Motion Detection Settings

Motion Detection: this checkbox activates Motion Detection (if FTP Upload is active)

No Motion detection during moves: if the camera is a PTZ camera, motion detection will be disabled during camera moves

Start Detecting if the user is idle for XX minutes: If this is checked, the program will detect keyboard events. If the keyboard has not been used for the chosen interval, motion detection start.

XX seconds to wait before motion detection starts: this adds a delay before motion detection is started

Sensitivity: use this slider to set the sensitivity ( left = low )

Show Motion: check this to overlay the motion level as a magenta bar on the image
