. Q: What are the blockout area and activity zone? How to setup ?

A: You can set home position and blockout/activity areas from the app's live view screen, by selecting the "set home position" icon (the icon with vertical downward arrow" sign).
By drawing blockout areas, you block out those areas you are not interested in, ignoring all the events happening in those areas.
By drawing activity zones, you specify those zones you are interested in. The device will only report on events happening in these zones.
Only one type of area can be drawn on the screen, and up to 4 areas are allowed.
To switch between different blockout areas and activity zones, please go to (iOS: Settings->ALERT/Alert Zones->Mode, Android: Settings->Alert detection->Alert Zones/Mode).
Blockout areas and activity zones will be effective only at the "home position". You will get an "activity alert" if there are any events (excluding those, which have been filtered out) been detected when blockout areas/activity zones are effective.

. Q: What kind of alert types will my iCamPro report? When?

A: There are seven types of them -
1. Motion alert - triggered when movement is detected.
2. Audio alert - triggered when audio sound is greater than the threshold.
3. Activity alert - triggered when there are motion events detected in the activity zones or when blockout areas is effective. "Motion sensor" has to be enabled to make "Activity alert" work.
4. Face alert - triggered when human face is detected.
5. Offline/online notifications - the device will notify you once it's no longer connected to the power and/or Internet (offline), or is connected back (online).
6. Live streaming notifications - triggered when sending/stopping live streaming.
7. Privacy mode notifications - triggered when entering/leaving privacy mode.
The settings for offline/online, live streaming and privacy mode notifications are off by default, to enable these notifications, please go to (iOS: Settings/EVENTS->System event notifications. Android: Settings/Alert detection->System event notifications.).
