No, it isn’t relevant, but if you believe it to be so, continue to do so, but others need the opportunity to read accurate information. It is spurious, and misleading, to blame it on wake up, and causes people to evade searching for the correct solution to their issues, whatever that may be.
“Oh, nothing I can do then, they take so long to wake up. That’s battery powered stuff for you, I suppose.”
Motion detection circuitry is always on, in a Blink camera, obviously. Pretty much everything else is not. PIR detection is ultra quick, if it is going to do it at all. Check out security lights for evidence of that. If it does it, it will be almost instant and it then triggers the rest of the camera to wake up, which is nowhere near as quick, but still very quick, in a couple of tenths of a second.
It is not by accident that my camera works so perfectly regularly at my front door. As the owner and installer, and tester, when it comes to Blink, I did my homework, tested thoroughly and moved it and adjusted until it worked flawlessly.
If someone chooses to point it down an alley, where the subject walks towards the camera, or expects it to operate at a range of 100 feet from the subject, reliably, or if they have not ensured they have reliable WiFi, or any of a whole host of other possible causes, which can all be addressed, then expect poor results.
But, do not give up on trying to get fast triggers, because of the implication that it is ‘impossible with any battery powered camera, including Blink’, which is simply not true. Blink is super fast.
You refer to the distance in my videos. How has this anything to do with wake up time, which you listed first, and started to describe how it affected all battery cameras. Heck, it doesn’t even affect Blink cameras.
Expect an early trigger from someone heading right at your camera, good luck, you didn’t read the instructions, or anything on this forum. Angle it slightly, you get a good reliable trigger, and then the camera can do its thing waking up, which it will do very quickly.
Every thing else in your first post may well be correct, that there are better cameras out there, I couldn’t say, other than a couple of observations, for example, I doubt it for battery powered, which is essential to me. Pre roll, well obviously that can never work on any battery powered camera. They have to be recording all the time, even if they quickly discard it. 1080, maybe an issue, but it’s good enough for me.
