Recommended Camera Capture Settings for Version 2 Appliances

Issue:

Recommended Camera Capture Settings for Version 2 Appliances

Product Line:

NetBotz

Environment:

NetBotz version 2Video capture

Cause:

Configuring video capture for alerts and posting.

Resolution:

When configuring the camera on Version 2 Appliances to capture video during an alert condition, the following are recommended (best practices) configuration settings:

* 640x480 at 1 or 2 frames per second for up to 25 seconds
* 320x240 at 4 or 5 frames per second for up to 25 seconds


Notes:

* Tune and optimize the camera motion sensor to only capture video when something “interesting” happens and reduce false alarms/false motion.
* Do not enable audio recording on the NetBotz 500 unless you need it, doing so puts additional load on the appliance and consumes additional RAM and disk space.
