    I'm installing cameras for the primary reason to identify a neighbor who doesn't pick up the poop.
    Any advice appreciated.

    No. I dont believe there is any AI trained for that, yet.
    Why dont you simply record and when you see it on your property, review the video.

    Too much time to review. And there's a sidewalk, so regular motion detection would be triggered too often.

    No pain no gain so you’ll have to do a poop review at some stage

    You can review an entire day in less than a minuet. Simply drag the timeline view. Alternatively sign up for sentry human detection.

    BI won't know the difference between a dog and a tree but you certainly can record upon motion detect and look through the clips manually.

    I watched a recording of my dog taking a dump last night when I went through my clips this morning.

    Try the "now you see it / now you don't" binary chop approach. Pretty efficient ...

    Just set the motion zones to be your grass and exclude the sidewalk. That way when the dog that leaves the sidewalk to squat you'll get an alert.

    Me personally? I want to see every person that comes down my sidewalk. You never know when that can be handy. People do the strangest things.

    And as was said before, scrubbing an entire day to see whodunnit is easy, just fast scrub until the turd disappears, then hit play. Takes less than 10 seconds.

    My cameras pretty much cover the whole front of the house. So if there is any dog poop it is easy to chase down the culprit. I look for when the poop is there and when it is not there and you close in on the time line very quickly. By the way, with the cameras I have only had one dog poop in about two years. ;)
