Alexa Person Detection Announcements & Event Videos

Looking for possible theories on this:

I have 6 of my CP Cam V3 set within Alexa to announce Person Detections on my 3 Echo Dots.

Recently, Alexa has been announcing PD at a MUCH higher freequency than my app has been pushing notifications or recording PD Video Events to the Events tab.

Last night, there were no less than a dozen announcements on 3 different cams, yet there are only two Event Videos.

It is to the point right now that I have to shut these off.

Any Ideas on why or how this occurs? Thx.

Some kind of bug. There are people reporting this on Reddit too. It has been happening to me all night too. I think Alexa is treating any motion as a person detection right now for some reason. I imagine it will be resolved soon now that it’s almost business hours.


Yep, same here. I have been getting a lot of Alexa Notifications but not on the app.

Great. Woke up at 5 AM to the sound of “person detected” on two different cameras. Video shows barely a leaf moving.

Well that confirms it. Not just me. Thx!


Glad I have my Echo Dots set to do not disturb.
