On a doorbell 3 plus, first battery lasted 23 days. Messed with settings etc, getting loads of motion still, had already set up advanced motion detection, it was the reason for buying to get programmed zones.
However, is it correct that within the programmed motion zone this is what is classed as “someone at the front door” ? I still get numerous motion recordings, but not notifications, of people walking past, but which are outside of the programmed motion zone. Is this correct?
My front garden is small and a lot of people walk past and so am getting recordings, not notifications though a lot.
The other problem is although “people mode” is enabled a lot of recordings are trucks and cars driving past, well past the programmed motion zone.
I’ve been into support who checked all settings and said all were ok, but just said to use the wedge to point down, which I don’t want to do as doesn’t look good.
So is the programmed motion zone just to have this zone classed as “someone at door”, but the doorbell will record all people walking past no matter about the programmed zone anyway?
