    No motion detection recorded only 24/7

    You'd have to login to the individual camera interface and set it there. You should ask your installer for a brief tutorial session to get a baseline understanding of the various settings on the camera (not the NVR) then we'll be better able to help you. Frankly if he left it like that, well...

    Unlikely you'll pic up much of anything at night in the top photo, MD needs light Bottom one isnt a lot better. At minimum I'd aim it to get rid of as much wall as possible What model cameras are those? You really dont have enough light to run those in color at night. I'd look at running IR in B&W

    Each scene is different. Show us a pic I try to outline areas that wont be affected by swaying tree limbs, plants or shadows as best I can, and typically use 80-90 and 10-20 threshold.. But for the most part I only use it at night as daytime gives too many false alerts. For example the one...

    That’s why I suspected WDR or SSA but he shows backlight off… He's got a tough lighting scene.. Here's an example 5442 turret of mine that sits under a dark carport and is a real challenge when sunny (we're overcast today) that I use SSA on because without it .... well see for yourself With...

    Agree. Not bad at all really. If greater detail is needed though you may need to go up to a 4K cam

    Light + Shutter Faster DNR Less These are the keys. Light makes everything else childs play. It's always ALL about light. Every camera Every scene Everywhere

    Once you get that sorted we need to introduce you to AI/IVS. Much better far fewer false alerts. It targets only humans and/or vehicles, so shadows, leaves, squirrels and most cats* will be ignored. * cats seem to have some supernatural aura that can occasionally set off IVS. My experience is...

    ^^^^ This and same goes for shutter. Faster is better until image becomes too dark/noisy Those two things effect how we can freeze and image as crisply as possible. They both produce too much noise as you lower the number at some point. Fine line, so start low as @wittag suggests and increase...

    DNR probably the key.

    No motion detection recorded only 24/7

    You want to record both motion and full time recording ideally. The NVR is showing your motion grid, so if it’s not showing motion marks on the timeline, either the grid isn’t right for where you want to detect, the sensitivity is too low, (I run 90) or the notification settings in your app are...

    Yep except his NVR is showing them.... lets see if its recording them and if so its an App/notification issue. I've just chased my tail so many times to find the user "forgot to mention" some little detail in Step#1 after we're on Step#42 that I try and start from the beginning now ;) Thats...

    Small world. I climbed telephone poles for ATT in 1978-1980 out of Paola/Ottawa. FLAT! On a clear day atop of a pole, you could see your own ass if you squinted hard

    No motion detection recorded only 24/7

    Based on your description we can be pretty sure that something you changed on the App is what broke things. For future reference some rules to live by: #1- DONT make setting changes on the APP. Its best used as a viewer and playback device as well as to receive remote alerts. Its not great for...

    No motion detection recorded only 24/7

    Ok so first blush the NVR settings look fine, so lets make sure the NVR is actually recording the motion. If it is, the problem is most likely with something in your notification settings via your app (Normally I would next go to the camera to see settings, but assuming you havent touched the...

    Might try reducing DNR to about 35 and see how it does also, may be the source of that red streak... that or backlighting

    Old BNC analog to new Cameras in 2024

    Each scene/camera location is different so while the std 5442 VF is a solid choice, there may well be places where a fixed 3.6mm, 4K model or 5442-Z4 might be even better, but without analyzing each scene yeah. (generally fixed lens cams are better at picking up light) I have 8 cameras around...

    Are you running any backlight setting? It kinda looks like WDR or SSA is on? I think your troubles , say vs a front of a house, is that the light is straight up 20ft in the air. You dont get as much light on faces as you would with say a porch light at just above head level. Also FWIW in that...

    LOL I actually INSTALLED some RG 59 to be able to test them! Easy attic runs of 30ft but I used a full 100ft roll of RG59 for each and left it up there

    I converted two of mine years ago just for testing the gadgets and while I've since sold the house, they are still working just fine running two 5442 4MP turrets
