Setting up motion detection does take some trial and error to set the camera to detect the motion you want it to detect, so please do have patience when setting this up. We hope the following information is useful in explaining how the motion detection works and what the possible outcomes of motion detection are. 


To edit motion detection settings:

1. Open the CamHipro app.

2. Tap the settings cog on the camera you wish to edit.

3. Tap the setting 'Alarm management and notification'.


The app has the option to edit the motion detected:

1. What: Detect motion (the number of pixels that move from one frame to the next).

 How: In 'Alarm management and notification', toggle 'Motion detection alarm' to on. 


2. What: Detect human movement.

How: In 'Alarm management and notification', toggle 'Humanoid alarm' to on. 


3. What: Edit the sensitivity required to detect motion (more pixels required to move between one frame and the next).

How: In 'Alarm management and notification', tap 'Adjust motion detection' and slide the sensitivity between 1-100. A higher sensitivity closer to 100 will require less pixel movement to trigger the alarm and a lower sensitivity closer to 1 will require more pixel movement to trigger the alarm. 

**When using the cameras for security, in order to detect vehicles and people, a sensitivity of ~10 is required for the majority of our customers** 


4. What: Edit the area in which motion is detected.

How: In 'Alarm management and notification', tap 'Adjust motion detection' and adjust the blue box area. Motion will only be detected within the blue box. 


5. What: Detect motion only if motion and human movement is detected.  

How: In 'Alarm management and notification', tap 'Alarm trigger' and select if you wish both human movement and motion detection to trigger the alert or only one of these to detect motion. (If selecting 'alone trigger', either motion detection or human movement will detect motion if both of these are toggled to on). 


6. What: Set motion detection to only activate at certain times of the day.

How: In 'Alarm management and notification', tap 'Advanced setting' to manually customise the time you wish motion detection to be activated. 


Once motion is detected, it is possible to do the following:

1. What: Receive a push notification to your mobile device.

How: In 'Alarm management and notification', toggle 'Receive alarm push' to on. 


2. What: Camera will emit a sound (external speaker required for 360 and Static. Static has an inbuilt speaker but this has a      very close range).

How: In 'Alarm management and notification', toggle 'When the alarm is triggered, the device issues a siren' to on. 


3. What: Record to an SD card (SD card required).

How: In 'Alarm management and notification', toggle 'Alarm recording to SD card' to on.
