Beta 9.0 includes long-awaited support for motion detection on all types of IP cameras. Our IP motion detection is designed to eliminate false positives from noisy recordings without ever missing real movement. We’ve also fixed a variety of bugs, made improvements to the web interface, and added presets for Panasonic and Airlive IP cameras.

Technical note:  You will now see the option to enable motion detection in the settings area for each IP camera.

Information on how to upgrade to this release can be found on our Knowledge Base.  During upgrade you will be asked to migrate your mysql database.  This is normal behavior, and just follow the steps when asked for your password.
