How to set up motion recording using cameras or "Edge Motion"?

Purpose

Once the motion recording or "Edge Motion" is set up, we can achieve the following benefits:

  1. saving disk usage space, as image analysis data will be stored only if a criteria is met, such as motion detected.
  2. maintain moderate CPU loading, as image analysis process is transferred to the cameras.

 

Procedures

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.
