5.2.2 Motion Threshold
Options can be ignored
The simplest way to obtain a report of motion in the video is to click Search after clicking
Fetch; see procedure 50 in 5.2, above. Use of Motion Threshold or Masking that Detects
Motion, explained in this section and 5.2.3, are optional. If this is your first read-through
of these options, please skip to p. 5–7 for 5.3: Search Report, and come back to find out
about the search options later. See figure 41.
Sensitivity. Threshold for reporting movement. Moving the slider right of center picks up
smaller movements. Setting the slider to the far left turns off motion search. Slider range
of magnitudes: 1 to 100.
Interval. Minimum amount of time, in seconds, between reports. Two or more
occurrences of movement within the interval are reported as a single item in the motion
search report. Adjust the interval as needed. Range: 1’’ to 9999’’ (or 2h:46’:39’’).

5.2.3 Masking that Detects Motion
You can focus View to search for motion only on areas of the video that you mask.
Show / Hide masking grid. Toggle for the presence/absence of a grid overlay on
the video image, to help select the area(s) used to search for motion.
Show / Hide mask and Enable/ Disable mask edit. Toggle, to search for motion
using either a partial area (mask) or the full area of a video image. When enabled, only
the areas that you have masked are searched for motion. See figure 42. Procedure !52,
below, explains how to focus motion search on part of a video feed. The mask(s) can
also be shown during the playback of video, in a Motion Search session. To save a
mask, see 5.7.1, Repeating a Motion Search, on p.5–16.
