Smart Notifications - I Am Receiving Motion Alerts When "People" Only Is On
I read all the posts here for SMart Notifications and followed every step to reset cameras, base station etc but problem is not solved.
I signed up for the trial of Smart Notifications and would like to continue to the paid subscription but only if this works.
To test the Smart Notifications I EXCLUDE "persons" and walk in front of the cameras (x2). Both send me notifications that detected motion. And message says "A person was detected" even though the option for PERSON is NOT selected.
I get some quicks once and a while and turning the notification off and back on helps. Since it did label you a person it is detecting you properly. But since you want to not get person try turning it on then off.
I have provided an article with further information regarding camera positioning for optimal performance. It sounds like the cameras may be either too far and/or at a suboptimal angle to pick up motion. You may also want to try and adjust the sensitivity within your modes for the desired camera(s).
The Arlo videos and instructions point out the shared area of the viewing angle that are supposed to help with not receiving alerts when there is movement on a street in the distance. There's no way these cameras could sense that! I'm in the country and don't have to worry about that anyway.
I've read something about 25 ft, who has a house that is only 25ft from the road? The app and settings make us very comfortable with what we are setting but it doesn't seem to work!
My camera does the same picking up motion . After carefully taking a second and third glance , I found that the camera was picking up movements made by the wind but there was more . In the corner of the pic was several people walking , a bird ,a wasp , a flag , a tent and a fast cat . My cameras seem to be doing a Great job . The camera knows what it is seeing and we could too if only we look closer .
