HOW TO RECORD MOTION SCHEDULE CONFIGURATION GUIDE: Setting Up Schedule for Motion-Based Recording. Right click the main screen to bring up the option list and select “Menu” - you will be prompted to enter your password in order to advance.  Enter the default password  “admin12345” and then click the enter button, followed by clicking OK.  After clicking OK you will see the main system Menu.  Click the Record menu option.  **Please Note: you must have cameras installed on your NVR/DVR to continue** This will open the Record main menu.  By default the cameras will be set on continuous recording, as seen below by the blue-colored bars. To change the camera to motion recording you would need to click the Edit button on the right side of the menu. This will bring up the Edit sub-menu.  There is a drop-down list on the top that lets you select the individual day but in this walk-through I am going to assume that you want to change the camera to be set to motion 24/7.  Near the top of the menu on the right side you will see another drop-down list where it currently says “Continuous”, click the arrow to the right to expand the drop-down list. Now you will see a list of different recording options, select Motion from the list. Now you have set Monday to record based on motion.  To apply this setting to the rest of the week, click Copy button at the bottom of the sub-menu. When the Copy To memu opens it will show various checkboxes, on this screen check the box next to All - this will apply the motion settings for the other 6 days of the week.  After checking the box, click the OK button at the bottom to apply the changes. Now on the schedule screen all 7 bars will be green, indicating that the camera is set to record on motion 24/7.  To apply these settings to the rest of your cameras click the Copy button at the bottom of the page. This will open the Copy To sub-menu, your menu may vary in appearance from the one below but the steps to change the cameras are the same.  You will see checkboxes on the left - these are used to select all of the cameras in that group.  So in this example you would click the box next to Analog and IP Camera.  Click OK on the sub-menu, followed by clicking Apply on the Schedule menu to apply the settings and you have finished setting up the recording schedule and can now move onto the setting up the motion grid and pre/post record settings. MOTION GRID CONFIGURATION GUIDE: Setting Up Motion Grid for Motion-Based Recording. Back on the Main Menu, click on the Camera icon.     This will open the Camera Magagement Menu, on the left side bar click on the Motion button. Click the checkbox for “Enable Motion Detection” Next click on the Full Screen button to make the entire camera record motion.  Alternatively, you can also click the Clear button then, using the mouse, you can draw the motion grid where you want it.  This way allows you to avoid things in the view of the camera that are in constant motion, such as a fan or branch, that would otherwise trigger motion recording. You will see a menu option called Sensitivity on the right side.  By default it is usually set to about Medium Low, if you want the camera more sensitive to the amount of motion that triggers recording you will want to raise the sensivity by clicking the green circle and sliding it to the right.  Click apply to save your settings.  If you are using Full Screen motion grids and want to apply the same setting to all cameras you can use the Copy button to bring up the Copy To sub-menu and click the appropriate boxes to apply it to the other cameras (this will be done in the same way you applied the schedule to all cameras earlier in this guide).  If you want to setup the motion grip to be custom for each camera you will need to click the drop-down list on the Camera sub-menu to allow you to switch cameras (see below).  Select the next camera and repeat the step above. PRE AND POST RECORD TIME CONFIGURATION GUIDE: Setting Up The Pre & Post Record Time for Motion Recording.  Pre-recording is how long before motion occurs you want the recording to begin and the post- recording is for how long the DVR continues to record after motion stops. Back on the Main Menu, click on the Record icon. When the Record Menu opens, click the Parameters button on the left side bar. Click the More Settings button at the bottom of the page. When the More Settings sub-menu comes up, you will see a drop-down menu for both Pre-record and Post-record. Set them for the desired value and then click OK. Click Apply then repeat these steps for each camera.  **Note: you can use the copy function to apply the settings to the other cameras, but keep in mind that it will apply all video parameters settings to those cameras as well (i.e. resolution, frame rate, bit rate, and so on).
