Arlo has recently started detecting vehicles and animals.  I'm not sure if this is new, or just new to me somehow.  But, let me tell you what - Arlo seems to think that all black people are "animals," as well as those viewed only from behind (walking away from the camera).  Is this a software learning curve, or what?

My (white) wife has been detected as an animal several times in the past. Whether she really is I'll leave to the reader's imagination. 🙂

 

Donate the videos so the team can use the data to correct the detection algorithms.

thanks for the suggestion, until now I hadn't noticed the "donate" button.  Will do.

I haven't seen the question mark show up in my notifications or videos in quite some time so that I could let Arlo that the identification was wrong. Is that feature still around?

Occasionally. Donating gets around that.
