Getting of the troll subject from yesterday and now today giving you some real info and feedback…
You can not have a camera view of a door, sidewalk/driveway and street in the same view from one single camera. It does not work. This is at the top of the list for bad setups due to camera position that I keep reading about. The Blink camera is not that smart. There is no setting for sensitivity and activity zones that works together to differentiate between a human, a vehicle, an animal, and then the nuisance pain in butt things like moving foliage, shadows, and insects.
When you have all those things, or even some of those things in the same camera view, you will get all kinds of false readings. You have to ask yourself, what am I really trying to detect. And what are the true design capabilities of the camera.
Blink was created about 3 years ago. This was engineered for detecting, recording, alerting, and then showing you on a mobile device…porch pirates. It works great for that. It wasn’t meant for live capturing of porch pirate so you can run to door and say hey you SOB, put my package down and get the heck off my porch. Blink PIR sensor (motion detector) sure as heck wasn’t meant to see and differentiate all those things in your current camera field of view. it’s supposed to look at one small area only and detect one shape and size- humans. That’s it, that’s all the smarter Blink is.
No go remount the camera so it is positioned the way Blink suggests to mount it for optimal performance. Up high, looking at door/porch, and human is moving perpendicular to camera rather than parallel with camera. For porch pirate detection, Blink works great. For looking from porch/door, down sidewalk/driveway, and then into street, Blink sucks.
