How to Use Smart Motion Detection (AI DVR)

Smart Motion Detection (SMD) uses an advanced algorithm to differentiate between human and motor vehicle shapes within a scene and send alarms only when a person or vehicle is detected. Please note, this option cannot be activated if face detection or other AI rules are disabled in the system. For more information on how to set up smart motion detection on your system, please refer to the information provided below. 

Step 1: Log into your device and access the main menu. On the main menu, click the AI function tile.


Step 2: In the Parameters section, select an applicable channel and click on SMD, and toggle the Enable toggle switch to the on position. 


Step 3: By default, both the Human and Motor Vehicle object filters will be enabled. To have the device only detect people, disable the motor vehicle checkbox. To have the device only detect a motor vehicle, disable the Human checkbox. Please note, both object filters can be enabled at the same time if needed. Click Apply to save the settings. 


Please note, to have an email sent to you once an SMD event has been detected, click the Send Email toggle switch. For more information on setting up email alerts, click here.

Viewing SMD Events

All SMD events retained by the system can be accessed via the SMD option located in the Smart Search menu.


To view an SMD event, enter a start and end date and time for the event you would like to view in the Smart Search interface and click Search. A list of SMD events will be displayed in the interface.
