If you are unable to lower the sensitivity of the Axis P1428-E camera to get a reliable motion detection performed by the Archiver on its H.264 video stream, you can lower the value of the Vectors weight in the Advanced settings.

What you should know

The Axis P1428-E camera encodes motion vectors differently from most cameras, causing the Archiver's motion detection algorithm to be hyper-sensitive.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Video task.
  2. Select the camera you want to configure and click the Motion detection tab.
  3. Click Advanced settings.
    NOTE: Advanced settings are only visible when Detection is done on: Archiver is selected.
  4. In the H.264 advanced motion detection settings dialog box, lower the Vectors weight to 1 or 0, and click OK.
    This uses the Archiver's motion detection algorithm to respond to Sensitivity settings differently.
  5. Test the motion detection with different sensitivity settings until you get satisfactory results.
  6. Click Apply.
