How do I set up motion detection alerts and recording in my FLIR Secure camera?
Your FLIR Secure camera can be set to record when motion is detected. You will receive a push notification on your mobile device when your camera detects motion.
You can also set SmartZone using the FLIR Secure app. SmartZone allow you to enable motion detection in important areas such as entryways to your home or your driveway. You can disable motion detection in areas where there is constant motion, such as a busy street.
On the home screen, tap your camera to stream live video.
Tap the gear icon() to open the Settings menu.
- Tap the Detection tab.
- Tap to enable / disable motion detection recording and alerts.
- Tap to choose the motion sensor sensitivity from the pop-up list that appears. Low sensitivity means more motion is required to trigger an event. High sensitivity means less motion is required to trigger an event. Tap Motion Sensor Sensitivity again to close the pop-up list.
- Tap to configure SmartZone™. SmartZone™ lets you mark your camera's field of view with areas of interest, and notifies you when the camera detects motion in those areas.
A grid overlay opens over the live video. By default, the entire video area is enabled for motion detection. To configure SmartZone™:
- Tap inside the grid to configure. Activated areas will turn orange.
- Tap Clear to reset SmartZone™ to the default setting (motion activated everywhere).
