Hi @qrwfh2 ,

Thank you for reaching out to Alfred!

To help the motion detection work better at night, please try Alfred’s Low-Light Filter! Alfred’s Low-Light Filter still needs a little light to work. Please find some tips for optimizing its performance here:

If you need further assistance, you can always send us a screenshot or a link to an Event so we can take a look and give you more specific advice.

Hope this helps!
