The Overlays function enables you to date stamp each motion detected as well as any other details you deem relevant to your particular installation. i.e. Camera location, date and time of each motion detection. This is achieved by opening settings from the main menu, selecting Overlays and simply typing in the information that you wish to appear on your images. Please see the Macros help for more information.

The overlay text can be positioned using the Text Position grid which gives 9 options for placement.

It is advisable to set the date stamp as this information cannot be removed or tampered with after the image has been saved.

Within the Overlays function you can also select the size and style of crosshairs you require, as well as the colour used to highlight moved blocks.
