I've been tinkering with the motion-trigger-settings on my newly purchased 942L to the
point where I was ready to bring it back to the store, but finally I think I found a pattern.

Maybe it's just me, in which case I need to dig deeper, but I've set up the camera in my driveway
and with pretty much the whole FoV selected as a sensing area and it was virtually impossible to
get the camera to detect motion.
However, with a single line along the driveway it detect the slightest motion that moves in/across that
line, all other settings being the same, so to me it seems that somehow the surface area of the
"detection zone" messes with the overall sensitivity.

Now they are months that I try to change settings, but I believe that the combination of PIR sensor with that of movement creates problems to the management software. Besides having many false movements at times, but often changing settings I continued interceptions. I think bring it on back.
Sorry for my english.

Kind of out dated for this thread. Hope it helps future users.
