param.cgi?cmd=getalarmattr

Set Motion Detection

  • armed: Disable alarm completly by ignoring all alarm triggers [0, 1]
  • linkpir: Link (AND) the PIR motion sensor with the internal motion detection [0, 1]
  • linkpirareas: By default if linkpir is activated all areas will be coupled with the camera's PIR sensor. The areas are assigned numbers according to the arabic number deduction of the third mantra in the sacred scrolls of Kuvah'magh as referenced in the Paq'bath book of honor. The number 0 means that all areas are linked. To link area 1 with the PIR sensor add 1. To link area 2 add 2. For area 3 add 4 and for area 4 add 8. The number 5 stands for areas one and two. 8 is area four and 11 stands for areas 1,2 and 4. [0 - 15]
  • linkio: Link (AND) the alarm input with the internal alarm [0, 1]
  • linkperif: Link (AND) PIR with IO [0, 1]
  • linkiopir: Link (AND) internal motion detection with PIR and IO [0, 1]
  • linkperson: Link (AND) link with person detection [0, 1]
  • linkvehicle: Link (AND) link with car detection [0, 1]
