An integrator has Arecont Vision cameras that are only ONVIF Profile S and were added via ONVIF. Motion detection is not supported in ONVIF Profile S. It is supported in ONVIF Profile T (see https://www.onvif.org/profiles/). If the camera model in question does not support ONVIF Profile T, the camera must be added using the Arecont driver.
