The LukWerks Video Surveillance Camera System are one of the newest video surveillance systems that actually rivals very expensive complete professional systems that cost thousands of dollars. These inexpensive video surveillance systems software come packed with features not found anywhere for the price.
The Setup > Recording tab allows you to manage the recording of live video from your cameras to your PC hard drive. It allows you to manage motion detection, schedule recording times, and manage disk usage.
Learn About Motion Detection
By default, each camera automatically records video anytime it detects any motion. Recording only motion has the advantage of saving disk space. Luk Cameras also allow you to change from “entire image” motion detection, to individually defined zones. These smart cameras have the capability of detecting motion in up to 16 regions – which we call motion zones. This is useful if you want to eliminate detection along the road and limit it to the parking lot only. Motion detection works by comparing the difference between consecutive frames of video and calculating if any scene changes have been detected. Each time the camera detects motion it alerts the Werks software and records the event and a few prior frames. Once motion is detected, the system records uninterrupted until 5-seconds after the motions stops. This could be seconds or minutes of compressed video.
Enable & Disable Motion Detection
SETUP > Recording > Enable Motion Detection for camera
The default settings enable motion detection in all cameras you setup. To validate this, open the Setup > Recording tab and inspect the “Enable Motion Detection for All Cameras” option. You will see a checkmark in the checkbox. To disable motion detection, simply click in the checkbox so that the checkmark disappears. Remember that you have disabled it for only the camera selected in the Setup screen. When motion detection is turned off, your cameras will record only during scheduled recording times.
Manage Motion Detection Zones
SETUP > Recording > Enable Motion Detection for cameraWhen you have the Setup > Recording dialog open, Werks enters a special mode that allows you to select and draw motion zones directly on the Live Video image. You must be in Live Mode to access the full functionality when working with motion zones.To manage detection zones for a camera, follow these instructions:
1) Click on the SETUP button and choose the Recording tab.
In the Motion Detection section, check the “Enable Motion Detection for camera” box. Creating and deleting individual zones now is an interaction between the open setup dialog and the live video window.
a) To create a new zone, hold down your left-mouse button on one corner of the region and drag the mouse across the screen to the opposite corner of the zone. (If you decide that you do not like the zone you are creating, you can hit the ESC key before you let go of the mouse.) b) To delete a single zone, left-click anywhere in the zone and then press the Delete key or click the CLEAR SELECTED ZONE button.
c) To delete all zones, click the CLEAR ALL ZONES button.
d) Finally, to detect motion anywhere on the image, click the ENABLE ENTIRE IMAGE button. Remember, you can create up to 16 motion zones per camera.
Set Motion Detection Sensitivity
Setup > Recording > Motion Detection section > Sensitivity Slider.
Use the Sensitivity slider on the Setup > Recording tab to adjust the level of motion sensitivity for each camera. The setting ranges from 0 to 100 sensitive, or low to high sensitivity. 100 is the most sensitivity. You can adjust the sensitivity to meet your needs. A very low number will tell the camera to only detect motion by large objects (a person or car). A high number will increase the sensitivity allowing you to capture small objects like pets or even a passing cloud.
