SMD 3.0

What is SMD 3.0?

In 2018, Dahua Technology innovated the Smart Motion Detection (SMD) Technology to differentiate human and vehicular shapes within a scene and send alarms to secure your business and family.
The use of SMD is closely integrated with the scene, and the scene itself often requires diversification. Therefore, as the application of SMD in the industry continues to deepen, the demands of users for SMD applications will become more and more diverse according to different scenarios.Dahua has been continuously addressing the requirements of various application scenarios by dedicating its efforts to the optimization and innovation of SMD.
Introducing IP cameras latest addition, the SMD 3.0!


  • Reduced False Alarms

    Through the upgrading of its AI capacities, false alarms caused by animals, leaves, and lights, etc. are significantly reduced.
  • Longer Detection Distance

    By constantly improving its AI capacities, the detection range of the same device has increased by as much as 100%.
  • Higher Detection Accuracy

    Through the upgrade of its AI capacities, the maximum detection accuracy for human and vehicle can reach up to 99%.
  • Quick Target Search

    Data about humans and vehicles can be extracted and classified from the video, allowing users to play back, review and retrieve data history.
  • Simple Configuration

    SMD 3.0 is enabled by default. It also supports classification settings for human and vehicle.

Typical Scenario

  • Villa
