Looking for assistance and/or advice in getting my outdoor camera to record motion events and send notifications.
I have an outdoor camera located about 35 feet from a sidewalk that I would like to detect motion on and send a notification. This outdoor camera does not detect people walking on the sidewalk.
I watched the video Wyze posted in this forum on outdoor cam motion sensing and notifications.
These settings are enabled on my outdoor camera:
- Event recording: detects motion enabled
- Notifications enabled: motion events and low battery
- Detection settings: distance set to Far (100), sensitivity set to high (100), detection zone on, only sidewalk areas enabled
What I find strange is that while watching the live video from the outdoor camera and I see someone walk by, I will receive a notification and be able to view the recorded event.
I have never had any issue watching live video. The app connects to the camera every time.
How do I know that someone walked by and I didn’t get notified? I have a v3 camera that also captures the sidewalk from a different angle.
This video from the v3 camera did not result in an event capture on the outdoor camera:
Seems simple enough that the outdoor camera should sense the motion, record the event, and send me a notification. But it doesn’t, unless I happen to be watching the live video.
