Cove Outdoor Camera - Security cameras | Cleat Safety Bracket (2023)

  • Outdoor Camera Motion Detection Best PracticesThe outdoor camera is designed to capture video of motion-triggered events. It doesn't record everything 24/7 as that would require more storage space than a cloud-based camera can handle. Instead, the camera starts recording as soon as it detects motion and records for a set period of time (typically 6 to 60 seconds) after the motion event occurs. Additional Storage Option: The camera has a port to insert a MicroSD card and also includes 7 days of free cloud storage that you can download to your device. How long does the automatic recording take? The recording duration is set to 6 seconds by default, but can be adjusted up to 60 seconds. You can adjust this through your camera settings in the Cove app. Just go to the live stream, click the gear icon, click "Recording Duration" and adjust the slider to your desired duration. Please note: the higher the duration setting, the longer it takes for the camera to render and notify you when it's triggered. How do I get notifications on your phone/device? In order for you to receive notifications when your camera completes a capture, the following notifications must be enabled: Videos and photos: In order for your device to receive notifications through the Cove app, you must enable video and photo notifications for that camera. . If you're watching a live stream, you won't get notifications. User notifications: Make sure push notifications are enabled in the Cove app. Read this article to set it up. Smart detection settings These are the settings that allow the camera to notify you when it detects motion. The parameters can be adjusted according to your preferences and the environment. How does it work? The camera uses an infrared sensor (PIR) that is activated by heat signals rather than simple movements. Filters and Detection We recommend setting your camera's filters based on your individual goals.…Read more
  • Frequently Asked Questions About Outdoor Cameras This article is either an overview or a list of specific frequently asked questions about our outdoor cameras. Frequently Asked Questions How long does the battery last? How long does loading take? The average battery life of the cameras is 2 months on average, depending on usage. Whether night vision or LED lights are on, and time spent viewing camera feeds and recordings can drain battery life. When the battery is low, the app will prompt you to change it. If the battery is completely drained, the app will report that the camera is offline and suggest that the battery needs to be charged. The battery needs to be charged before pairing. It takes about 8 hours to fully charge the battery. When the indicator light is red, it means the battery is charging. If it's green, the battery is fully charged. The video quality of the camera is very blurry. Check the camera to ensure there are no obstructions or residual moisture on the camera lens. Clean the lens with a microfiber cloth. Check the video quality in your Cove app. When you open the camera's live feed, make sure the resolution is set to HD or Auto in the bottom right. (If the camera is set to Auto, set it to HD.) This improves the quality of the camera, although high-resolution video requires the camera to load more data. Check your upload and download speed at The cameras require an upload and download speed of 0.5 Mbit/s (500 Kbit/s) per camera. Also consider how many devices you have connected to the network. As more devices connect, the flow of data to and from connected devices becomes more congested. When you're up for it, turn off a few devices for a few hours to see if that helps improve quality when set to Automatic. If this is the case, you may need to contact your internet service provider (ISP) to increase your network speed. The camera image is upside down.…Read more
