I have been using my Samsung SNV-6084R camera for a few months now, and have enjoyed great reliability with the motion detection. The camera is setup outside under an eave, and is set to the "Outdoor" presets. I do have a couple questions for the forum - hopefully someone has the answers:
1. Camera periodically "refreshes" its exposure: Periodically throughout the day, the camera seems to "refresh" its exposure, making the camera view either get much brighter (over exposed) or darker (under exposed), and then settle back to the correct exposure. It only takes a few seconds, and it's not a huge deal, other than the fact that this causes the motion detection to trip and thus causes a bunch of needless recordings...and it does this many times a day. I was hoping someone knows why it does this, and if there is a setting I can adjust to reduce/eliminate the event.
2. Facial Detection. I would love to be able to get this feature working, but so far I haven't had any luck. The camera is about 30' from the POI, and the sceen is about 20' x 10'. Does the subject need to be much closer to the camera for this feature to work properly? I haven't been able to get it to "recognize" a face at all during daylight or night time. Any help/suggestions here would be most appreciated.
I know that I have omitted many settings, etc. from this post, but if anyone has any experience with these issues/settings I would greatly appreciate your feedback.
