18  Heat Map

Heat map works as a graphical overlay that displays the area and frequency of motion detected in the camera’s image using a warm-to-cool color scheme. The warm colors indicate sections with the most motion detected, red being the highest detected areas, and the cool colors point to the lowest detected areas.
Heat Map is compatible with certain Lorex IP cameras. For a complete list of compatible cameras, navigate to your recorder series at .
