Still Trying
« on: May 09, 2006, 09:29:24 PM »

1) Still trying to start a 'Help Line" with someone in the 'Know'. My baby steps are to 'record images'.

 I have been following all correspondences andI now am 'Recording". Although, I don't see anything,  or anybody (that set the sensor off) not my dogs, as I said before, I should have 100's of pic's of them running through the yard.

A typical 'Macro' set up of mine...

"Dual Flood' / Back Yard

1) Select Camera,
2) 'Auto Still Record'/ start @ 0:0:10 interval
3) Delay 1 minute
4) "Auto Still Record'/ OFF @ 0:0:10 interval 
5) 'All Modules' / All Units Off

The Camera is set to go off at 'All Times'  I got so many recordings (without seeing anyone other than background), here I tried to tell the camera to turn itself off as The lights had a mind of their own without proper recording... Now with the macro set like this I don't see the lights on all the timne but still just a few recordings.

One camera of my 4 seems to be dominant over the others in recording. 9 out of 10 images is my 'Front Yard camera'... above, is my 'Back Yard' Cam...

I spend so much time trying to get this to just record properly and what I need is nowhere I can find on this forum or anywhere else. Just too much time and it's still not securing my home... Budwah.
PS; I realize my level is that of an 'Idiot' although these are not 'Idiot' problems I'm having...

What Is the maxium amount of images you get? Perhaps AHP has an issue with the number! ;)
As for only getting background images try reducing the time interval to 00:05 dogs can certainly get out of the capure zone in 10 seconds unless your using a wide-eye cam. :) ;)
