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.
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 trigger area of the false alerts or contact the support team for more help.
Note: Reolink Lumus support PIR motion and motion detection to reduce false alarm and underreporting. We also have other cameras which support Smart Detection (person detection and vehicle detection), such as the models RLC-510A; RLC-520A; RLC-810A; RLC-811A; RLC-820A; RLC-822A; RLC-1210A; RLC-1220A; RLC-511WA.
