  1. There is no “Video Detect” Button on this point.
    Just “abnormality”.

    Wie kann ich es einstellen, dass wenn sich etwas bewegt die Kamera ein Video aufnimmt ?

    1. I think you were probably checking the setting of the recorder but not IP camera. You see, the only the IP camara can detect the object and send the message to your recorder. The recorder will try to response. You will need to login your IP camera with the software, you should see the motion detection option.
