I see. I still think both options should be available in the settings.
Even if it’s not good for devices with many motion detections, I still think it’s viable because it would only probably happen during night (low light filter + flashlight + movement) and it really improves the quality (low light filter alone works bad if its very dark). You could make a popup warning when enabling that option? It should be an option for every user.
Also, a main switch on/off for motion detection in the viewer app should be implemented. Now if one leaves the house and the auto reminder doesn’t notify for some reason, or you dismiss the notification, you have to manually go through each camera and enable it. So there should be an setting so you could disable/enable motion detection on all cameras at the same time (like the main notification setting).
Another thing you could think of is implementing a location aware motion detection. Wifi is OK, but in my specific case when I reach the front door at home and the phone connects it adds an 30-60 seconds more until the notification is actually sent. Then it’s often too late, I have entered the house and the motion detection activates and both my and my wifes phone goes crazy…
Therefore, if you could set also or instead location in Android the motion detection would be disabled far earlier.
