I like the Eufy system (2 camera/base station) pretty much so far, though I have’t had it a full month yet. My one issue so far is the reaction time before recording actually takes place. I’m sure I must be doing something wrong, but I can’t sort it out. Hence, here I am looking for a possible solution.
The camera in question is mounted on my front porch, looking down. It covers the steps leading up to the porch, and the front door, plus a partial on the driveway. Anyway, by the time the recording starts, the camera only captures the back of the mail carrier. His approach up the steps (though he approaches at 90 degrees to the top step, from the lawn) is missed completely. Oddly, a returning car coming down the driveway is captured before passing out of view. Similarly a car leaving is captured at the mouth of the driveway. I’ve set the beta zone coverage to cover the steps and that 90 degree approach the mail carrier uses, but still only the carrier’s back is shown, and typically when turning to the left to leave after delivering the mail. Where the camera is mounted gives it a very good look-down view, and I’ve thought to relocate it a bit lower. I’m not sure lowering it will do anything to improve/decrease the time before recording begins. The mail carrier must be inside some minimum detection to trigger a recording. anyone?
