And the motion zone needs to be customizable than just a square/rectangle. Ring Cams have 8 point motion zone points (that is 3 points on each side), that is almost enough, I would prefer 16 (that 4 on each side).
Bait was not taken thank god. I rushed home as soon as i could! It took me about 15 minutes to coax him out with some apples I only had my sens set to 40% and i had it 5 or so inches off the floor so nothing could be chewed on.
Ive got 2 Wyze Cams set up in our attic to detect mice or rats. I had the same question when I bought the first Wyze Cam…ie whether the cam is sensitive enough to detect mice.
At the “Night Mode” sensitivity setting of 100 I am finding that Im getting a whole bunch of false positives from critters much much smaller than mice, such as tiny moths , noseeums, etc. Therefore Ive concluded that Wyze cams are without a doubt sensitive enough to detect mice.
I think the mistake you may be making is that in Night Mode, the camera uses infra red HEAT signature contrast to detect. I suspect that if you heated those cans up, and then moved them even 1/4 inch the camera would catch them right away!!
Or if in DAY mode, with light on, the motion detection would also catch them right away even if cans are at room temperature!
Ive dialed down my Night Mode sensitivity setting to 90 to try and hit that sweet spot where the camera will not pick up moths etc, but will still pick up mice, should they appear. If anyone reading this knows what setting would be appropriate, would be much appreciated!!??
