I am almost one month in to using camect. I have one more RING camera to replace and then I will be done. I have tried several different "person" detect aware systems, RING, WYSE (when they still had XNOR), sighthound, KASA and one other I can't remember now. All of them generated way too many false positives which generally lead to user fatigue and you either ignore alerts or turn them off. They all would trigger on windblown shrubbery or stark changes in lighting caused by clouds, shadows or lights turning on. Camect has none of these false alarms. I started off by setting it to alert me for everything and then started turning off detected objects until I am down to just people and unknown animals, right now. It is a night and day experience. Thank you Camect, congratulations on delivering on an effective security product.
For future projects I need to find an wide angle unobtrusive cam to replace the wired Ring Stick-UP cam over my garage door. Then I need to figure out how to use home automation integration to allow my hubitat system to turn on outside lights when a person is detected - that's going to take a while as I am not up on the programming required. so in the meantime, I plan on using Alexa to monitor some motion detectors and have that turn on my porch lights. Finally, I am looking forward to some future update where a RING like pause function can be enabled on the camect GUI. The notions of Home and Away are not quite what I need.
