Motion Detection
« on: January 04, 2012, 02:56:20 PM »

Hey all,

I'm trying to set up my new camera and I've ran into a few issues....

I have my camera pointing out a window (I don't know if this makes a difference or not) and every so often (seems to be random) the image flickers, I think the camera is adjusting the brightness or white balance or something. But when the image flickers/adjusts the motion detection triggers and it sends me an email. I'm trying to work down the sensitivity until it doesn't pick up on that, but I don't know if it will work out.

Also, I've set up the snapshot to trigger on motion detection, and to send 6 pictures. However it sends the 6 images in 6 separate emails! Sure does flood my inbox! I thought I read in the firmware request post that this was fixed? I believe I have the most updated version, but I could be mistaken...Any pointers or suggestions? or is this just how it is?

Other than that stuff, we are fairly happy with the camera...seems to work pretty well!

Nebriv.

That could be sun or a shadow it's picking up. Try lowering the motion detection to 80 percent and try it.

I've lowered my motion detection all the way down to like 45% and it still didn't help, haha...

I can see the video of it happening, it's just a quick flicker almost...like it's adjusting the brightness or something...I think I've got everything set to...manual, I think.

I have my motion detection set all the way down to 10 in a room with lots of light variation during the day.  At 10 it still records any true motion that occurs.
