Where to install the 360° Reolink Fisheye? Here are recommended Positions
I just replaced a Argus 2 PT 4k 2.4 with the 5GB version.The sensitivity setting seem the same but it will only pickup and record objects within about 10-15 feet.Suggestions? I even turned up the sensitivity settings to 100.Thanks
@user_585783633887262_585783633887262 The WIFI frequency band has nothing to do with the detection range. This merely depends on the PIR and its settings. As I stated in a previous reply, walking across the detection area of a PIR detector results in a rapid detection because multiple sectors are crossed quickly triggering the detector. Walking towards the sensing area of a PIR detector may result in later detection as it is possible to walk towards the PIR sectors without crossing them (which is required for detection). I think the max detection range of the PIR installed on the Argus 2 PT is about 33 feet when the sensitivity is set between 85 and 100.
@joseph-chircop_497308027822318 Thanks for the reply but I'm asking this because I purchased the "upgraded" (if you want to call it that) of the Argus PT 2K that works on 5GH WiFi also.....not saying that WiFi has anything to do with it....I have noticed that one my regular Argus PT 2k was missing a lot of activity and it seemed like after I raised the camera up, it then started picking up objects again. I have raised the newer version camera to see if that makes a difference as well....By the way....can you tell me what the newest FW is for the Argus 2 PT 4k 2.4/5 Wifi? Just wonding if my new one may have old firmware (v22.214.171.1245_22061301) and I may need to put in a ticket to request an update....
@user_585783633887262_585783633887262 Finding the correct optimal position for PIR cameras is absolutely critical. Argus 2 PT is not included in the download center as there may be different variants. So I suggest you to email Reolink support and quote your HW. You shall get a reply within two days.
