Smartthings camera

Just a quick question. Does the smartthings camera motion detect through glass?

I believe it is using passive infrared motion detection which will have problems detecting motion through windows, particularly double and triple pane.

I just didn’t know for sure if it used pixel movement or am actual motion sensor. I was afraid of that.

If you are using a hub you should be able to use an external motion detector to trigger the camera. I’ve done that with a couple of my Arlo cameras to extend the detection range and record motion that normally would be detected by them.


if you can change the detection area, then its pixel based and works through glass (my dlink cameras do)
