Snow triggers motion detection


#1

I have two wyze cam set up outdoors. One outside of my garage, one outside of front door. When it snows, the snow flake constantly triggers motion detection, no matter how low the sensitivity I set, so I have to turn off motion detection when it snow.
Could Wyze develop a separate outdoor motion detection setting to eliminate false alert caused by snow, bugs etc.?

Thanks!

Wyze is currently developing an outdoor camera that will use passive IR motion sensing instead of pixel based sensing as is done in the current versions. You can read more about and vote for it here:

This is the downside of using an indoor camera outside. I’m guilty myself with all of mine being outdoors. I am patiently waiting for the new release of the software that will allow me to turn off the onboard IR lights and rely on a separate IR source for each camera. If I’m right, and that is yet to be determined, the onboard IR lights make the snowflakes (insects down here) really bright and really big since they are right in front of the camera and having a light source several feet away will minimize that effect. Plus there are many other benefits of having enhanced IR lighting.
