Part 5 - How to Set a Motion Detection Mask
A 10 Part GeoVision Series from Camera Security Now -- Featuring Brian WoodIn this GeoVision Configuration video Woodio explains how to configure a GeoVision Motion Detection Mask to include or exclude areas of your picture from counting in your overall motion detection scheme. A motion detection mask is an integral part of your GeoVision Security Camera System and comes standard with each pre-built Dell based GeoVision DVR and each genuine GeoVision DVR card sold through Camera Security Now.
A motion detection mask can help guarantee you see the video that is most important to your application and it can help reduce the number of saved video clips resulting from motion in parts of the picture that are of no interest to you.
Motion masks are commonly used to cover doors, entry and exit points, and valuable equipment whose position is relatively fixed. By using a motion mask in this manner you can be sure to receive notification when motion occurs in the areas that are most important to you. For example, an employee moves a bulldozer whose parking space is covered with a motion mask. The foreman receives a page or an e-mail notifying him there has been movement on the bulldozer. Should the move of the bulldozer be authorized the foreman needs not be concerned. However if the bulldozer is being used without his permission he can act immediately to address the situation.
Having a GeoVision DVR allows you to set motion detection sensitivity levels for each CCTV security camera in the system. Motion masks and notification options are also set on a per camera basis. When combined with the GeoVision scheduling software to set time frames for recording and notification your CCTV security camera system can provide both invaluable security and management control information. Keep in mind should the need arise you can adjust any of the motion mask setting as often as needed and these adjustments can even be done remotely over the internet should you be out of town or otherwise removed from the physical system.
When choosing a Security Camera vendor for your security needs remember that Camera Security Now offers an unprecedented level of pre and post sale support.
