Cameras not detecting approaching or receding motion

My wireless, battery powered cameras seldom detect motion that directly approaches or recedes from the cameras. Crossing motion detection is very quick and accurate.

One of my cameras faces directly down our driveway but the camera almost never detects our cars when we pull out or return.

Is this a flaw in the detection logic?

Hi @plas686. There’s a few factors that contribute to accurate motion detection. What specific camera models do you have? How high are these cameras mounted? How do you have your motion settings configured? Do you have Smart Alerts enabled?
