If your Axis camera is missing the Motion detection tab in Config Tool, you must uninstall the Axis Video Motion Detection application from the unit's web page.

The Motion detection tab is hidden when Security Center detects that the Axis Video Motion Detection application is installed on the unit.

  1. Open the unit's web page.
  2. Click Setup > Applications.
  3. Under Installed Applications, select Axis Video Motion Detection and click Remove.
  4. From the System Options menu, reset the camera to its factory settings.


The Motion detection tab is now visible in Security Center.
