I am using the motion detection feature to record movement in our house.
As you can guess, we have windows in our house. I excluded these windows from the movement detection area to reduce false positive detection created by something moving outside. The problem is, quite often the movement detection will be triggered by a change in the lighting coming from the window and affecting the whole scene the camera is monitoring. An example of this would be a cloud going in front of the sun on a sunny day, reducing the lighting in the whole house. There is no way to exclude this using an area. Since it affects the whole scene, trying to adjust sensitivity just won’t do unless I set it so low that the motion detection just won’t trigger if someone goes in front of the camera.
Most of these detections are short. I record 5 seconds when a motion is detected and most of the time, these false positive only last 6-7 seconds.
Would it be possible to create (or does it exists?) a parameter that only keeps the recording if it last more than X seconds? This would effectively keeps most of the real motion detection and get rid of all the false detection or too short to be of any use.
