V3 Event Duration Display VS actual Video Time

So I was testing the notification speeds of the V3 and Doorbell since the V3 received new FW.
To set this up:

  • Dorrbell is on CamPlus but is only set to notify on All Motion and Not AI
  • V3 Driveway Cam is also set on CamPlus but set to Notify on AI and not All Motion

V3 Issue:

  • I see the Events for the V3 Cam. One shows 5 minute recording but when I play the event, it is only 13 seconds. - It was 5 minutes as I was there testing. Because it was 13 second review, It did not alert on a person when it should have
  • Another 5 minute recording is only showing 49 seconds.
  • Another Driveway recording says 27 seconds but when I play the event, it shows 25 seconds.
    Seems the actual recording time is not what is saved in the events.
  • I checked other V3 camera’s and see that most of the have a 2 second difference unless it is a long recording.

V2 Issue

  • I have a video which is 2 minutes and 22 seconds. When I play it, it shows 38 seconds.
  • The sub 1 minute video is seems to be ok

Doorbell

  • Does not exibit the same thing - but I only have video < 1 minte.

So I firmly believe this is a bug which seems to be adding to the perceived delayed notifications or missed events. Is anyone else experiencing this?

I have not noticed or tested this yet, and I doubt I will have time to test it today (Monday afternoon/evening/night is my most busy time of the week business-wise), but if you get a chance, will you check and see if any of the above performs differently while the camera is in night-vision mode? I have had some cameras in the past with similar issues (event time mismatches) that change and function completely correctly when night vision is active at night.

Will do the test.

Had another video on my driveway early this morning. Video Length is 4 minutes 50 seconds. When I play the event, the play time is only 54 seconds. See Picture below:

Here is the Event on the Event tab: Driveway Cam 4m 50s

Here is the Event playback page: 54s playback only. Same Video as on the event page
