    Need help with my alerts getting the proper motion zones flagged.

    I have my porch marked as Zone B, everything as Zone A. My motion alerts will only show AB if the motion is detected in B first and then in A. If the motion starts in A and then continues into B, it only gets marked as A. What do I need to change for both of these scenarios to be marked as AB?

    What part do I need to seal up a junction box when I have an Ethernet cable coming out?

    In that case I can just dill a hole in a plug and use duct putty with it. Thanks again.

    Insane amount of particles causing false alerts at night. Is it due to where my camera is?

    Thank you both. I'm adjusting the lights and I'll be moving the underdeck light to the backyard to point and the dark area I just made. I'm also reviewing videos of me walking around. :) Sucks that all of this can only be done at night.

    Thanks. I've been using duct seal for the house penetrations. So these SJ connectors seal tight on an ethernet cable? Also, do I need to cut the connector off?

    I have one of these round boxes but the wire needs to exit out the side. How do I seal that hole up with the wire?

    I'm getting closer to final config. This is one $25 light under the camera and three $15 lights. One mounted under the deck pointing down and two other aimed at different parts of the backyard. Nice improvement for about $100 including extensions and splitters.

    Got some fog tonight. Turned the lights on the camera to see how bad it is and the comparison pictures don't lie. All of the external IR are on in both pictures. The first picture shows the fog bouncing back at the camera with its lights on. That fog is also moving around a lot.

    Alright, I've done a temp install with two IR lights and turn the lights off that are built into the camera. One of these about a foot beneath my camera and one of these shinning off the rear deck to the right building adding light just beyond where the first lights begin to fade. I plan on...

    Well that's about to happen. Going to put up two or three these.

    Question. How much of an offset are we talking to prevent rain and fog from bouncing back to the camera? What if an IR light through the window below the camera? Would that work?

    Its a Lechange NK168P083-IPC which is just a rebadged Dahua.

    Insane amount of particles causing false alerts at night. Is it due to where my camera is?

    It took me months to figure out that this is not sideways rain. It's tiny particles that travel in every direction, but mostly upward right towards the camera. It's impossible for me to dial my settings down low enough to ignore this and still capture animals that have come through my backyard.

    Camera with IR emitter, triggers at night in rain

    Where do you position the external light in reference to the camera? Do they have to be on the same plain?

    Not triggering when I run across the yard. What setting to change?

    When reviewing the clips, I have lots of yellow boxes showing that it is sensing me, but it doesn't turn red unless I slow down. My settings are shown below. I've tried Gaussian and Simple, same result.

    Need help getting alerts for only one zone.

    So I have Zone A and Zone B. I only want sms alerts from Zone B, but I keep getting some from Zone A. It's not all of them though. I don't think the alerts have Zone B in them because the in BI5, the alerts show that only A was trigger, not B or AB. This is the settings I have. I've tried with...
