This can be peeled off to reveal a pristine screen. “I can hear a rough sound from the microphone but nobody is around” The microphone is very sensitive and often picks up atmospheric noise like wind. Turn down the volume on the monitor. “Motion detection keeps recording, but nobody is there” Motion detection looks for movement from any source. Please ensure there are no trees blowing in the wind or other movement. High sensitivity levels can create ‘false positives’, try reducing the sensitivity level. “The PIR did not detect someone moving past” The PIR has a maximum range of 5m on both the 5m and 15m night vision camera models. In warm weather the range can be reduced. FCC Information This product should not be exposed to water unless otherwise stated. Turn off the product if it is not in use.
