I am quite familiar with analogue CCTV and networking etc but I am new to IP Cameras. I have bought a few cameras and a Super Mini NVR. The brand is not one of the commonly mentioned ones, but probably rebranded. Unfortunately the doco leaves a lot to be desired, so there is a lot of steep learning curve going on.
One camera is 1MP/720P and runs I9 protocol. It is working OK.
Another camera is 2MP/1080P and I can display it OK but cannot get Motion Detection recording to work. It is running ONVIF protocol.
First question, what is I9 protocol (or I8)? Can one normally change a camera's protocol from ONVIF to I9? (I can't see anywhere to do that)
Both the camera and the NVR have options to set Motion Detection (MD) areas. I am thinking the MD Area on the camera is only relevant if the camera has its own storage (SD card), which it doesn't. Is that correct? Or does the NVR setting get sent to the camera and update/override what is set in the camera? [edit - it seems the latter is true]
I have noticed an Occlusion Detect setting on the camera. What is that?
