Have had my 4 EufyCam cameras install for about 1 1/2 months, no issues (false alarms). Cameras were not changed from the settings when pulled out of the box in terms of motion sensitivity (86), firmware is up to date.
Purchased EufyCam2 system and an addon because things were working well. Again, not changed from the settings when pulled out of the box in terms of motion sensitivity (5), firmware is up to date.
The last 4 days have been windy and I am getting false alarms ALL DAY LONG, so much so that I just turn the cameras off. All I see in the videos are the bushes moving. I was under the impression that the PIR sensor required “heat”, so bushes should not be settings off the cameras.
I know I can turn it only human notifications but wouldn’t that just reduce the alarms, but the camera would still be going off (draining the battery)? My feeling is get the false alarms down to a minimum before setting notification to only human.
I also some times see cars in the background. My understanding is that the PIR distance is 30 feet, these cars range from 60 to 200 feet. Am I wrong in this understanding?
Any input is greatly welcome.
