So your saying that after the switch from Night or Day mode, then someone walks in front of the camera, and if motion detect is enabled and configured, that the camera will not detect this motion?

This is still a problem.  Can't believe it hasn't been addressed in any FW updates?

It is very annoying and I just have to remember if I get an alert of motion / sound detection around sunrise, sunset or on a cloudy day I try to ignore it - unless there is a REAL trigger at that time!

I've never seen such a fix. 

Anyways - if someone was to turn on my lights the camera would switch to daylight and not pick up the motion detection which is real!
Same with turning the lights off!

No.

I am proving that if there is no motion detection as the O.P. would like when there is day/night mode switching, there would be no event in the case I laid out.  ::)

The firmware should be able to distinguish between a gradual increase/decrease in ambient light which crosses the filter threshold versus an abrupt change in background lighting that would occur due to a light turning on or off.  I agree that if it is an abrupt change with lights turning on/off you would want to know, not necessarily because it is an intruder but maybe due to energy conservation issues.  When the filter threshold is very gradually crossed due to ambient lighting changes, the camera should disable the motion detection for about a half second, disable motion detection, switch the filter, then re-enable motion detection.  Any real motion would still be detected before or after the filter switch based on the motion detection parameters that are in place.

Something you might want to share with D-Link support.
