My motion detection continually resets itself back to 80%. I go in weekly to setttings and change it to 100% and save it. I go back in to the settings to make sure it is saved at 100% which it is. A week or so later I'll go back in and it reverted back to 80%. It's not holding the 100% setting. Any ideas how to stop this from happening?

Yes - stop using the Motion Detection Test as if it were a setting - it's a test. Make the changes in your modes and rules and be sure to save.

Thank you for your reply. I will try to set up modes and hopefully it will work. I appreciate your response.

Well what's the suggestion for a camera that I set on 15% sensitivity and keeps reverting to 80% and burning through the battery in a week? And no I don't put it test mode. I set the rules and modes and save properly.

Try creaating and using a new custom mode to see if that helps.
