First off… I’ve had my Blink camera for a week and am quite impressed. There is a lot of value here for the price. I picked it up to discourage porch thieves, unfortunately a recent trend in our neighborhood.
I am trying to set the Activity Zone so it triggers when someone walks on our porch, but does not trigger for people walking down the sidewalk or driving by. Sensitivity is set to 5. Pictures say everything, so I am including my current Activity Zone, followed by 8 images taken from the first frame of a set of triggered videos. In each of these, the video was triggered by a person or car within the Grey Zone.
Most (but not all) of these false triggers happened in the afternoon when the front porch is bathed in sunlight. Most (but not all) also seem to happen when someone enters from the right, well within the Grey Zone.
Perhaps I don’t really understand how Activity Zones work. It is baffling to me that any of these scenes triggered the camera. Any thoughts?
And here are the photos…
