motion Detection“. The camera has 4 configurable windows, window 1 was enable by default by camera’s system when you get a new camera. You can adjust windows size, sensitivity and threshold for motion detection by yourself.


     

    Configure Motion Detection “Minimum Length of Motion” parameter via camera advance setting page

    Please log in to camera advance setting page to configure the parameters. If you don’t know how to access camera advance setting page please refer to How to access the web setting page

    In the camera web setting page, Click “Task” and then select “Global On/Off“. The default factory setting of the “Minimum Length of Motion” is 1 seconds, if you find that it will let you miss some action you can set this parameter to 0.
