What does PIR sensitivity mean in the Cloud Camera® settings?

Claes Updated by Claes

PIR Sensitivity" in the settings of your Cloud Camera® game camera refers to the sensitivity of the Passive Infrared (PIR) sensor. PIR sensors are designed to detect heat and motion in the environment, making them ideal for detecting animals and people.

When we talk about "PIR Sensitivity", we're referring to how easily the sensor can detect these changes in heat and motion. If you set the PIR sensitivity to a high value, the camera will be more sensitive to smaller movements and temperature changes. This can be useful if you're trying to detect smaller animals or want the camera to respond to minimal movements.

On the other hand, if you set the PIR sensitivity to a low value, the camera will require larger movements or more significant temperature changes to trigger. This can be useful if you want to avoid false alarms from small animals or leaves moving in the wind.

It's important to note that the PIR sensitivity setting may need to be adjusted depending on the specific conditions in the area where the camera is installed. It might be a good idea to experiment with different settings to see which one works best for your needs.
