4.3. Activating the Motion Detector
If you have configured VideoMonitor to detect motion on your camera, you should start the motion detector by clicking "Activate Motion Detector" under the "File" menu. (The motion detector can also be activated by clicking the green arrow with the "))" icon on the toolbar).

Once the motion detector is activated, VideoMonitor will automatically save a snapshot (or perform whatever action has been configured in your VideoMonitor preferences) whenever motion is detected. The word "Motion" will also appear on the VideoMonitor toolbar; this word will automatically light up whenever motion is detected on your camera.

You can also have VideoMonitor automatically enable the motion detector by enabling the appropriate option on the "General" tab in your VideoMonitor preferences.
