Motion Sickness?

I have to say, this is a little crazy. I had motion tracking on, and even through the ceiling fan is always in frame, the camera bounces back and forth. Eventually, so as not to wear out the motor, I disabled tracking, but this tracking algorithm needs a bit of work.


Can you set a detection zone that does not include the fan?

Fun thing is, that’s outside the zone I set. But it tracked something from in zone to out, and once it got “caught” in this loop, it was stuck.

Setting a Pan up in a room with a running ceiling fan and turning on motion tracking is determintal to its health. We found that out in testing. :dizzy_face:

That should be put in a warning someplace.

Omg Im sorry this is happening. And I disabled mine from doing this just because of fans. But I just laughed so hard at seeing this. This is absolutely hilarious… Again Im sorry.

Sometimes they get lonely, and start looking for their master.


My pan cams have had their fair share of motion detection issues-usually related to returning to detection zone. I don’t typically use tracking because I’m usually monitoring for security and the camera motor noise is a giveaway.
Your video is hilarious- I’m sorry it’s at your expense!
