I have 4 arlo ultras. I'm finding that I'm missing events that should  have triggered the motion activation.

 

I am looking at the motion detection sensitivity settings under the "device utilities, motion detection test"

 

I'm assuming that the 100% is the most sensitive (small object trigger motion) and 1% is the least sensitive (only large objects trigger motion).

 

Is this accurate?

 

I have one about 50 feet in the air and it only recorded 1 event, even though I know that multiple vehicles came and went through the night.

Model: VMC5040 | Arlo Ultra Wire-Free Camera

The percent is right but you’re looking in the wrong place to change sense levels...

 

you must edit the mode that you are arming the cameras with, it is under motion detected

 

 

as a PS

the camera may be to high, the pir detection may not have that range for people...

more like 25+Ft for people

great! thanks. I will try this out.

 

This menu also had to the option to stop getting notifications every time they detect motion, as that was getting a little annoying.

this did work. I've come to the conclusion that I have it too high - vehicles trigger and people don't - it is at 32 feet. Looking into Continuous Video Recording.
