Figured it out. I used the new beta app on my iPhone and it saved fine. Appears to be an issue with a production app version that doesn’t support the beta pan firmware.
Btw- a strobe light, bright light, tv simulator, etc flashing as a light source, and using a mirror to reflect IR back into the camera, effectively nixes any type of human tracking. The camera bounces all around and if you move slowly enough, you can compromise it’s motion tracking.
The pan rotates so much that it leaves out the real threat, a person. I recommend adding pan rotation limits, the ability to exclude certain areas, identify and ignore stantionary static light sources, and work oh human body Classification/identification.
Hell if I blink all my hue lights in my kitchen and living room and leave a led tv simulator flashing- Pan spends all its time rotating like its following a png pong ball match.
I can walk right up to it and effectively disable it by putting a mirror in front of it and causing IR reflection and feedback loop. The alerts do not include me or if they do it’s for half a second. A determined attacker would make himself difficult to identify. Then again there would have to be a serous light show, but if it’s a 2nd home you’re monitoring, who would notice?
Otherwise fantastic product and I can’t wait for more features to come, esp 2 factor! I intend to purchase another pan and keep my cam v2 as backup.
