Re: Yawcam motion records hundreds of pitch black videos at night

I have Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000, so it doesn't have infrared light, but it works better that way. I don't like the black & white videos produced by IR light anyway. Many thanks to you, now the webcam no longer records at night, except only when the PIR activated light is on. For day time, I leave ...

Re: Yawcam motion records hundreds of pitch black videos at night

Greetings Malun, I want to report that the darkness filter works great. Thanks for making it easy. The recorded darkness event shows 99% so I just set mine to 98% and the whole night goes by without a single clip. :D And yes, this is the same for 2 night straight now so it's fair to conclude that it...

Re: Yawcam motion records hundreds of pitch black videos at night

Thank you, Malun, for your reply. For what it's worth, I'm actually using the "Reference Image" algorithm because I like slow motion to be captured. I also have "auto level" enabled. I wonder if you could do this for the motion sensing video code portion: if( /* most frame pixels are not dark (i.e.,...

Yawcam motion records hundreds of pitch black videos at night

Hello Malun, I hope you can answer this question or suggest a workaround. I have a Logitec webcam set up to motion sensor record my driveway. In daylight, it works OK. At night, I have a motion sensor light that turns on when it detects passive infrared. When this happens, Yawcam records, which is g...
