If you’re trying to find things happening in a specific location on a camera, our motion search function will make it easy to isolate clips of motion happening in that specific location rather than watching all the video available for that camera.
Go to the video page with the button on the left hand side of the screen. Choose which camera you would like to use motion search on - we’re going to use the office/kitchen camera.
Press the motion search button at the top right hand side of the screen.
I want to check motion on the bottom drawer. I clicked on the bottom drawer to create a dot of motion search. At the bottom of the screen, you can see a few blue bars on the timeline where motion happens.
The larger and darker bar means that motion is happening in your selected motion area (1). The smaller and lighter bar means that motion could be happening nearby and shadows or other residual motion are happening in your selected motion area (2).
You can use the forward and back arrows to jump between different motion events.
When you find a clip with footage of motion happening that you want to keep, you can share, bookmark and download the footage using the 3 dots in the top right of the screen here.
Tip: Another useful way to use this tool is to draw lines at the tops of door to track anytime someone walks through the door like this:
