If you have motion detection set on say the EL or TP series 2mp cameras,  how quick will the camera start recording to the nvr once it detects motion? 

 

The reason for the question is lets say a vehicle passes by at 10mph,  depending on how the camera is positioned,  if it takes 1 second for the camera to start recording then you may only catch a small portion of the vehicle before it is out of camera view.

actaully, it doesn’t matter how fast the car passes. First, you can set the pre record time so that a certain number of seconds prior to the motion event is included with the motion event recording. When you record motion and set the pre record to say 10 seconds, the NVR or DVR is buffering 10 seconds of video which is then included in the motion recording. Also, the unit is able to record BOTH motion and 24/7 so that you have motion events indexed for easy search but you also have the 24/7 recording available if it missed anything. certain events could be missed with motion, especially when the sensitivity has been reduced and small objects move in view, but the 24/7 recording will always be there.

Can the camera record 10 seconds before the motion if it is not recording 24/7?  I am trying to watch over some property out in the country where my business is located.  I will run the nvr 10 hours a day monday thru friday.  All the rest of the time, I just need to record on motion so I can see who comes in an out of the property as I also have a rental house on the property.  I highly doubt the cameras will record to well at night since there is no light on the property except for the IR lighting that will be on the camera.  I mean it is dark out there at night and if I am recording 24/7 I would assume the IR lighting on the camera would stay on all the time which will light up the property and probably bother my renters.

My father always said if anyone is going to come on the property at night they will need a light to see and we will see them.LOL

the NVR can pre-record up to 60 sec and post record 60sec as well. 10 sec is the minimum. The cameras IRs are not visible by the human eye, unless you see the camera directly and all you will see is red lights. IRs is not like regular light.
