Configuring Photo Capture Settings
Use this to capture a sequence of photos when an alert is triggered.
To configure photo settings, right click on camera preview and select Edit Camera >> Actions >> Configure button of the Take Photos action
When an event occurs, you may want to take photos of the event. You can take multiple photos as the event is happening.
The values indicate how often a new image should be captured from the selected camera when motion occurs. These settings decide the number of photos to be taken when an alert is triggered.
Total number of Photo taken
Total number of photos taken=m/n.
Photos are saved as JPEG images. You can adjust the quality using the slider. Lower quality produces smaller JPEG file sizes.
The Take Photos Action will be performed when motion is detected or after a specified time interval, depending upon how the camera is configured for Triggering Alerts. In addition to this, you can take photos manually by clicking Take Photo control button.
Photo File name prefix:
When creating a JPEG file, WebCam Monitor starts the file name with a Prefix. You should pick a meaningful prefix that will help you identify the files, like "MainHall" or "DisplayCase". By default, the Use camera name option is checked. Date and Time will be appended to the file name(s) automatically. This can make the photos more useful as evidence.
