Note: The sensitivity setting decides how sensitive the camera will be to motion. Lower sensitivity setting can be useful when monitoring an area that has flickering lights, or through a window to the outside. Higher sensitivity setting may be useful when monitoring an area that rarely changes, such as a storeroom or warehouse with less activity.

Note: There are two different types of motion detection.
1. Software or Pixel Change Motion Detection: The camera compares the change in pixels from one frame to another. This is what the DCS-2670L applies.
For example:

2. Hardware or PIR (Passive Infrared Sensor): Motion is detected when an object enters the image and gives off a different heat signature. The DCS-2670L does not have this capability.
