    October 26th, 2021

    If motion detection is triggering too easily, follow the below steps to adjust the sensitivity and region of detection.

    Black GUI

    1. Go to Main Menu, then Alarm.
    2. On the left hand side select Video Detection. Select the Region Setting button.
       
    3. Adjust the Sensitivity and Threshold. There are multiple region settings if you wish to set different Sensitivity and Threshold settings for different parts of the image.
      Sensitivity determines how sensitive the camera is to motion. Threshold determines how much motion is required to trigger an event.
    4. Adjust the area of detection by clicking and dragging on the red squares. Red squares are where motion will be detected. Clear squares are where motion will not be detected. Right Click to exit, and select Apply.
