Right , I see those settings and I have my v3 set to record events when theirs motion detected yet when i raise my motion detection sensitivity it’ll make my pir sensor really sensitive. No matter if I only have the floodlight to only turn on when motion is just detected by the pir sensor…
I have had the floodlight for 8 months and that’s how it’s worked for me , I even spoke to wyze and they told me that they floodlight v3 was engineered to the pir sensor .
Any chance you could please also ask if that floodlight PIR sensor or a variant could be sold as a stand-alone add on sensor and plugged into the back of existing V3s? That would alleviate all/most of the “my V3 went off because of flashing headlights, waving shadows, tree beaches, etc.” that get triggered solely by the pixel differentiation algorithm.
I tried posting a new topic in the WishList and it was put under a similar request from 3 years ago that’s labeled as Maybe Later. To me that seems like “ain’t never gonna happen”. Was hoping that recent discussions might revive the idea.
For how many people that post that the they get false alerts from flashing lights, bugs, shadows, leaves etc, it sounds like Wyze would sell a lot of these stand-alone units as V3 accessories.
Cam Plus can only do so much. AI detection filtering takes time to be able to send out a notification and is better suited to look at events after they’ve happened. For people that want to know about motion from a person, animal or vehicle as it’s happening to be able to get to the Livestream or microphone, waiting for a notification from AI filtering out waving tree branches from actual persons or vehicles may be too long. PIR isn’t perfect, but comparing the amount of false notifications I get on my Wyze floodlight (hardly anything) versus my V3 (about 10-20 a day and night) tells me that the PIR sensors are good for something without sacrificing time waiting for a clip to be uploaded to the cloud, analyzed by AI and then a notification being generated.
Correct , but any reason why my floodlight will get triggered by bugs and cars headlights that are reflecting off of my parked cars even when the floodlight has been set to only turn on when motion is detected by the pir sensor ?
The only thing I could guess and it is just a guess is that when you are setting it to only use the PIR motion it is still using the camera. I have a floodlight but have not paid much attention to it because it does not see much traffic. I will do some tests and see if i can replicate your issue.
I’ve had countless other brands floodlight cameras and hundreds of motion sensing lights around my property for years and I’ve never had a single one get triggered on by a passing cars headlights . Not one , only since I’ve been using my wyze floodlight does that affect me …weird
