Recently my floodlight started getting triggered by passing cars headlights reflecting off of my parked cars . Makes no sense
Any reason ? Setting a detection zone around the parked car fixes it , but I need to have that area in my detection zones for motion detection . I don’t wanna be blocking my car off every night . Ugh another issue with my floodlight ://////
Here’s the log id number for when the floodlight got triggered on in the video included in my initial post
This is the log for the floodlight when it got triggered again last night on the 19th of August . I have reduced the pir sensor range but a cars headlights should not be triggered on a floodlight when the floodlights been set to only turn on when motions been detected by a pir sensor !
It looks to me like it is detecting motion via the camera even though you have it off. Maybe try turning on ‘Motion detected by camera’ back out of it so it saves, then go back in and turn it off and see if maybe it resets it. Only thing I can think of currently.
Sorry for the constant bother but this floodlight is just a constant stick in the mud for me . 9 months of having it and it’s been a terrible experience . On my 2nd unit so far … 3rd one might be coming soon
Hi Rulwiz. Just had some feedbacks from our dev team. They were wondering if you could change the sensitivity to low and try again? And if there could be more logs submitted I will really apprecaite that.
This is when I first installed the floodlight , I have moved the pir sensor more downwards facing the ground but the little swivel thing can NOT go any lower
Which is why i have requested for the next floodlight version to have a bottom pir sensor facing downwards . Bc like my situation when on a wall it can not detect what’s below it and the pir sensor neck swivel thing cannot go any lower .
Changing the sensitivity to low helped with the false motion light activations by cara headlights but after switching it to low sensitivity i again am suffering from really late motion light activation.
Even after setting the pir sensor range to 64% I have to literally be right below it for it to trigger on…
This is why I had the sensitivity set to high so it could trigger quicker on but it would get triggered by all of the motion events like cars headlights , bugs , ligjt changes , cars , etc .
Please pass the word up to Wyze that this floodlight needs some work done . Especially on the pir sensor .
And to add more capabilities to the pir sensor .
For example add a bottom sensor so it can detect what’s right below it . And also add the ability to customize each pir sensoe zone individuality!
