Here at Logitech we are constantly working to improve our products to better meet your needs, and have been working on improving the motion detection capabilities of our Alert digital video security camera line.
Just in time for the holidays, we are excited to release a software upgrade that substantially improves your Alert cameras’ ability to detect and record the events that matter most to you. The new software will significantly reduce the number of false recordings caused by micro-movements and lighting variations. The upgrade also includes improvements to ensure you do not miss recordings.
In addition to sharing our new software release, I also want to take this opportunity to quickly point out an existing Logitech Alert feature that allows you to define motion detection zones or areas of interest within your camera’s field of view. By defining the areas that are most important to you (e.g., your front door or your garage door), you can ignore areas of movement (e.g., busy streets or swaying trees) that are not important for recording and alerting.
To define your custom areas of interest, simply go to the settings page on your Commander software or Web Commander and follow these steps:
- Select the ‘Motion Detection’ tab
- Select the ‘Draw your own zones’ options
- Click and drag on the image over the areas you want to include for motion detection and alerting
You can draw up to 16 individual zones for each camera and resize the zones at any time. In the below example we are only interested movement on the walkway so the area outside the green motion zones will be ignored.
To maximize your Logitech Alert system, just use these simple steps, along with your new software upgrade, and experience the full power of recording and alerting year round.
