Security Camera Motion Sensing

CCTV systems don’t use ‘true’ motion detection. The security camera analyses a change in a group of pixels. If the change is consistent with a person or vehicle moving, it triggers a motion event. What happens next depends on your security system configuration. Options are:

  1. the CCTV system tags that event on the video recorder. You can then ask the recorder to playback all the footage it tagged as motion events.
  2. As above but you’ll also receive a notification on your phone along with a short video clip showing what caused the motion event.

Because it’s not true motion detection the camera can be fooled by things like shadows from trees (which change position during the day), reflections, birds and insects – especially at night.

There are some sensitivity adjustment and the ability to block certain parts on the image from reporting motion sensing, however, it is still possible to get false triggers.

With a bit of adjustment, however, the system can be tweaked to the point of providing reasonably reliable motion alerts.


Starlight and Artificial Intelligence

The best camera in the world is useless unless you’re notified before a crime occurs. This gives you a chance to respond immediately to the threat. All our systems include powerful alarm system functions (also known as Video Analytics)including:

  •  Perimeter detection – detects a person entering your driveway, approaching the front or back door, climbing over your side fence. Customise the detection zone yourself in seconds!
  • Object Removed” detection.
  • Car Parked Where It Shouldn’t Be’ detection.

If the security camera detects a breach you’ll receive an alert on your smartphone with a video clip so you can respond in real-time.

You’re far more likely to avoid theft or vandalism to your property if you can detect the crime before it has occurred.

WITHOUT these features, CCTV security cameras are simply a reactive tool – you don’t know a problem has occurred til its too late.

Don’t get stuck with outdated CCTV security technology.

Anyone can install a security camera on your home and produce a clear image. That’s the easy part.

Implementing a reliable notification and response system turns a ‘dumb’ camera system into a useful tool to protect your home.

Your installer will recommend the best places to locate each security camera. Each site is different so a bit of planning is needed before camera installation starts.

The final locations will depend on your desired result.

Generally, there are two ways to install cameras in a home:

 1 – Spot Protection: the camera looks at a particular area where an intruder is likely to attempt entry to a building.

For a home, these might be the front door, side gate, back patio or carport.

When armed, any movement that occurs in the cameras field of view immediately sends an alarm notification to your smartphone along with a video clip clearly showing the event.

2 – General Surveillance: A wide, non-specific view of a large area.

This could be the front yard or back yard or the street at the front of your home.

These locations are OK for keeping an eye on the general area around your home while you’re out but useless in detecting or preventing an actual crime.


The mounting height of CCTV cameras is important.

To achieve the best results in a home CCTV installation the cameras should be mounted between 2.4 and 2.7 metres from the ground.

 This height makes the cameras harder to vandalise and produces a useful image.

If the cameras are mounted higher than this, you miss faces, vehicle types and other important information.

This is because the cameras need to angled down toward the ground to compensate for the higher mounting position – the angle is wrong.

When mounted at the recommended height, the camera angle is almost parallel to the ground. This maximises the infra-red night vision capabilities.

 For double story homes, it’s important to stick to this recommended height. If you’re building a new home and can pre-cable for cameras, otherwise compromises will need to be made.

This will most likely mean conduit or duct around the outside of your home. Installing cameras in two-story homes takes substantially longer and more skill than a single-story home. Consequently, you can expect to pay more for the installation.

An experienced CCTV security installer will be able to achieve a neat professional result.


 Wireless CCTV security cameras are not a viable alternative to a professionally installed hardwired camera security system.

There are four reasons for this

1 – They are battery operated so the batteries must be recharged or replaced regularly.

2 – Battery-powered cameras do not record continuously.

They are in a low-power ‘sleep’ mode until they detect motion. Then they ‘wake-up’ and record the activity. Significant and important footage is lost in the lag between the camera detecting motion and the commencement of recording. The recordings are stored in the cloud, not on a digital video recorder

3 – Poor Night Vision.

Professional cameras use powerful infrared LEDs to illuminate a large area in front of the camera.

These LEDs can illuminate 20 or 30 metres away from the camera  – and they use a lot of power.

Battery-powered cameras use between 1-3 low power infrared LEDs or a single white LED to illuminate the area.

This means the security camera can only see objects 5-8 metres from the camera at best.

4 – Many wireless systems store the footage in the cloud. Most allow you to access video clips for free for a short period of time. If you want to access your video for longer you need to pay a monthly subscription fee.

There is certainly a place for wireless cameras.

  • They’re quick and easy to install
  • The feature list and performance is growing as technology improves.
  • Can enhance your home security

They are not, however, a direct substitute for professionally installed hardwired cameras – not yet anyway.

It may take six months or ten years but the day will come when all camera systems will be wireless.

If you’re on a budget and are reasonably handy, wireless CCTV security cameras are a useful home security asset and worth considering.
