Adjust Motion Sensitivity

Motion sensitivity may need to be adjusted for the following reasons:

  • Improve motion detection sensitivity, particularly if you have only a few pods and/or Wi-Fi connected devices.
  • There are obstructions that are making it difficult for your pods and devices to detect motion in some areas.
  • You are getting too many false motion alerts because of your pets or robotic vacuums.
  • Low (less sensitive to motion intensity)
  • Medium (default)
  • High (more sensitive to motion intensity)

If you choose High sensitivity, you can also choose the Have Pets at home option to help filter out their movement in your home. This increases the duration of movement needed to trigger an alert from 2 seconds to 5 seconds.

After choosing your sensitivity setting, use the Live View and test the results in all the areas you want to detect motion in.

  1. Open the Midco Wi-Fi app. From the home screen, open the main menu and choose Sense.
