I use ST to change the sensitivity of my Driveway Camera based on the position of the sun during the day. I have found that 4 is the lowest I can go in order for the camera to start recording appropriately. If I go 3 then then I usually just get the tail end of the action.
Looking at the position of my Driveway Camera, even though I can clearly see the street, most cars, with a setting of 4, are ignored during the day unless they are going slow. Still, there seems to be an obvious issue with the sensitivity that could be better addressed with masking just like Ring Pro does.
7 seems to work well for Night but still picks up slow moving cars or people walking too close to the driveway. Anything higher than it picks up everything. Anything lower then it doesn’t start recording in enough time. This is too big of a jump.
Saying all of that, I am not experiencing a massive amount of false motions. Almost always, “something”, that is clearly visible is triggering my motion events.
These cameras are always on but based on when the doors were open last, determines the video lengths and re-trigger times.
Ring Pro works perfect for motion. There must be a buffer because the recording start right before the motion event. Not a fair comparison because the Ring Pro is hardwired…
