I was in the driveway and used the mobile iPhone app to arm the system into ‘away’ mode.
About 30 seconds later, the central station calls me asking if everything is ok. I said yes, disarmed the alarm and went on my way. I had just made it out of the driveway & didn’t have time to go back in the house.
After getting home several hours later, I see it was the ‘kitchen image sensor’ that went off. I know there was no one / nothing in the house at the time.
I received notifications about new images being uploaded by the IS via email that were never uploaded or even taken. The alarm triggered one of my cameras (as it should) and I have 5 clips.
1) 1410 - 54s 2) 1411 - 11s 3) 1411 - 18s 4) 1412 - 45s 5) 1413 - 36s
The clips should all be over 30 seconds long and total 5 minutes according to my settings.
Even if the alarm was shut off before the 5 minutes, I’d expect the later recordings to be short. But the first two are only 11s and 18s.
I don’t know what made the IS go goofy and will probably never find out. I tried unsuccessfully to recreate the alarm. Aren’t the image upload alert and video recording lengths a bit odd?
I’m thinking a magic beam of light shone in and bounced off of my shiny floor (cause I clean it all the time) at the perfect angle to flash the sensor, thus making it go crazy.
What say you?
