Learn More about Smart Search, Tamper Detection, and Corridor Format
We've added new technology pages to the VideoSurveillance.com Learning Center, so you can better understand how IP surveillance cameras work! These technology pages explain what the camera or software feature is, how it works, and some suggested applications.
If you're looking to save time while reviewing surveillance videos, our new Smart Search page explains how you can set up searches to look only for motion in the videos that matches you search settings. This helps you quickly find only relevant videos, and prevents time spent manually watching each clip.
Worried about your surveillance camera being vandalized? Tamper detection settings in your camera can be set up to send you alerts when the camera is hit, the view is blocked, or the camera focus is obscured. These alerts let you know when something has happened, so you can log into your system to see the problem.
If you are recording surveillance video in a narrow area like a hallway, stairwell, or down a long driveway, Corridor Format may help you get the best quality video from your camera. This unique way of recording video uses a vertical orientation, so your camera can focus on the area in front of it and not the walls or blank spaces it would record with the standard horizontal format.
