PIR motion detection

Post by Demoura » Wed Jan 25, 2017 9:37 am

Hi

I currently use in my house 2 Dlink Ip cameras and the D-link video recording solution.
Thinking about moving to a NAS and would like to consolidate the surveillance there.
Would the QNAP SS accept PIR motion detection, or only video motion detection?

regards

The NAS doesn't have any digital I/O channels as you have in a home security system.
However, when using a camera that either has a built-in PIR detector and Alarm I/O, such as the Hikvision 'cube' cameras (2432 etc) or a camera with Alarm I/O these could be used to trigger recordings or other event actions.

Hi all,
I have managed to make a Hikvision Cube camera with PIR and Alarm I/O to record on the Qnap SS only on the events triggered by the PIR, having disabled the soft motion detection. I was exasperated by the number of false alarms triggered by the soft motion detection on clouds and light changes as this camera was monitoring an entrance glass door.
So, I hardwired 1 wire strap from Alarm O to Alarm I and by closing the circuit it is recording following this logic: PIR ->> Alarm Out A->1 ->> wire -> Alarm In A<-1 ->> Notify Surveillance Center ->> QNap SS ->> Alarm Input1 = Closed ->> Start Recording Channels 1&2.
On the QNAP SS, on the Event management -> Cube camera -> Traditional Mode -> Start recording when the camera's alarm input 1 is Closed.
I am writing here as I haven't managed to find it explained on any other forum this setup.

Cheers!
