I noticed that camera is not recording sometimes for last month or so.  I thought it might be weather related so I cranked up the sensitivity but that didn’t help. Any other things i can try to resolve this?

What is the motion sensitivity in your modes and rules? Are you using the schedule? Have you seen the base LEDs showing a loss of connection to the router or servers?

@jguerdat sensitivity is set to 90%.

 

Sorry I should have explained this better. It records when the motion is in some area of the view but not when the motion is in another part of view.  I have set up the view using rectangle to cover pretty much everything camera sees.

Hi @stribor45

 

It sounds like you are using activity zones. Have you tried to delete & recreate the zone over the web portal?
