Recently, a package was left at my door. Between the 5 minute alert cool down and the recorded 1 minute segments in Record on Event I was unable to determine when it was left and who left it.
Continuous Recording may have been helpful providing the SD card wasn’t ‘eaten’ or the video recorded over. Had it been something serious, poring over hours of video could be helpful, but in this case the effort is not worth it.
I may have to rethink my security strategy and add extra cameras to help capture and isolate events. An additional camera at the door with a small detection zone might be the solution assuming a fly doesn’t trigger the alert and the activity isn’t within the 5 minute window.
Just some food for thought for anyone else using indoor cameras for outside security.
Maybe 2 cameras side by side with different detection zones and sensitivities is a solution.
Anyone one make a small cable to daisy chain two cameras side by side?
