I have two Dahua IP cameras, one in the front of my house, one out back. They should be not be triggering on the same motion events since they are covering very different areas. However, when I search for motion events in SmartPSS (or the mobile app), both cameras show motion events at exactly the same times and appear to be 'synced' or linked to the first channel.

I can't imagine this is the expected behavior. Is there a config option I missed somewhere?

I have the PC-NVR added as a device in SmartPSS and I've added both cameras to the NVR, so recording DOES work. Like I said, the cameras just appear to be linked.

I'm running the latest and greatest versions, 1.14.2.

Thanks,
Justin

Bump.

Nothing here? Any particular tricks or quirks to setting up the PC-NVR? Like I said, I can get motion recording on both channels, with the caveat that channel TWO only records when camera ONE detects motion.

Thanks.

I suspect a bad config in the Event(s) - as in what to do on triggered events.

Correction: I verified that the opposite is also true. The second camera will record on motion and record on both channels.

At least I'm not missing events, but still odd that it records on the channel that didn't trigger the motion.

Any help from those who use PC-NVR would be appreciated.

This is happening because you have multiple channels set to record in the event settings under record on both of these cameras. In the event motion detect settings there is a setting that says record channel. You probably have all the channels highlighted. This will allow you to record video on other channels when the channel you are on detects motion. Here is a great video that covers how to properly set up motion detection in smart PSS. This software is actually MontavueGO but its identical to smart PSS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9LWevtEDT4

Yeah, I did make sure that only one channel was set to record. That's why I find it weird.
