This is a software tool that can let you set up video surveillance with motion detection.
This is a software program for video surveillance and motion capture. It is possible to use unlimited number of cameras with a mix of IP and USB configured ones. You will be able to set up such that video capture starts on motion detection. SMS and or email alerts could be sent out to specified contacts when motion is detected. The program can also play a sound file on detection of motion to alert any local operator. Quite often too frequent triggering of the alarms irritates users, and they tend to switch off the alarms. That is dangerous as far as security is concerned. This tool will help you avoid that, by letting you set up sensitivity of each zone. This would ensure that movement of rats in a warehouse does not trigger the alarm but an intruder does.
Besides starting recording on movement detection, you can have schedules set up. Large amount of recording is always a problem with such systems, and this tool lets you select compression manually or automatically. Annotations, by way of watermarks, can be added to the pictures/videos that may be date-time stamps and other details you decide. The video player that is available helps easy review of the recordings. You are able to capture video frames and have a grid overlaid view of the video recordings. Recording of each camera can be guided by its own settings for monitoring and recording. Built on the style of the Outlook interface, it is easy to operate and would not need much familiarization time. This is a very good product. If you are looking for a similar solution, this is a good candidate for a trial in your exact set up.
