So… I might as well tell my story here on my driveway cam. The one that took a year to figure out. Might explain things. Here is why I bought the cams in the first place. I just wanted to know when my “toys” arrived. This is the original cam view and location ( and the same cam I’m using today )
It would miss this huge truck 2 out of 3 times. How is that possible I would ask??? A package at my door and the camera would miss the truck going up my drive… and then again going down my drive. Set to all motion how could it possibly miss this giant view filling truck again and again??? It sure had no problem picking up leaves or weeds moving or tiny bunnies. I wanted to return this junk at the time… but I also wanted to know why.
A year later I figured these stupid cameras out! That same camera never misses. ( complete disclosure: leaving my drive it will miss almost every time… but that’s totally ok and by design )
I started making a YouTube video to explain what I learned over that 1 year project. “ understanding motion detection”. The video is in the can… I just need to put it together. ( why did the camera pick up this shot … this day??? Your clue: look behind it. )
