So I’ve been checking power manager to see how my battery doorbell is holding up and I have A LOT of detected events for 5 days of use (555 events/523 filtered by AI). I live on a corner lot, so I’ve got cars going by quite frequently and people walking on sidewalks. I am mounted without the 15 degree plate as I didn’t see a benefit for my mounting location.
My settings are: optimal surveillance, LED light off, motion detection human only, sensitivity 4. I think the biggest thing is my motion zones which you can see attached. In order to capture anyone coming head on, I have to have a good chunk of the street included, which may be a contribution. Alternatively, is my best option to switch to detection type all motions and then move my motion zone to the red lines so whenever anyone passes that line it should trigger the doorbell? My guess is the sidewalk and road are causing a lot of detected events.
Any thoughts on improving my motion zone efficiency to help my battery life?
