Configuring Motion Zones™

Motion Zones™ allows you to customize your device’s motion detection region. Areas of the camera image that trigger unwanted motion events can be ignored, such as a busy sidewalk or trees blowing in the wind.

To set Motion Zones™

  1. Launch the Lorex Home app.

  2. Tap icon above the channel thumbnail on the Devices screen.

  3. Tap Motion Detection Settings.

  4. Tap Motion Zones™.


To set customized Motion Zones™

This setting can only detect motion in the specified area.

By default, the entire area has a blue overlay, meaning that a motion event happening anywhere on the screen will trigger an event.

General Motion Zone

  1. Tapdelete icon to remove the blue overlay from the entire image.

  2. Tap and drag over the area where you want motion detection enabled.
    Note: The deselected area will grey out and the selected area will be highlighted in blue.

Custom

  1. (Optional) Taperase icon to exclude any area from the Motion Zones™.

  2. (Optional) Tapswitch icon switch the Motion Zones™ to the unselected area.

  3. Tap Save.

Reminder: Motion detection will be disabled for areas of the image without the blue overlay. Disabling motion detection in certain areas of the image is an effective way to eliminate unwanted recordings and notifications caused by contact movement like trees blowing in the wind or regular traffic.
