Just curious how most of you configure you're motion detection settings? Basically, if you have MD settings configured what do you do if you are home for the day and going to be working around the house for instance?

I know the simple answer is probably I just turn off motion for the day or whatever..but is that really the best solution? I am trying to work on other possibilities besides the stock software for my ACTi cameras and one of the things I am considering, that the current stock software does not offer, is an easy way to turn off motion settings...(other than logging into each camera and unchecking a box which could be a pain in the arse when you have a multi-camera set-up).

Thanks for the assistance....

Michael

I believe you can scheduled an event to turn off motion detect and then create another event to turn it back on.

Is that how you have yours configured...?

I am really leaning towards switching over to something like Blue Iris....I think I saw on one of their videos they have a stop light or something to turn on / off the MD settings.

Dunno...I am pretty frustrated at this point with the software provided by ACTi. Not sure if updating to the new firmware makes any significant setup experience or not.

Thanks,
Michael

BlueIris does have a stop light. You can now configure it so you can turn off various features, recording, alerts, webserver, etc.. I use it to turn off alerts. I can always delete anything that is recorded.

I believe that you can start and stop the red light via a browser. I haven't done that though.

I have a event that triggers on all my ACTi cameras when the camera switches to night mode to use the alternate motion detect settings. You can also trigger based on the alarm input so technically, you can have a push button that activates motion detection or suspends it. Also, you can write a script that sends URL commands to suspend or activate recordings. Pretty much anything you can do through the web interface you can do with URL commands on ACTi cameras. They have this information in their knowledge base.

As for their NVR software, I believe NVR 3.0 you can specify a schedule of when to record or not record.

BlueIris does have a unique feature that suspends recording when click on the traffic light signal, but it's not automatic, you have to do it.
