Hi everyone

 

Since summer 2018 firmware detection and detection range have been very poor.

This on my 1½ year old Pro cams and new Pro2 cams.

Everything is up to date. FW / SW.

I've reset everythins sevaral times, changed plans and programming and so forth...

I've been everyware around settings, software ect.

 

I want the old detecion capabilities back.

Almost every animal is gone from our garden, foxes, cats and other night animals.

Also there seems to be very little activity in the neighborhood since may / june 2018...

Cars, bikes and pedestrians is passing by appr. 8 to meters from the farthest cam...

 

Is there something I'm missing?

Is this it due legal regulations or something else?

 

Greetings from DK

Alone in the world since may / june 2018...

Also, the time from detecting to filming seems to be delayed, dispite fibernet and top-shelf installations.

I have with that too. A lot...

 

I think that the range and agressive have been reduced in the firmware.

Any thoughts on that anyone?

There have been other reports of this by afew folks overall but my detection range remains the same, with people being detected out to ~25 feet.
