My cameras never pick up any of the thousand of birds here. WHY? I have to manual record almost everything, makes a securtiy camera kinda irrelevant, dont ya think?


my motion detection is already set to the most sensitive it can be.


mine NEVER records when it is supposed to

2 things:


1) Birds tend to be much smaller than people so detection is harder with so much less IR being available to be detected.


2) Motion sensitivity has to be set in your modes and rules, not via the motion test, which is just a test to get a setting for your rules.

toold you I have set it to as sensitive as it gets. And for the last time, I am not using an Arlo Pro, using the old school 3030.
