Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Enhancement request:   Many competitor cameras have a 30 second look back feature from when the camera detects motion.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Please tighten up the camera sensitivity/motion detection.   I have all my cameras set on people only which is the lowest sensititity and all day long I get notifications from  neighborhood dogs or cats.   It is just a matter of time until I snooze a true notification thinking it is a animal.  

 

Other camera brands (will not mention any names) will distinguish between people, cars, and animals so you can turn on and off the notifications you want.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I have the same problem (which I commented on).  As you said other cameras allow for this customization.  Basically, I don't want to be alerted when something the size of a bread box walks in view of the camera (to include hornets in front of the lens).  I have the spotlight camera and it only allows reducing sensitivity, but I don't think this is the same as eliminating entire classes of motion (small animals, cars, trucks, flowers, trees etc).  All of which should result in an entirely different signature when it comes to motion detection.  Personally, I only want to know when a person is in field of view.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Motion detection zones with different properties - 

 

My use case would be -

Detection zone 1 - record and send notification (within garden area)

Detection zone 2 - record without sending notification (footpath in front of garden area)

 

This would enable me to capture people passing (we have had some damage to cars parked outside) but not get notifications everytime somebody walks past.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I don't have one yet so I don't know the features... but I do know that I love my doorbells and the only thing that is preventing me from buying the cam is the fact that they must be plugged in.  I wish they could be battery operated like the doorbells!!!  At least offer one that is available with a battery for those of us who don't want cords running along the walls!!!

They have stick up cams and spotlight cams that are battery. They have been out for a couple years now.

1. The ability to have the cameras and motion sensors be atuned to your location data on your phone thru the ring app etc like Nest does with their cameras.  I would like to be able to have some of my cameras remain on and watching for motion while keeping others off like the ones inside my home.  Setting them up with just a turn on/off motion during these times of the day/week is not sufficient enough.  I don't want to have to go into the app to do this every time I come home.  I want it to occur automatically.

Re: Security Cams Feature - Indoor Cam longer power cord

I just installed a pair of new Indoor Cams; found that the power cord is rather short.  

One Cam replaced a Nest Indoor cam;  the Nest cam had a power cord about 10 feet long, but the Ring Indoor Cam is only about 6 feet, so it was difficult to locate the Ring Cam in the same place using the stock power cord (I was able to use the Nest power cord to reach the same location).  

Another Indoor Cam placed in the garage needed an extension cord to be able to reach to a location to "see" above vehicles.
