Thanks for the reply.
When I purchased Netcam, I purchased the 16 camera licence, although, I currently only have 3 camera connected. I knew I would probably grow to somewhere between 6-10 cameras over time.
The link you provided is one that I looked at while doing some research. I’m pretty much trying to get to the same result that 3fingersalute was trying to get to in their opening post. “But isn’t it possible to have it simply record until the motion stops instead of just a set amount of time?” I had someone cut a chain that I had on a gate a few days ago. The recording that was created was 11 seconds long (at this time, I had the Trig Duration set to 10). From viewing the footage, I could tell that he was still in motion while the recording stopped. This is what made me want to revisit the settings.
To make sure that I’m understanding the pre-trig-buffer correctly…Let’s say motion is detected & continues for 5 seconds, the recording would be 7 seconds (5 seconds of motion + 2 seconds prior to motion). Is this correct? Seems pretty straight forward.
When I adjusted the Trig Duration to 0, I would have alot of 1 sec recordings. Does the pre-trig-buffer not apply when Trig Duration is set to 0?
You mentioned that “Moving objects is not the same as motion is detected and triggered. Look at the bar graph. If objects are moving the color can be yellow, orange or red. When it’s red motion is above value settings and recording starts or continues.” I get this because Motion Sensitivity, Detection Zones (which I do have applied & is working well), & Threshold (which I’ve been playing around with & haven’t discovered the “perfect” setting for my environment) would have an impact on this. I am displaying the Signal Bar at the Top Center of each camera frame.
Yesterday, I went to the outside near backdoor with my laptop where I have a camera pointed & messed around with the sensitivity settings (Trig Duration still set to 0). With each of the sensitivity setting I would get the same results, 1 second recordings. This brings up another question for me, When adjusting Sensitivity in the software does it actually adjust the sensitivity in the camera’s settings?From what I looked at, it does not appear so. If that’s is the case, should I also adjust Motion Sensitivity in the individual camera settings?
