Reolink and Home Assistant

Hey! So I have a Reolink 510A connected to my router. And in my Home Assistant I use the fwestenberg Reolink integration.
And well everything works fine. I get the feed into HA. But I just cant get the person movement to report to my HA reliable.
As you can see in the picture here the camera actually DO report movement... sometimes... dont know really know when and why it just do it sometimes and not ALL movements.
I havent really changed any settings in the integration. I did try lower the "motion state update" to 2.. but didnt really make any diffrent.
So I wouldnt say the motion detection isnt working because it do seem to send notices of movement.. just not everyone
Any workaround this problem?

I have had also issues with reolink_dev. I went away from it and I'm using the generic camera integration for the video stream and the HA rest api for the alarms. This works great. See here how to do this: https://community.home-assistant.io/t/reolink-nvr-to-home-assistant-issue/430491
(tteck's answer). He is using a NVR though. You should also be able to do the same using your camera directly.

I've just checked. Using the cam directly this should work for motion detection. You might want to try http instead of https.
and this for smart detection
Then you need to extract the appropriate fields fro the json reply like shown here

Would be nice if Reolink devs would work with Home Assistant devs to get this fixed properly as I also have spotty notifications when using that integration.
