Returned my Argus 2 today. Can I please just get a definitive about the actual range of the PIR sensor – nobody seems to be willing to tell me – not here or directly in a registered discussion. I really like this product but if it can't detect effectively beyond 5 metres it's basically of little use to me. !
In your honest opinion people at Reolink – do I get a replacement as you think my unit was faulty -or is 5 to 6 metres about the limit in range -which is contrary to the product description?
After altering the angle I took the below photos whilst tethered to the camera with the PIR alarm activated – whilst walking towards the camera it did not activate on a single occasion. If however I walked into shot from the bottom it activated immediately ( see final picture ) That simply cannot be right ?
Attatched picture shows regular detection of neighbour leaving via back gate. If I walk into the same space from out of range I am never detected. The distance is barely 3.5 metres from the base of the wall upon which the Argus is mounted.
I really want this unit to be faulty as if indeed it works as described it could be a fantastic bit of kit !
Indeed ..! I have read it many times but it bears little relevance to the performance of my particular unit. Furthermore I have now ascertained that it fails to detect motion approaching the camera even when in the only spot it seems to detect motion in the opposite direction !
Can I now safely assume my unit is faulty ?
All I need to know is whether the PIR can detects at the 33ft (10m) as stated in the advertising – or only the 7m A's has been suggested by a Reolink rep. If the former I can assume a fault and return it for a replacement – if the latter then for a refund!
I don't have that option with the Argus! I'm trying to find out whether it's a limitation in the range ( I'm getting conflicting information from Reolink about this) or that the camera is faulty – it only seems to pick up motion at the bottom left of the view !
