smart home camera annoyances
I got this eufy Apple HomeKit compatible camera and finally got it connected to HomeKit after a few weeks of trying. During the set up process HomeKit offered a recommended scene to turn on the light in the same room where the camera is. Since it’s in the entrance area I liked the idea to use motion detection to turn the light on and off automatically, so I don’t have to use the light switch when I’m leaving or arriving in my apartment.
Well, the motion detection detects the turn light off scene as motion and turns it back on. After two minutes it turns the lights off again, and, yes, you guessed it: Back on.
Good job. Unfortunately there’s no way to change the motion detection in HomeKit to only react to certain events or to have a slider how fine the detection should be.
