WAVE: Smart Motion Search

Smart Motion Search is the fastest way to search for video events using WAVE's motion detection feature. Smart Motion Search only works on cameras that have motion detection enabled and configured. Smart Motion can analyze a year's worth of recorded motion data in 5 seconds.
