Once the motion recording or "Edge Motion" is set up, we can achieve the following benefits:
- saving disk usage space, as image analysis data will be stored only if a criteria is met, such as motion detected.
- maintain moderate CPU loading, as image analysis process is transferred to the cameras.
We must do the following:
- Set up motion detection in a camera.
- Make sure motion recording can be received by Mainconsole.
- Use the motion detection as an event to trigger the recording.
- Start recording.
Set up motion detection in a camera
Make sure the motion detection function is enabled on the camera and it is functional.

- Enter [Smart Guard Configuration]
- A window of [Event and Action Configuration] will pop up.
- Under [Insert Event], add a new alarm on the desired camera:
- Select "Edge Motion" under [Select Event] popup window:
- Check if motions are detected from the camera.
- Click [OK] to save all settings.
Use the motion detection as an event to trigger the recording
- Enter [Schedule Configuration].
- On the same camera, select [Record on Event] (blue bar) under [Configure].
- Click [Select Event].
- At this point, you should be able to see the [Edge Motion] option under [Video Analytics (Device)].
- Select [Edge Motion] and click [OK] to save everything.
