Setting up motion detection for your camera through the Amcrest View app will allow you to choose how your camera will react to and record motion. This is the best way to record events that are particularly of interest without needing to waste storage space by constantly recording. Please note, a microSD card must be inserted in your device to playback or store motion events. If using a microSD card, please ensure it is properly formatted to FAT32 before use. For more information on how to format a microSD card, please click here
You can have motion detection set up along with 24/7 recording. The motion recordings will overlap the regular recordings and classify each motion-triggered recording as a motion event for your convenience when searching.
There are a lot of customization options for motion detection that can be configured directly through the app. This gives you complete control over how to make motion detection work the way you want it to.
