Black out Areas from your Surveillance
The Privacy Mask Menu allows you to black out areas from your surveillance. E.g. you can still see a part of the public street in front of your house on your surveillance videos. But you cannot adjust the camera angle any more. Now you can setup up to 4 masks to prevent the street from showing up in your surveillance footage - just activate an area and draw its shape onto the image.
Tip: You can use the privacy mask to hide from the Motion Detection Areas to avoid false triggers.
