I have four cameras in front of my apartment complex that I’m using to prove that a tenant has way too many people living there. I need to record EVERY time someone enters and exits, but it’s just not giving me the recorded events I need.
If I turn up the sensitivity it will often record too early and stop after 12 seconds. Can I adjust this length?
If one camera is recording an event it seems that no other camera can record an event for about a minute, so I’ll get someone’s foot entering the frame, and then totally miss them in the other cameras.
I have 32GB cards in the cameras, set to continuous record, but it’s basically impossible to scrub through the video. It might be a bandwidth problem, but it really seems like the camera CPU is too weak. I haven’t once succeeded in getting video of a full event out of the camera.
When I tell it to record just events to the local storage, how can I adjust the length? Ideally, it would record from a minute before the event until a minute after.
I’m really hoping these can become useful for me, but so far they’re just a drain on my time. I’d love your suggestions.
