Motion is detected by changes in the pixels of the footage recording on your AVR/DVR/NVR. Motion detection can be used to save space on the hard drive of the recorder if the recorder is set to only record motion. Used in conjunction with 24 hour recording, motion detection can help limit the time spent searching for important events.
