How To Setup Motion Detection on Using Web UI (NVR)
Motion detection is typically set by default while initially setting up your NVR, however, if motion detection is disabled configuring motion detection is a very simple process and can be done either locally or via the web user interface using a computer. For more information on how to setup motion detection locally click here.
Setting up Motion Detection Using Web UI
Please make sure you have direct access to the IP address for your device or your computer is on the same network as your NVR. For more information on how to access the web user interface (web UI) for your device, click here.
Step 1: Log into your NVR using your username and password.
Step 2: On the main menu, click on the Alarm function tile.
Step 2:In the Alarm menu, click on the Video Detection option and select which channel you would like to enable from the Channel menu, and click on the Enable checkbox.
Step 3: Region settings can be set for your device as well which can help to reduce the amount of false motion detection alerts that are caught by your camera by allowing you to set specific motion zones, adjusting the motion sensitivity and threshold for your device.
Select a motion zone (color) from the screen and use your mouse to highlight specific regions. Motion sensitivity and threshold can also be adjusted which can increase the efficiency of your motion detection. For more information on sensitivity and threshold settings, click here.
Step 4: If you want to set up a motion detection schedule for your device click on the Setting button located in the Period field. A motion detection schedule will set your camera to detect motion only at specified days and times. By default, motion detection will be set up to record motion 24/7, 7 days a week, however, the schedule can be modified.
The device can modify up to 6 periods. The periods can be copied to multiple days if necessary. Use your mouse to enter a start and end time for the motion detection schedule. In this example, we are using 6am (0600) - 5pm (1700), the schedules will be entered using military time. To copy the schedule to all days of the week, click the All button. Click Save.
A motion detection schedule has now been set on your device. For more information about additional motion detection options available on your system, click on the More Setting button.
