My cam pan worked perfect a few months ago but ever since they released cam plus it’s gone wacky. I have to set a starting point by turning off motion tracking and selecting position and then turning motion track back on… Now when i do this the camera will reset to that position any time it wants. Most of the time it ignores any motion that goes by and just resets. I’ve tried to make it track me and make the camera turn all the way around but most of the time it will move once and then just reset even though it clearly tracks my motion going behind it.
Ive tried everything. Original app. Beta app. Every firmware update. Resetting. Resetting position. Turning off and on all settings. Yes all settings. I know for a fact the camera can continue spinning that way because i can manually do it on the app. Thats another issue tho. If i want to manually rotate the camera I have to turn off motion tracking otherwise the camera will fight with me to reset its position every second and every rotation. So i cant do a quick rotate around the area without turning off motion tracking. This wasnt the case months ago. Before i was able to pan the camera manually with motion tracking and it would reset after a good amount of time. Now it just doesnt care about the motion revolving the camera it mainly focuses itself in that one position. Basically making this camera a v2.
I do not want to use pan settings as i do want my default to be pointing at my front door… What i don’t want is it to reset after literally a second. I want it to make sure it detects my motion. Im trying to see how this works out for person detection and my lights with alexa but this makes it a bad choice when the camera wont motion detect correctly.
