How to Set Up a Motion Grid

Customize and set up a motion grid. This determines what areas of the camera image will be triggered to motion detection.

Left click and drag to determine the specific areas that WILL NOT trigger motion detection. Any area covered by the grid is active

 Remember to Click the SAVE ICON to save your settings.

In this second image we can see that the window is not covered by the grid. Any motion detected in that area of the image will not trigger motion detection recording. If someone were to enter through the door however, the motion sensor would trigger and the camera would start recording footage to the DVR.

1. Sensitivity Slider: Determines how much movement in the camera’s image will trigger motion detection. A higher sensitivity value will require more significant movement to trigger motion detection. 

A sensitivity of 1 will be the most sensitive and require the least amount of movement to trigger motion detection.

2. Select All: The entire screen is sensitive to motion detection

3. Select None: Removes the Grid. None of the screen is sensitive to motion detection

4. Test Sensitivity: Click and drag across the screen to simulate movement and ensure your sensitivity settings will pick movement.

5. Save Settings: Select to save any changes to your sensitivity or motion grid settings.

6. Close Menu: Closes the Sensitivity Menu. Right click on the mouse to restore the menu.
