    Over the past few months I have been tweaking settings but can't seem to find a happy medium. :banghead:
    So called Grey Market Hikvision DS-7608NI-I2/8P with Hikvision DS-2CD2355FWD-I x 3 & DS-2CD2335FWD-I x 1

    Firmware V5.5.3 build 171018

    For this thread, using the setting from DS-2CD2355FWD-I 4mm Email set up on camera not the NVR (some reason it doesn't work as good)

    One thing I do hate about the Hik CAM sending emails is sometimes I will get duplicate or even triplicate of the same three shots.

    I have line crossing detection setup to detect <---> crossing, there are times I will get an email of one but not the other crossing direction.
    Phantom emails in the dead of night from car headlights, not too often though.

    As of late, I get bombarded with emails, warmer weather has brought the critters.

    Looking to tweak the setting to minimize emails from critters and hopefully capture more human activity.
    Hope the collective minds here can help me with this. :headbang:

    Get a proper outdoor PIR or microwave/dual tech motion detector - anything using the cameras own optics as the alarm/event activation will be flawed and cause too many false positives.

    The camera I am using there does not have alarm input.

    I would have no idea how to get the two to interact??

    Take it the recorder itself has no alarm inputs either?

    Draw the line as close to the house as you can tolerate. That will get the headlights and most of the critters out of the equation.

    It does but the NVR is unreliable when it come to sending emails. When I had it set up to send emails and not the cameras, I was barely getting any.

    I will try that with the line.

    First I would disable and clear all motion detection zones.
    If needed replace them with a intrusion zone.
