when I initially set up the camera sensitivity, i set it about to 90% and it was great. it picked up cars passing on the road out front too.  then we had a day of heavy winds and it kept going off so I put it back to 80%.  Now that winds have subsided i have set back to 90% but never triggers with trucks passing now.  I have pushed it up to 95% and still no luck.  one thing that is different from start to now is it is much cooler.  

could the cooler weather affect this or something else?

Maybe cooler weather but also firmware updates and possible slight repositioning of the camera could explain this.

spelts,

 

How far away is the motion you are trying to detect? Positioning for motion detection outside the range in which Arlo Pro is designed to pick up may produce inconsistent results as you describe above.

 

The best area for motion detection is between 5 and 20 feet from the camera position. For more information on this, see here: How do I position my Arlo Wire-Free or Arlo Pro Wire-Free camera?
