Motion detection is of great significance when you park or leave your vehicle for a long amount of time. That's because it can automatically detect any movement, as well as a change in light that is in view of the lens of the camera.
When the front camera detects the movement of an object, it will wake up and automatically start recording for 30 seconds and save the recording in the usual video folder. And also when the motion Detection is turned on, and no movement is detected, then the screen will turn off after 3 minutes. This type of parking mode is the most energy efficient.
5S Pre-recording Explained
It is a very highlight feature of the dash cam to have a golden 5S pre-recording function powered by motion detection. Commonly, the dash cam starts recording when the machine detects a collision or an object moving during parking mode. It records the picture from the beginning of the recording after the picture.
The five-second pre-recording function also starts recording after the machine detects a collision or an object moving. But it automatically retrieves the previous footage of 5s, which clearly and completely shot the entire event.
For example, if someone walks by your vehicle, the built-in video sensor will detect movement and start to record the full process. Footage that is recorded will be marked as motion and also be stored in a separate video folder.
Motion detection has adjusted levels:
Low/medium/high that can be adjusted, and the corresponding detection ranges for motion detection is 6.6ft/13ft/19.7ft. Keep in mind that the motion sensitivity, while adjustable, remains sensitive as the dash cam would rather record something than potentially miss out on important footage.
Note: It is significant that you turn off the dash cam motion detection feature when you start driving again, as when the car is moving, the motion detection mode can interfere and prevent the camera from recording throughout your whole journey.
