Some users may be bothered by the short battery life.which primarily depends on how long the camera is actively operating. Below, we've outlined potential reasons for poor battery performance along with corresponding solutions. If you're experiencing this issue, please check each point below for troubleshooting.
To understand this, let's delve into how motion detection functions. When the PIR sensor detects a change in the surrounding environment, it triggers the camera to start recording. Such changes can include movement, alterations in lighting, fluctuations in temperature, among others. Common instances of false triggers encompass instances like trees swaying due to wind, direct sunlight hitting the camera's front surface, or the cool airflow from an air conditioning unit.
Usually, for a fully charged camera, without regard to other factors, and the video resolution is SD, the camera can continuously capture
3000~3500 10-second videos with a5000mAh/5200mAhbattery,
4000 10-second videos with a6700mAhbattery,
6000~7000 10-second videos with a9000mAhbattery.
And assume that the camera records 20 10-second videos per day, if only considering video recording and network connection power usage (with good wifi signal), without regard to other factors, it can last
2~5 months(Capacity: 5000mAh/5200mAh)
2~6 months(Capacity: 6700mAh)
3~8 months(Capacity: 9000mAh)
Undoubtedly, real-life scenarios can be more intricate. If your camera struggles to maintain a charge for an extended period, employing the following methods to minimize motion detection might help address the issue.
To make the camera work longer, please avoid opening the live stream for a long time.
If the camera's Wi-Fi connection is poor or unstable, it will keep actively searching for the network thus the battery will drain fast.
Please try to place your camera as close to the Wi-Fi router as possible. Thick walls, bricks, ceramics, electromagnetic devices, a large amount of liquid, and large metal objects may interfere with Wi-Fi signals. Please try to avoid these objects. If it still does not work, you may need to use a better Wi-Fi router or a Wi-Fi extender.
Extremely cold weather will reduce battery life
The camera's operation temperature is -10°~45°C. Please do not place the camera in an extremely cold environment.
Enabling 'Night Vision' prompts the camera to switch into night mode when the ambient light falls below a certain threshold (sensitivity level). This feature enhances the camera's performance in low-light conditions. However, it's important to note that utilizing night vision will result in increased battery consumption.
To reduce battery consumption, you can tap the camera "setting" icon > tap "Lighting Setting" > tap "Light Sensitivity Level" and set it to "Low" or "Medium". After doing that, it is not easy for the camera to enter night vision when it is still very bright.
