Going away triggers better than moving towards.

Postby longedge » Wed Mar 27, 2019 10:37 am

I've noted both with my IP2M-841B and also the cameras attached to my NVR (another make) that movement away from the camera triggers motion detection much more reliably than when people are approaching. Has anyone esle found the same, is there a reason for this? I should add that I've experimented with sensitivity settings throughout the range.
Using IP2M-841B (firmware 2.520.AC00.18.R).

Please send a photo of the camera's view, there could be a few things that could cause this issue. In my findings, I found it could be how the camera is mounted ( what angle it is looking at the target) that would cause this issue.

Send a photo so I can further examine it for you.

Many thanks for the offer - p.m. sent.

p.s. I haven't answered the question. The camera is inside a bedroom window looking down across my driveway at an angle I would guess at about 45°.
