I started to use Motion scheduling because every night, sometimes multiple times I was awoken by small deer, rabbits or skunks. I have People Mode only on the cameras and I have trimmed the detection areas to real small areas. I have multiple cams (Flood and Spot) and they all exhibit the same issue. People Mode did not reduce the false alarms to the point, I don’t think it does anything.
Next, I compromised security by using the scheduled settings. I turn of alarms from 9pm to 6am. I have a separate Weekday and Weekend schedule which may be important to note.
First off, I found it strange that no video has been captured during the scheduled times I set. Considering I was awoken each night. So, I question if the scheduling of the cameras also stops video recording. I will test again today.
Secondly, Animals still set off the notifications even though I have a schedule. Its not as offten as before but does happen.
