I have a v3 cam pointed at my backyard and yesterday upon taking my dog out first thing about 7am an unfamiliar alarm type of sound started. Took me a bit to figure out it was the v3 cam up on the balcony but I could see the red light flashing on the front. But there was nothing showing up in the app to indicate the siren was on, so I had to go upstairs and unplug the unit to get it to stop.
I have never enabled the siren and confirmed that the settings in the app showed everything disabled. I’m unsure what may have caused the siren to go off, but I had never heard that sound before so I’m confident it was triggered precisely when I walked out and the cam detected AI/person for some reason. Now I’m a bit worried any of my other cameras including the one in the sleeping kids’ room would sound an unintended alarm. Does anyone know of a FW bug related to this that might be fixed in upcoming releases?
The only other thing I can think of is I’m using a 16.4’ USB cable from Amazon that is probably longer than optimal for voltage drop on the cable. A low power supply voltage might cause unexpected behavior even though that seller claims this cable is compatible etc.
