Flood Control not working

Post by JustFax » Fri Apr 19, 2013 1:25 am

Even though I have Flood Control set to 3 seconds in Yawcam 0.4.1 in the "Motion Detection - Actions - Save file - Settings" and also Flood Control set to 2 seconds in the "Motion Detection - Actions - Ftp upload - Settings", Yawcam seems to be ignoring the Flood Control settings and instead saving a file and ftp uploading a file every 1 second on average as long as the detected motion exceeds the tolerance setting. I have the Interval set to 250 ms in the "Motion Detection - Settings". The last version of Yawcam in which I did not have this problem was 0.3.8.

Double-check your settings in 0.4.1, some of them have changed or weren't available in 0.3.8 which could explain it.

I recommend to back up your yawcam_settings.xml file before doing that so you can use it to revert to 0.3.8 if you wish.
