How do I use motion detection on a Sapphire Series camera?


In order to use motion detection on your Sapphire series camera, make sure to check in with your client support manager. They'll get everything set up.


Note: Motion detection alerts are only available to admin-level users.


To configure your motion detection settings, first, click the Admin button at the top of the interface, then click Motion Detection.

Under Workday Schedule, there are three options: Never, Always and Between. Selecting Never will disable motion detection alerts during the week. Selecting Always will detect all motion during the week. The Between option will allow you to input the jobsite's approximate work hours, meaning alerts will only come in after-hours.
