Motion Detection area movement bug [Yawcam 0.4.1]

Post by Siewert » Wed Nov 05, 2014 12:42 pm

Wanna report a motion detection bug with latest YawCam on a Win7 machine with latest Java and Java SE developement kit installed.
I have a old webcam [Logitec Quickcam - Chat] setup as front portal cam.
Running WIN 7 as server, have Stream, email notification and motion detection enabled.
Just for playing but noticed a bug in the motion detection.
I have setup a specific area where it should detect motion.
See Attachment...

I set this area as i don't want to be notified on every car passing by.

Now here are the bugs i ran into.
1. every movement out side the motion detection box will trigger the motion detection as i get a email notification.
But the motion detection trigger/sensitivity bar isn't triggered.
Even a cat outside of the motion detection will trigger it.

2. As for today it's a little bit sunny and some clouds float by.
When a cloud comes over and there for creating a little bit of shade the motion detection is also triggered.
But the motion detection trigger/sensitivity bar isn't triggered.

On both scenarios I fiddled with the detection levels but it seems no matter how insensitive i set it the issue still persists.
Every thing out side the box triggers the detection.
And when i set the sensitivity to low everything in the box like a mailman for example doesn't trigger the motion detection.
