Question on outdoor camera
This is [email address censored] having an account with Simplisafe. Question on outdoor camera installed recently over my front driveway. The rechargeable battery was fully charged when installed a few days ago. It got completely drained in less than 3 days. I live in Stone Mill Estate community, in Mount Laurel, NJ, where the traffic is fairly light. The camera was pointing a bit further out than our front driveway, so it did pick up traffic motion as well as pedestrian motion. I am planning to have continuous a/c supply to the camera now, but I was baffled that a fully charged battery was completely drained in less than 3 days, especially as the total number of motion detection was not really high. My back yard camera is holding the charge well as there are very few motion triggers there. Do I need a firmware update on the camera or anything else that could do a finer tune on the hold of the battery charge? Granted, I am now planning on having continuous a/c supply on my front yard camera.
