IP camera motion detection settings change from Server Side to No Motion Detection after upgrading the Digital Sentry software.


Upgrading the Digital Sentry software from version 7.2.30 or below to versions 7.3.208 or 7.4.149 causes IP cameras configured for "Server Side" motion detection to change to "No Motion Detection".

The ability to choose "No Motion Detection" as a configuration option was added in Digital Sentry software version 7.3.208, this option was mistakenly selected when upgrading from an older DS version to either 7.3.208 or 7.4.149.


Resolved with the release of Digital Sentry 7.4.320.7640, "Server Side" selection is no longer altered when upgrading.
