Due to a previous rats infestation, I have set up three EufyCam 2 cameras in my loft space to keep an eye on rats. I have set the camera mode to “Customize Recording”, changed the motion detection type to “All Motions”, and set the detection sensitivity to the maximum value.
Yesterday morning I heard a scratching noise from the loft space, which from my experience indicates rat activities. The noise came from a location that is under the surveillance from one of the cameras. However, when I opened the eufy security app and went through the surveillance records, there was no recording from the camera. It appears that the rat motion did not trigger a recording.
I have tested all three cameras and they worked fine at detecting motions of large objects (e.g. humans). However, I am not sure whether their recordings can be triggered by motions of smaller objects. I have placed the cameras at appropriate locations so that a rat would at least cover 80 x 50 pixels in a 1080p video. I want to know if an object of this size is large enough to trigger the motion detection of EufyCam 2? Is there a threshold for the object size so that its motion can be detected? Thanks in advance.
