How to Adjust the PIR Detecting Sensitivity on Reolink App

Argus/Keen rely on the PIR to detect a movement, adjusting the sensitivity of the PIR means to adjust the detecting distance of the PIR. The higher the sensitivity is, the longer distance the PIR will detect.

The default sensitivity is set to “Mid”, users can adjust the sensitivity according to actual needs, please follow the steps below:


  1. Go to “Device Settings”, click “PIR Settings” under “Alarm”.
  2. Press Low/Mid/High to choose the Sensitivity you want, press the button on the top right to save the settings.


Higher sensitivity offers longer detecting distance, but it would lead to more false alarms.

You are advised to set up the sensitivity level to “Low” or “Mid” when you install the camera outdoors.
