I'm working from home in my basement, so I thought I could point this at the rear patio door and receive notification whenever our dog showed up to be let in or out. It would also be nice to be able to check on her when she was asleep on the patio.
In theory, this should have been ideal, but motion detection proved extremely UNRELIABLE. I could walk in front of it and trigger the first couple of notifications, but it soon developed a mind of its own. The web chat mentioned something about a 3-minute hold time to prevent excessive notification, so I gave it the benefit of the doubt and waited 3 minutes before trying again, but even this did not get motion detection working reliably. In fact, at one point I left it in an empty kitchen, and I started getting spurious notifications as if maybe ghosts were moving around in there.
I gave up after fiddling with the settings for about 45 minutes, and decided to return it. Motion detection needs to be 99% reliable, not hit or miss.
