I’ve put the version 4 of the ring doorbell in the same housing as the v2. Same settings, maximum sensitivity.* Snapshots (between video stills that are in the timeline) show huge trucks and stuff suddenly appearing and disappearing without any motion-triggered video. The v2 doorbell would never have this; it would always detect motion and start filming, albeit without the preroll. I doubt that all the dogs died when I installed the ring doorbell 4. (Dog walkers walking by no longer trigger motion video recording.)
Question: is there a hack I can do to make it more sensitive? Perhaps plugging in an ac transformer so it thinks it has more power?
Question: do I have a bad unit? Or do others have the same issues? Is there any adjustable potentiometer I could adjust to get more alerts?
*To get maximum triggers you set as follow:
smart alerts=off, advanced motion detection=off, motion sensitivity=max (slider to right-most position), motion freq=frequently, snapshot capture=every 5 mins (requires connecting to ac when setting only), vid recording=120 seconds.
