How to record a Vivotek IP camera with motion detection

This web page describes how to record a Vivotek IP camera with motion detection and time-lapse permanent recordings. C-MOR is very easy and quick to understand. It takes a view seconds only and C-MOR records an IP camera. Optimization in motion detection or the length of recordings can be done later. C-MOR supports a wide range of IP cameras which are all available in the configuration menu. Simply select the camera you want to hook up to C-MOR and all is done.

C-MOR video surveillance is configured by web interface only. All settings are made through the web management surface.

Log in to your C-MOR video surveillance system. Simple enter the IP address of the C-MOR in your web browser window. You can get a Free version of C-MOR, software version or a C-MOR video surveillance appliance from this web page.
