  • Time to Stop Tracking: Stop tracking if the object stops or disappears after the set time.


Step 4. Click Schedule to configure the time period for auto tracking. Click the grids to enable/disable the schedule.


Done! When a person/vehicle/pet passes by, your camera will follow it automatically.
