I have the same exact floating objects. I cleaned shelves, furniture, floors really good in the one room and tested it at night. Big improvement! Theyre definitely microscopic dust particles, we all have them because homes are not air tight, unless you live in a glass bubble.

We have indoor and outdoor orbs they have rectangle shapes and go around the house and into th house  and your out there telling us they are dust

The fact that objects with rectangular shapes passing thru walls ,doesn't  necessarily mean ghosts but maybe energy of what once were living life forms . But don't say dust , we have observed these shapes for months the exact same shapes hanging out

Hello 

I recently installed security cameras at my main entrance and deck. The main entrance camera caught light objects as described in previous posts yesterday. This was similar to the light objects that were captured three weeks back in my backyard. They look like spider string. But I had a spider caught on camera too and I was able to see it as a spider. But these light objects caught were round hazy and moving randomly.  It was as though someone was trying to play with flashlights but the camera did not capture any human in the vicinity.  Some of my friends say its dust, some of them say its insects. It remains a mystery.  It seems as though these cameras are capable of catching some particles that cannot be seen with the naked eye ... That's all I can deduce...But I must say its strange...

You are completely right these are NOT dust particles. I have them too and I have never seen anything like them. Please contact me at dawnbacon98@gmail.com.

I think it was tiny bird down from a nest that was near a window close to the camera. What I was seeing did sail through the air like a feather of sorts caught in a current that knew where it was going because currents usually follow their own path. It is gone now.

I don't have a Netgear camera or anything, but this has been happening to me too. I set the camera up on the second floor of my house and had nothing ever happen. When I put the camera downstairs in my basement, I keep catching these odd balls of light. I'm not sure what they are, since I haven't seen them on my second floor. I don't have any fans or anything running, and all the doors are sealed tight. Our heating doesn't use fans, and there is no air conditioning in my basement.

Dust. There's always air circulation even without fans.

But what I found odd though was that I couldn't see any on the second floor.

Agree. That's dust

I too have very bizzare behaving "dust particles" captured on my footage. I had hoped to see the video you uploaded but it must have been removed. 😞

The best way to resolve this is to keep the lights off, then slap or beat your sofa in a fit of rage. Watch the entire community of angry orbs come out to voice their opionion 🙂

The videos should still be there, but I will look into it.

I have no doubt that the white orbs are past loved ones watching over my mom. They mostly happen in one room. They are big. Not even close to dust particles! Shaking my head at that answer! Yep, some come from outside right through the wall.

I have my status LED lights turned "off" in the App.  I have night vision "off".  At night one of the cameras looking outside through the glass turns on not the blue LED, but a white light turns on and reflects off the glass triggering false motion events.  Any suggestions?

Its not actually white but appears so with night vision, which is in black and white. Even though you've turned off night vision, try toggling it again. If there's a Save opportunity, do so at each step. If that doesn't help, try opening and closing the battery door and power cycle the base. If it still doesn't help, remove the camera from Setting, My Devices and resync.

Good thoughts.  Will try unplugging the camera as it is a wired Arlo Q.  Thanks!

Yi home camera with night vision. 

I have searched online and found some others that have seen similar but they are not this big. Comparing them to other objects in the room they are about the size of a tennis ball or maybe a bit larger. it sometimes comes from a different direction. It appears out of nowhere. This one seems to be comming out of the wall.

They appear large because they're close to the camera. A small object that's further away would be difficult to see due to the limited IR reflection as well as size.

Just confirmed the phenomena scientifically with a "shaking pillow" experiment: this is dust!

There was a birdnest outside the window and some down got through a crack somehow and that is what it was. Yeah dust is what it is.
