Signals which are fed into the recording system from outside are used to control the operation of the SISTORE MX during this process.
  • Page 50: Alarm

    The last picture of a camera is constantly being compared with the current picture of the same camera. If there is a change in the picture content in a pre-set manner, SISTORE MX recognises a movement in the picture. This process is called "Motion Detection" and can be activated for each individual camera.
