Hi All,

Im doing this but seeing alot of false positives with motion, such as when it rains the lights will go on/off and theres lots of recording at night

Im confused as to the min contrast/make time, which would be most suited to remove these positives? The cameras record motion just fine during the day and capture the objects without an issue

Im thinking a combination of a longer make time and less contrast

thanks

Have you given Sentry a try? They have AI for human detection that is very accurate. I get almost no false positives now that I use Sentry.
