OT: Having nightmare setting up IP camera

Discussion in 'DIY Computers' started by Nick Le Lievre, Feb 19, 2012.

  1. My mother bought a D-Link Wireless IP Camera last week, I received it a week
    last Friday. On Monday last we attached it to the wall in her hallway and I
    began to have problems with the light sensitivity which triggered the camera
    off unnecessarily. So I lowered the motion detect sensitivity down to 70%
    and that seemed to have solved the problem. However this morning the camera
    had fired off 72 emails unnecessarily because we had the blinds in my
    mothers bedroom open and the daylight shone thru into the hallway triggering
    the camera.

    So now I have closed the blinds and lowered the sensitivity to 60% and I
    have also set the camera to stay in night mode which gives an infra red b &
    w picture which is how it normally operates anyway because there is not much
    natural light in her hallway.

    Anyway I am going to have to wait until tomorrow morning at sunrise to see
    if the sensitivity is alright as the sun doesn't shine thru into the hallway
    all day and I am going to keep the blinds shut. I have another one of these
    cameras to setup for a friend of my mum on Tuesday and I can foresee a lot
    of problems getting it set up right.

    I know it seems pretty obvious that the sunlight shining thru into the
    hallway this morning because the blinds were open is the reason why the
    motion detection @ 70% was triggered for the first time this week but I
    cannot be sure that we have had enough sunlight shining thru the window
    these past few days to cause this or that there will be enough sunlight
