Help With Video Analytics And Face Detection On Samsung Camera

I'm a Newby, setting up residential house surveillance system DYI. I use Samsung IP camera SNO-6084R and have a few questions.

I have the latest firmware installed. Camera is mounted about 9’ off the ground on angle, looking down on the driveway. Zoomed out for widest view.

  1. Motion Detection. Camera consistently triggers motion detection when it automatically switches from Day color to Night B/W mode and vice versa. It does it even on the lowest sensitivity. Light changes on the scene are highlighted during this transition as if motion detected. All settings in Day/Night section are default.
  2. False alarms in motion detection. All night recording triggers from bugs, spider web over the lens. I guess bugs attracted buy the IR light. How do you deal with those? I have least sensitive setting set.
  3. Video Analytics is not working for me no matter what. I played with sensitivity, mode (passing, appearing etc.) It just does not trigger. I have non detection area (blue) defined to monitor only close proximity to the house.
  4. Face Detection is useless. Often it decides that wheels on my car look like faces .
  5. Does it makes sense to install dedicated PIR/MW motion sensor like Bosch OD-850 and connect it to the Alarm-in on camera to minimize false alarms? Just want to raise WAF as it's pretty low right now.

Any other experience, setup advice you can share is appreciated. ( Like profiles you are setting for recording, monitoring etc) .

I want to set my expectations right as I have not much to compare to. I wander if I paid double for the Axis or Sony with the same features I would be free or less of those issues.

Thanks!
