If the face of the cam is looking straight ahead it won’t work well with motion coming straight at or away from the camera, it captures motion best when it is side to side. Move the face of the camera a little left or right depending on where you park. If you park in the current spot all the time I would move the face of the cam to the right as red line shows. The PIR zone is quite wide so move a few degrees left or right as per the red and green lines I show. Here is one of cams, red line is direction face of cam is pointing. SET EVERYTHING AT 100
Spend 15 bucks and get a SD 32 GB card…set to full time recording at 1080 and it will record for 2 days and then rewrite over itself. Also if you lose your Wi-Fi it will continue to record however until WiFi is back u will not be able to access it! Good luck
The best of both: You need to use Cam Plus or Cam Plus Lite to get the cloud event recordings and push notifications. You can not back up the event videos to the base with Cam Plus but it does work with Cam Plus Lite. You can do Scheduled event recording to the SD card in the camera while using cam plus and cam plus lite. Ever since about Feb.2021 I was no longer able to download the cloud event videos and save them on my iOS device so I cancelled Cam Plus. I am able to download the 12 second event videos with CP Lite. If doing scheduled event recording, motion only I can also down load the videos that are on the camera SD card from the camera Album. It is kind a of pain because you have to download the videos to your phone/device to view via the app, or just take the SD out and view on a PC. If you are brave you can set your WCO to scheduled recording to the SD in the cam for continuous but you will have a 100% dead battery in 6-8 hours.
I prefer using CP lite (Free) and scheduled event motion only recording on my cams at the same time. Set the cam for 30 days, motion only, each video duration to 2 min each. no cooldown period. This does require more battery charging in a busy area but not to bad, 5-6 weeks.
If you do scheduled event recordings and turn detects motion off under the cam event recording setting (Cloud Recording) the cam will still record to the SD, but you will not get push notifications.
I guess I should explain what I have… I have Cam plus on all my cameras along with SD card… However my cam plus did miss an event…
I was able to see it using the SD card… It was actually picked up first by a nest camera that I have as back up … I don’t understand why the cam plus didn’t pick it up
