There have been reports of the PanV3 randomly stopping recording. It was captured in the Fix-It Friday thread:
Beta Firmware 126.96.36.19967 was subsequently released as Public Firmware:
However it may have since been suspended as there is no link in the Firmware & Updates page to download the Flash .bin for this version.
Beyond that, as @K6CCC has already mentioned, the subscription is important to know. It is only compatible with Cam Plus, so without it the 5m cooldown would be in play. Also important are the Cam’s sensitivity settings, the Detection Zone, and the Night Vision Mode (color vs IR). All these could change effectiveness in certain environments.
So you have no cooldown. That possibility is ruled out.
Yes, however you don’t have to be notified of these uploaded “motion” events. You can turn off notifications for “other motion events” in the notifications settings for the cam and filter out motion events in the Events tab.
If your bug situation is returning false positive AI tagged events, I suggest leaving the cam in Auto but turning the LED IR Light Emitters off and installing a IR Floodlight or Blaster away from the cam pointed at the cam FOV. This will attract bugs away from the lens of the cam and the IR will not reflect off of them back into the lens if they do cross the FOV close to the lens because the IR source is no longer on the cam face.
This may be related to your sensitivity setting, the IR illumination level in the cam FOV, or it could be part of the bug mentioned earlier that they are working on.
You are right to feel that way. Either the cam needs tuned or there is a bug in the firmware.
