Motion Detect - Light Switch Detection



Current sensitivity I believe is just a percentage of pixel changes.
Above that number, a motion alert is triggered.
I suggest a max threshold, where if a motion alert is triggered, but above another percentage of pixel changes, then it’s considered a flicking on/off of a light switch, which then suppresses the alert action.

Also having debug info on the saved video will also help users fine tune the correct sensitivity. (ie actual percentage of pixel changed that caused the motion alert)


“Ignore gross Light changes”

I’ve led a number of folks to buy Wyze cams. But the common complaint is that when their connected lights turn off or on, they get a Wyze alert. When 60 or 70% of the pixels all report change, it’s likely a lighting change.
Add a lighting change detect threshold slider and a toggle for enable/disable and I’ll bet you will make a lot of people happy.
Sensitivity is the minimum that has to change to trigger. Lighting detection is a ceiling, where anything over that is ignored.


This would probably help with lightning too.
