What is the difference between PIR mode and normal motion detection?
While typical motion detection software is designed so that the camera always gets caught and the module evaluates whether some movements are involved, the PIR mode is anesthetized and wakes up from the PIR sensor.
Difference in PIR consumption and normal motion detection
The mode of consumption, the normal motion detection, is essentially the same as if the camera is constantly recorded, i.e. 200 to 250 mA .
In PIR mode the consumption is about 5-7 mA .
speed recording activated
Start recording when routine motion detection is almost immediate (0-1 sec.). Since it is in PIR mode, the entire module is essentially off, it takes 7 seconds to start recording .
The PIR mode is not suitable for use, for example, scanning the input because before the start of the module, so that the general belief is the person away. On the other hand, it is advisable to use the PIR mode, for example, scan the inside of an office, apartment or warehouse where people move over a longer period of time.
How to PIR Recording Mode
In the camera menu, you can set the time after which the device will distribute the tracks. You can set this value from 1 to 5 minutes.
When the drop PIR motion sensor activates the recording in the selected time period. If at any time during this period of the PIR sensor the movement is detected again, the next record will automatically start after the first run.
This is a great advantage compared to competing products that are usually firstly deactivated First part of the run, and then start to re-detect motion, and the entire module needs to be reactivated, which could cause delays of more than 10 seconds between individual recordings.
