Unfortunately, I cannot get access to that cam. I only get this
Maybe, you can give me the address before that. It seems to need login/pwd also.
"I need to start recoding every single movement even if it’s a fly crossing!. That is usually the problem. The system is to sensitive and records everything.
There are 2 parameters that you can play with. The Threshold and the Sensibility. The Threshold is about the size of the object that you want to detect. The Threshold level must be lower that the size of the object to be detected. When you change the Threshold level the line in the bar graph do not move, but the filling of the space will increase and be more “nervous”. The other parameter is the Sensibility which have to do with the movement of the object. If the object moves very slowly you need the Sensibility to be high. This will also allow rapid moving objects to be detected. Usually, you do not want insects to be detected so you lower the sensibility to not detect rapid moving objects.
For the motion detection system to start a recording both these parameters must be fulfilled. When the camera is connected to NCS it will be some work to get these parameters correct. Depending on the object it can be less or more difficult.
“For me the motion detection is a way to reduce the space of the recordings but not to limit the recordings only for “importat” movements.” I agree that motion detection is a way to reduce space, but it is mainly to catch what is going on. So to catch something you must always configure the system for that you want to have on video. Alternative, is to use continuously recording …
The camera you try against is an Axis camera that is of very good quality. The DCS cams are well priced, but you should think about the resolution that you need and also how sensitive it will be for noise in electronics and if you need night vision.
I have the DCS-942 and it do not have an external output for the trigger.
If you can give me access to the cam I can see what I can do.
I got a short glimpse of that video source and for me it is a set of still images. I do not know where you are geographically located, but I cannot use that one. To do motion detection you need a source with a steady video stream.
