that’s my understanding too. but its not working for me. the lowest possible detection setting and person detection is on. Tonight 11/28, it is flurrying out and Im getting motion capture video recorded. I am just doublechecking I am not missing something in settings- this is all new. But I think I’ve tried everything
Did you find a solution? I’m having the same problem with both my Wyze cam V3. Defeats the point of having security cameras if finding an actual event is like searching for a needle in a hay stack. I added both to my cam plus subscription hoping it would fix the problem but the AI selection settings don’t seem to do anything. I have 7 cam outdoor and they are doing fine, a little less sensitive than I’d like but much better than this.
@bartjoebob please report back on tech support for snow triggers.
I installed today first time camera owner and snow flurries triggered recorded video events, and worse, the auto mode flood light kept turning on when event detected. I had to turn OFF floodlight…and I only allowed AI events to notify.
Wyze please fix so that floodlight can trigger with only AI events…yet I know that poses a problem with cloud based AI. So…create a firmware with AI on device…need better hardware…
SNOW isn’t the only problem with this camera…high wind blowing and swaying branches or even dust will trigger the motion sensor (even when dialed down into single digits). The flood light has to be disabled for a snow storm or wind storm manually…then you forgot to re-enable and have no light when you WANT it. Honestly this product is micky-mouse quality… I posted on another topic how the very cold temps in the single digits or below zero seem to cause the unit to shut down the internet and go offline…then it requires a manual trip out to the garage and flip the breaker (again and again). Completely NOT a set and-forget toy.
UPDATE I think I figured this out. I no longer have snow, bugs, dust, car headlight beams across the yard tripping the recording and turning on the floodlight. There are in fact 2 aspects of this combo that can be set to trigger event recordings.
First there is the traditional motion detector, what we’re all used to. It’s sensitivity can be adjusted under Settings > Detection Settings. I have mine set to 11 for Motion and 40 for Sound.
Second, the camera itself by default is set to trigger event recording when it sees motion. This is what was causing issue. The camera trigger can be turned off (the motion detector will still function more than adequately to trigger needed recordings even at night). Settings > Accessories > Floodlight > Uncheck “Motion is detected by Camera” under Turn on when dark section. Also while here I have PIR checked, on Low, and at max distance.
No more every minute all night long events. No more flood light turning on every minute in a snowstorm. Cars, people, pets are all detected and recorded.
I guess you seem to be missing the point, continuous nuisance notifications and events every 5 minutes without cam plus or less with is not a viable aolution. It can’t reliably detect people so that is not an option as well.
