Thanks for the response. I pasted the Dropbox link directly and the web site replaced it with a window that looked like it would allow it to stream, but it doesn’t. I added two dashes in front of the link so perhaps you can copy/paste it to view the video?
In response to your suggestions, I do have detection zones set. Unfortunately they coincide with the shadows from the trees!
I have tried Background Modeling and Blob Detection - it may have reduced the false alarms but if so it wasn’t noticeably better. I’ll experiment with them further.
One question on the threshold: for the bar that shows how much motion is being detected, there is a vertical gray bar that indicates the threshold. Even when I set the threshold to 99 that bar was still located in the same position. Should the placement of that vertical bar move left or right as you adjust threshold? And how come if I turn that up to 99 the slightest of motion still sets it off? At some point shouldn’t it be so high that no motion is enough to trigger it?
I’ll experiment with the other settings and report back if I find a magic combination that works.
