Smart detection alarm settings include setting up a sensitivity, alarm delay and object size for person motion, vehicle motion or pet motion.
Applies to: Reolink cameras support smart detection
Note: only 8MP/12MP cameras with smart detection support the pet motion settings.
Step 1. Log in to your device on the Reolink App and tap to enter the Device Settings page.
Step 2. Then tap Detection Alarm. Under this page, you could set up a sensitivity, alarm delay time, and customize the size for pet detection respectively.
Step 3. Go to Sensitivity > Smart detection. Slide the bar to adjust the sensitivity for different detection types. Then tap Save.
Note: When the sensitivity for pet detection is set to Low (0-33), the camera only detects moving objects that look like pets a lot. In this way, the false alarm will be reduced.
Step 4. Go to Alarm Delay. Slide the bar to adjust the alarm delay time (0-8 seconds), during which the object could stay in the detection zone without triggering any alarm. Then tap Save.
Step 5. Go to Object Size and choose a detection object Now you could customize the size for the object to be detected by the camera. After finishing the setting, tap Save.
- Tap Minimum Object, then drag to adjust the size of the orange rectangle. If a moving object is smaller than this rectangle, it will not trigger the alarm even if it is a pet.
- Tap Maximum Object, then drag to adjust the size of the blue rectangle. If a moving object is larger than this rectangle, it will not trigger the alarm even if it is a pet.
- If you want to redraw the minimum/maximum object, just tap the Trash Can icon and repeat the above operations.
Step 6. If you need to be alerted when the camera detects a motion of these alarm types, you need to configure the detection type in different alarm schedules, for example, the push notification Schedule.
