If monitor can’t show any image of cameras, it can prove the display resolution of NVR is higher than your monitor’s, please adjust the resolution of your monitor to 1280×1024 or use a higher than 1280×1024 resolution monitor to connect NVR. (The monitor’s resolution must be higher than the display resolution of NVR. If not, monitor is not able to show any image of cameras).

Q. Why does wireless camera system send so many email or APP false alert?2022-08-08T07:11:50+00:00

*Check Original Page: Why does wireless camera system send so many email or APP false alert?

To explain this question, we need know the theory how motion detection works.
The NVR system can detect small image optical change. It can be triggered by small image change from camera. Image is transmitted by light signal.
Therefore, even if there is no object in front of camera such as human, animal or car, system may still be triggered by small light change such as floating cloud, shaking leaf.
Most customers hope the system can only be triggered by big object like people and ignore small movement. But based on the theory how motion detection works, there are false alarm.
It is hard to say the system is faulty since not only ANRAN brand system faces such issue, but also other brands who use light sensor to work for motion detection function.

How to reduce email and APP false alert?
1. To reduce false alarm, you can turn the sensibility to lower and set the alarm area. (The alarm area defaults to all areas have been selected.)

2. Click “Arming Time”, you can set the notifications time of email alert and APP alert.

3. Please upgrade your camera (you can upgrade it from the network server)
