How To Set Up Motion Detection

How To Setup Motion Detection On Your Zencam Camera.


With Zencam cameras, setting up motion detection is a snap. Please note, when setting up motion detection on your camera, motion events will be recorded and accessed on either the cloud or via a micro SD card depending on your preference. To set up motion detection on your device, please follow the steps provided below: 

Step 1: Please log into your camera via the Zencam Security app. 

Step 2: Once you are logged into your camera, please select the settings (gear wheel) icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen.


Step 3: In the settings menu, please tap on the "Motion Detection" tab. 


Step 4: In the motion detection tab, please make sure to toggle the toggle switch to the "On" position to enable motion detection on your camera. 


Note: If you are interested in setting up snapshots for your motion detection events you will need to enable the "Motion Detection Snapshots" toggle switch located in this menu. Snapshots in the Zencam app can only be accessed via email notifications. To complete the process, you will need to toggle the "Email Notifications" toggle switch to the "On" position and save your settings. When complete, you will then need to setup email alerts in the app to begin receiving snapshots of your recorded events.
