I just received and installed the Eufy Floodlight Camera (model AK-T84201W1) and I’m having issues with the motion detection distance.
The floodlight camera is mounted about 8 feet high just under the peak of my shed roof. My problem is the distance at which it detects motion.
If I set the Motion Detection Sensitivity to level 4 or below it will only detect motion from just under the camera out to about 15 feet. The walkway in the back yard that I am monitoring is at 21 feet. At level 4 and 21 feet away I can jump up and down and wave my arms and still no motion detected.
Now, if I set the Motion Detection Sensitivity to level 5 it does detect motion at 21 feet. But, it also detects EVERYTHING else including shadow movement, birds flying by, squirrels, etc. Even if I have the Activity Zone set quite small.
How can I get it to detect motion of a person at 21 feet without getting a TON of false notices?
