xx42a sensibility settings
« on: February 02, 2013, 07:28:46 AM »

just set up two xx42a cameras and while testing the motion/record settings I was able to find a happy medium for triggering a recording on cars crossing the bridge to out property. However I can't get a reeaction/recording using people crossing the same bridge as we did with the car tests.
Have tried the sensibility settings from 1 -10 and 10 -1.
Any ideas or similar experiences?

This probably is not help, but more of a question for understanding:

If you have you movement threshold sensitivity set to the point that a car will not trigger it, how can a smaller target like a person trigger it?

Having said that, the fact that a person will not trigger at all may be because the person, at a distance, is simply not a large enough target. Movement in a video frame has to be de-sensitized to some degree, otherwise tree/bush movement, changing sunlight patterns from rapidly moving clouds, etc will produce many false triggers. I know software detection is a lot better than when I used it in early 2000s but my guess is the software still looks for some percentage of the image to vary for a trigger and the targets are too small to hit that percentage. Zoom in and see what happens when a person walks across the bridge.

hi and thanks for the reply. I think I said in my original post that I could capture car movement just not body movement. I don't see any settings for zoom in the ipcamera app.
