Amazing floating bird caught on video

I use similar cameras (HIKVISION) and my big complaint is that the software sucks. I have mine set to record 24-7 to a NAS box so I have video, but all of the features for motion detection are pretty much useless. I’ve looked for better software but haven’t turned up anything. I actually ended up buying Arlo cameras because the software is so much better even though the cameras are way worse.

Any suggestions for better software?

Have to agree w/you about their (HIKVISION) camera firmware!

You aren’t the owner of this video by any chance, are you?

If so, I saw in the comments that NVR motion detection software found this. Which NVR?

If have a QNAP NAS with Surveillance Station and it’s very meh. I ended up turning off all alerts because I was never able to tune it to an acceptable degree. Like I said earlier, I have 24-7 video so I can go back and find things, but no real time alerts and not good option for remote access.

No. Good luck.

We’ve sort of done that (in reverse) in entertaining a ‘live audience’ visiting our place of work. A large scale model glider mounted to a vibration shaker in a darkened room, with the shaking glider lit by a strobe light. We played with the ‘strobing’ in such a way that the glider’s wings could appear to be flapping slowly… like bird. We appreciated the ohhhs and ahhhs from the little kiddies!
