Re: Clever dog motion detection

I've got three of these. They mostly work and for the price it's hard to complain. The motion detection seems pretty much OK though I'm not sure it works consistently. My biggest issue is regularly losing connectivity and one of the cameras seems to keep forgetting that it has a memory card installed. The biggest potential issue is that they are totally dependent on the App being maintained, and that's never guaranteed. I've just discovered that the P2P function on my Sentient CCTV cameras is no longer being supported, and I fear this will become more and more of an issue as hardware increasingly relies on software for functionality As I said though - for £20!

Re: Clever dog motion detection

I've got all mine set to "home" with no alerts, so I can't really comment on false alarms. However when I do look back on what triggers the cameras it seems to need a human-sized object to get a reaction. At night for example there will be nothing after we shut the cat in the kitchen until someone opens up again in the morning. The cat obviously moves around during the night but that never triggers the camera to record. I can imagine it would get really annoying if you were getting alerts every time a speck of dust floated by!

Re: Clever dog motion detection

Ironic that these cameras are branded Clever Dog but don't capture dogs or pets. All jokes aside, depending on the model, you might capture with more precision but I have installed a set of these for someone and even at the highest level of motion detection sensitivity, it would sometimes fail to trigger in low light with a distant body in the frame. Audio is clear enough, motion detection could work a little better in low light

That's interesting. The audio on my cameras is awful. There's a constant heavy crackle and any speech is indecipherable. Video quality is really very good though all things considered. In terms of motion sensitivity there does seem to be a lag between the triggering event and the recording starting. I can usually see evidence that someone has entered the room but not the moment at which it happened. A very speedy smash and grab burglar might just about get away with it! Odd that the OP seems to be complaining of too many alerts - possibly it is this delay that accounts for nothing being apparent though that then leads to the question of what is causing them since we seem to agree a sizeable moving object is required.
