Motion Detection False Positives



  • Can someone explain how to better deal with faulty motion detection? I understand the zones and indifference concepts and feel like I have that setup pretty well, but one thing that I am fighting with is false positives due to brightness changes that effect the entire frame (and my zones) due to clouds and weather. Also, when the camera adjusts from day-to-night and night-to-day mode, same issue.

    Now, in ZoneMinder, you could set it up so that if there is a certain percentage change or higher in a zone (or frame), then it is not recognized as a motion event.

    Now, there is a Noise Filter option with a Range setting, but it is not in the documentation. Is this what needs to be messed with?
