Outdoor camera miracle.
Friday morning 11:04 AM. Front door camera saw the mailman about 20 ft out on my sidewalk. This is a first, usually it range is 10 feet. Watched him come up the stairs and put package on the porch, then watched him walk all the way back to driveway and down towards the street.
For the record it was sunny and about 48 degrees, no wind.
My wife says it must be a fluke. Usually it sees my back going in the door only.

Most likely the angle. Depending on the approach of the target, the camera range will vary. You can test this my emulating the approach (and manner) to your postal carrier as close as possible. I have tried to replicate many issues raised in the forums over the years (glass break sensor range using a neighbor's old windows, drop cloth and a hammer), claim that an invisible fence was causing issues (moving my base and sensors to a neighbor's house to borrow his electric fence and dog) to garage door transmitters (buy several on Amazon to test and drafting famly and neighbors equipped with them to "break into" my home. You can do the same.
Please post the outcome of your experiment(s) if you do it. Thanks!

It seems short people don't trigger until 10 ft. Tall people trigger around 20 ft. Too bad there is no line to see where the camera looking.
