Why do I sometimes get a periodic false trigger on motion detector?
The motion detectors are designed to look for human or animal body heat signatures. It is possible to sometimes get what you think is a false trigger by smaller animals and it’s even remotely possible that direct sunlight or sudden changes in wind/temperature could cause a false trigger. Care was taken to minimize these possibilities but it could occur. Some general tips:
- Don’t put motion detection eye directly into sunlight
- Keep motion detection eye clean
