This sets whether the camera takes a Photo, Video, or Photo+Video every time it is triggered.
In Photo+Video mode, it will take a photo first and start recording a video two seconds after it takes the photo. The camera will send the photo but it will not send the video unless you request it using the app or website.
Up to 8 characters Long. The name tag is shown on the photo Info Strip when Time-Stamp is on. Which is different from Camera Description.
This is the resolution of the photo that is saved to the SD card. and the size of the photo that will be sent if you request the HD photo after viewing the thumbnail. See Thumbnail Size for information on the resolution of the thumbnails that are transmitted when the camera is triggered.
1, 2, or 3 photos can be taken in succession when your camera is in photo mode. The camera will transmit all photos in succession.
This is the time the camera waits between photos in the photo burst when Photo Burst is set to 2 or 3 photos (only for GoCam and Ghost models).
This is the resolution of the thumbnails that the camera sends whenever it is triggered.
Normal is recommended for faster transmission speed.
Large is recommended for higher image clarity.
This determines the length of the recorded video in seconds when the camera is in Video or Photo + Video mode.
This is the resolution of the video that the camera records when triggered.
Video Record Sound
This lets you choose whether or not the camera records sound when in Video or Photo+Video modes.
Trigger Mode determines your camera’s motion detection behavior
Always On: Your camera’s motion sensor will detect movement on a 24-hour schedule.
Start-Stop: With this setting enabled the camera to operate within your specified Start & Stop time periods with independent trigger and Timelapse settings for each Start & Stop period. Keep in mind, in this mode, camera will only uses the Trigger and Timelapse intervals under each Start & Stop.
Ex: If you set Start-Stop 1's start time to 6:00 AM and stop time to 8:00 PM, then the camera will only take pictures from 6 AM to 8 PM.
This is how sensitive the camera is to a difference in temperature between moving objects and the environment in its field of view.
Low Temps below 32 °F.
Normal Between 32 °F and 90 °F.
High Temps higher than 90 °F.
Off: The camera will not take motion photos. Timelapse and Scheduled Events still take effect.
These two settings are used to specify when the camera can take pictures and what settings it uses for Trigger Interval and Timelapse during either or both times. When one or both of these is set, the camera will ignore the normal Trigger and Timelapse interval settings and use the settings under each Start-Stop instead.
Example 1: If you set Start-Stop 1's start time to 6:00 AM and stop time to 8:00 PM, then the camera will only take pictures from 6 AM to 8 PM.
Example 2: If you set Start-Stop 1's start time to 6:00 AM and stop time to 8:00 PM and Start-Stop 2 for 12:00 AM through 6:00 AM (with a different trigger interval or perhaps timelapse), the camera will take pictures from 12:00 AM and 8:00 PM but will not take pictures from 8:00 PM to 12:00 AM.
If you want the camera to work all 24 hours, but with different settings, you must use Start-Stop 1 to cover part of the day and Start-Stop 2 to cover the remaining hours of the day.
This is the "quiet time" between when a motion-triggered photo is sent and the next photo can be triggered.
When the camera is triggered by motion, it will take and send the photo / video, then it will wait for the specified Trigger Interval before it will take another motion-triggered photo / video.
The camera will take pictures at specified intervals. When the camera is in Timelapse mode, it also will be triggered by motion unless Sensitivity is set to Off.
This sets what days the camera will operate. you can select Select All, one or more days of the week for the camera to take photos (only available for Ghost / GoLive).
Note: scheduled events set to "Every day" will still occur, just not motion-triggered or timelapse pictures/videos.
Sets which region of the world the camera is to be set in.
Camera Time Zone
This is the time zone that the camera's internal clock will sync to
Eastern: select New York | Central: select Chicago | Mountain: select Denver | Pacific: select Los Angeles
You can set the flash power to either LOW or HIGH, depending on how much light is needed. Low flash is suitable for close targets and uses less power than high flash (only found in GoCam and Ghost models).
High - distances greater than 15 feet
Low - distances of 15 feet or less
Note: The flash needs to bounce off a "backdrop" (e.g., trees/shrubs in the background, a wall) in order to illuminate the scene. Flash illumination varies depending on the distance to the subject and the backdrop.
This indicator reflects on the the current power level of your camera and help keep you aware of when you need to change or recharge your camera’s power source.
Battery type options available are:
AA + 12v battery
AA + Solar
This turns on or off the information strip at the bottom of each photo. The info strip displays the following information:
- Name tag
- Camera trigger type
M = Motion
E = Schedule Event / Manual Photo
T = Time lapse
S = Real Time / SMS command
F = Photo taken after Format SD card.
- Time when the photo was taken
- Moon phase
- Power level
P5 = full voltage
P3 = voltage getting low
P1 = voltage very low change batteries ASAP
P0 = batteries are just about dead.
This enables the camera to retrieve its geolocation when camera movement is detected. The information is also transmitted with scheduled event 1 so it is updated once every 24 hours if the camera is not moved (only available for Ghost / GoLive).
This enables Camera Locator even when the camera is OFF. Camera Locator must be on for this work (only available for Ghost / GoLive).
Enabling this will allow the camera to use its Livestream and receive real time commands (only available for GoLive).
These settings control whether the camera send the photos and videos taken based on your trigger settings.
When Send Photos is on, the camera will send any photos/videos it has taken. When Send Photos is off, the camera takes and only saves the photos and videos to the SD card but it does not send them. This will not affect schedule event settings.
This sets the maximum number of photos the camera is allowed to send each day. For example, if you set it to 25, then the camera will only send up to 25 photos within 24 hours, then any photos taken after that will be saved to the SD card and not sent.
Scheduled Events 1 - 10
These settings allow you to schedule the camera to either Send a Status Report, Take a Photo, or set up Batch Sending.
Scheduled Event 1 sends a mandatory status report every day. The only thing you can change for this event is the time, which defaults to midnight. This makes the camera check in at least once a day to get settings updates and requests.
All other other nine events are available for you to request a photo, status report, or batch send event (Ghost / GoLive models only), either every day or only a specific day.
You can set only one type of scheduled event at any given hour of the day.
