MD is called motion detection. PoE and WiFi cameras identify the motions by comparing the two frames (before and after). If there is a difference between the two frames, the alarm for motion detection will be triggered. So the light changing will also trigger motion detection.
The higher the value is, the more sensitive the camera will be.
Based on the frame comparison, the area that the camera set to detect is the key to reduce MD false alarm. Here are the tips:
- Set the proper motion detection area on the camera, refer to Set Up Motion Detection Area for Reolink Cameras.
- Set the proper sensitivity for the camera, refer to Set Up Motion Detection Sensitivity for Reolink Cameras.
If all the settings still cannot avoid the false alerts effectively, you may try to adjust the installation angle to be away from the false alerts trigger area or contact the support team for more help.
Note: Reolink Lumus support PIR motion and motion detection to reduce false alarm and underreporting.
