First, I am a bit of a Hik newbie so maybe it is my lack of experience that is the real problem .
I have the above camera and was pulling my hair out trying to get the motion recording to work. I am used to doing the following:
- Event > Basic Event > Enable Motion Detection
- Storage > Schedule Settings > Enable, Set to motion, copy to all days.
Done and done.
On this newer EasyIP 4.0 DS-2CD2646G1-IZ(S) camera those steps do not work. I had to do some extra configuration to make motion recording work.
- System > Maintenance > System Service and under the software section, > Enable Motion Detection first then complete the above steps 1 and 2. I am wondering if anyone else has seen this or if I am loosing my mind..
Is this an added step with these newish cameras?
Camera Firmware - this is a US market camera.
Thanks in advance for any/all help. I hope someone can confirm this is normal and that I am just being paranoid :-).
