I’ve always had motion detection enabled as well as person/vehicle detection and now just person since it’s public release.
Viewing my events, I rarely see people events and 99% motion events such as leaves moving and the shadow from our flag. This makes person detection basically pointless since the cool down period between recordings most likely always misses the opportunity for person recording.
If a cloud event could be separated from a motion detection on our memory cards, this would provide more control with potentially better data in the event page.
As of now, I’ve disabled motion detection, set continuous recording to the memory card and hope to see only people detection in the events tab. If I need to review a longer clip, I know what time to pinpoint in playback. Will have to see if this theory works.
Edit: based on the first 2 replies, as they pointed out motion detection is in fact a prerequisite, so an unsuccessful experiment.
All I really care about is person and vehicle detection for obvious reasons. Why was vehicle detection removed from the beta and did not make it to the public release? It was really useful!
It’s an overwhelming uphill battle to efficiently find events in continuous recording. Motion detection and recording on event helps only a small percentage unless we live in a wind and shadow free environment, because the tools are not available to precisely choose which parts of the FOV are monitored and instead we can only crop.
I should have prefaced that I’m using this camera on my porch viewing the front yard and driveway. Maybe I’m answering my own inquiry here in that the camera is designed for indoor which does not have the inherent challenges of an outdoor camera.
Thoughts, suggestion, or even new features or products to come to be able to continue managing all of our cams from the same app rather than purchasing a dedicated outdoor can from another brand.
