Check your device's installation if it is battery-powered.
(a) Make sure the camera is installed at 7-10 ft (2-3 m) and adjust the angle to about 15°. Then the motion can be triggered as designed.
(b) Straighten the camera to get the best performance.
(c) Do not install the camera behind materials like glass, as it has a negative effect on motion detection.
(d) Do not install the camera in a place near events where hot air blows frequently. The camera may interpret it as activity.
(e) Make sure the live view of the camera can capture the whole person.
(f) The camera is not sensitive to the object towards it. Install the camera in the corner so the movement can go across the detection zones and trigger the motion detection.
If you have set Activity Zones, the motions will be filtered outside of the zones. Please go to Camera Settings – Smart Detection - Activity Zone and remove unnecessary zones.
Person detection at night or in low light does not perform as well as it operates in the daytime. If you want to capture more motions, please go to Camera Settings – Smart Detection, and make sure all the detection types have been enabled.
For battery-powered devices, the detection range of the Motion Sensitivity or Radar Sensitivity is an estimated value. It could vary depending on the size and temperature of objects, the temperature and other aspects of the environment. Please go to Camera Settings – Smart Detection. Increase the motion sensitivity to extend the motion detection range to meet your needs.
For battery-powered devices, the camera may have limited the motion detection frequency and video length to save power. Thus, the camera will not detect any motion during the interval. In Battery Saving mode, the trigger interval between two videos is 60 seconds, and the max video length is 20 seconds. You can reduce the trigger interval and customize the max video length in Customized mode. Go to Camera Settings – Power Management. Switch power mode to Customized and change its Video Length and Trigger Interval.
We will keep updating our devices to improve their performance and user experience. So please go to Camera Settings – About Device - Firmware Update, and update the device to the latest firmware.
