Lorex Secure / FLIR Secure App: Using High Dynamic Range (HDR)

High Dynamic Range (HDR) improves image clarity in high-contrast lighting, revealing details in extremely bright and dark areas of the image. For example, if your camera faces a doorway or window, the bright light from outdoors can wash out the image, making it difficult to see events both inside the room and outdoors. With HDR enabled, the brightest and the darkest parts of the image become balanced, allowing you to see objects clearly.

Prerequisites:

  • Install the Lorex Secure app, available for Android on the Google Play Store or iOS (Apple) on the App Store.
    OR
  • Install the FLIR Secure app, available for Android on the Google Play Store or iOS (Apple) on the App Store.
