These cameras detect with their PIR sensor and send the alarm signals to the recorder through their coaxial cable.
The recorder has a section within the motion detection where the false alarm filter is configured. So the camera provides no deterrent function without a DVR.
The configuration on the DVR can be seen in the following video:
The recorder models that support this function are all 4N1 recorders from Safire, Hikvision and Hiwatch, according to the specifications described below.
The deterrent action does not work with other brands.
- Hikvision DS-7xxx-Kx series, starting with firmware 3.5.30
- All Safire DVRs with H.265+, starting with firmware 3.5.30.
- All new Safire XVRs are supported.
Firmware 3.x (greater than 3.5.30): Only allows the siren, flash and relay to be activated at the same time, when the PIR sensor performs the detection.
Firmware 4.x : The new user interface GUI4.0 (series 6 and 8) and E-GUI (series 3) already allows to select each action separately.
