How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
Hello,I bought the Argus Eco to record movement in the front yard. The camera is mounted under the roof in the 3rd floor (0-3). I have to use privacy masking to not get any pictures from the neighbours and bypa*serrs. Unfortunately there is a road and quite a few cars are pa*sing (6000 the day?)If I set the sensitivity to a a high level, that human movement is recorded, the recording starts as well when a car pa*ses.I hoped that only recordings would be saved when a change in the visible part of the mask is recognized.I tried to mask the sensor with tape to no avail, because it's PIR and not a usual movement sensor.I guess, that the camera is a nice mock-up now or is there a solution?Do other models solve the issue?Is PIR working in summer? The hot summers and human temperature are almost the same. How will that work? Kind regards,Markus
If I'm not mistaken, the sensitivity also controls how far out it can detect. If you lower the sensitivity it will likely restrict it from reaching the road. Also, is it possible to position the camera so it is looking more at the area of interest and something static like a structure, rather than the road?
Sorry for causing the inconvenience. The privacy mask is to mask some areas, and the pir is still working. Here is the working principle, refer to the article: https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004357254-What-is-PIR-Motion-Sensor.As for the working temperature, please refer to https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/900000784286-What-s-the-Operating-Temperature-and-Humidity-of-Reolink-Battery-powered-Cameras.Here are some installation tips, refer to https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/360006379253-Installation-Tips-for-Reolink-Battery-Powered-Cameras.You may please report this issue to the support team: email@example.com?
