I have a motion sensor light over my garage door that has a IR triggered motion sensor. For 5 days I didn’t have my camera plugged in, (which I have mounted directly over the light). For those 5 days the light didn’t come on unless a physical object moved in front of it. I plugged the camera back in and every few minutes or whenever the light was ready it would turn on. This happened all night, on off, on off, back and forth.
I know its the camera thats causing this because before the 5 days it was doing this, so i removed the camera for a test period. This is the best place to put a camera at my house and i like the motion lights so i’d like to keep them.
I think it has something to do with the IR or something the camera puts out that the light is tripping on. Some facts
Motion sensor light is very basic and does not respond to sound. The sensor part looks over the driveway and the camera does the same. I tried turning night vision off, and motion capture off. I do have it set to record continuously to a installed sd card. Nothing seems to work.
More testing: When the lights first came on i waited for them to go off and then opened the app, as soon as the camera connected the lights went on. I don’t understand how the camera operates, but I assume that its broadcasting IR and the IR receiver on the motion light is picking that up.
Any help would be great. Thanks.
