Detection Zone setup help

Jump to solution

You say, "usually the shaded area" shouldn't this be either one or the other?  Is it, or is it not the shaded area that is the detection Zone?  If not what situation would make it one or the other or both?  Why can't this be a direct answer?  I've been toggling with this for so long I'm ready to go with another Securiry camera company.  Please confirm a direct answer to the orignal question. Thank you for your follow up.

Hi @Mr21921md @TronCarterIII,

Greetings from the Roku Community, and thanks for keeping us posted!

We will be more than happy to assist you. Please be advised that your camera or video doorbell might be positioned to have a wide view, but you only want to detect motion in a specific area. The detection zone feature allows you to define a specific area where your device will detect movement. Everything outside of the zone is ignored and will not trigger an event recording.

You may also want to check out this support article here on how to adjust motion detection settings on your Roku Smart Home camera or video doorbell.

Best regards,
John

I just did some testing with my doorbell camera, and I can say definitively for the wired doorbell camera SE that THE SHADED AREA IS THE AREA THAT MOTION IS IGNORED BY THE CAMERA. When setting up the motion detection zone, you want to shade the areas where you want motion to be ignored by the camera.
