Settings

Before being able to record anything, you will need to specify your capture device. A capture device is what we call: a camera. This camera can be a USB, RPi or IP camera. By default the RPi camera is selected, so if you are planning to use a IP camera make sure to change it on the settings page.

The settings page allows you to modify and tweak the camera and motion settings.

Besides selecting the capture device, you will have different options to make the detection more intelligent, such as defining a regions of interest, or an activation timeline (when Kerberos Open Source should be active).

The region of interest allows you to inspect a specific region of the camera.
