Home Mode

by jasoncheesemanuk » Tue Jul 24, 2018 11:54 pm

I've recently switched over from Synology Surveillance Station as their detection algorithm is average at best and trying to find where something has changed in the footage (i.e. box stolen from porch) is terrible (you can only search in real-time).

However, they've introduced a feature called Home Mode

https://www.synology.com/en-global/know ... /home_mode

It allows the user to use Geofencing on his/her mobile phone - set a distance around the home - and setup different notifications, recording on/off etc.

I have a number of cameras inside and outside of my home. I'd like to make sure that notifications stop when I'm in the home, but recording continues on the outside cameras but internal cameras are turned off. And then when I leave, they are all activated again.

Hello,

Sighthound Video does not have ay geolocation services that will turn on/off cameras due to proximity. This is a manual process that you can do on your mobile device. We do apologize for any inconvenience here. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns, thank you!

Regards,
-Kevin

It was under "feature request". I know you don't have it at the moment. Perhaps you could look at incorporating it in your next release. Software like "Security Spy", "Synology Security Station", "Blue Iris" all support geo fencing.

I had used their security cameras before and they were good at their price range. I had to write an essay for my college and I didn't have a clue how to write it. I was searching online for Essay Maker and then my friend told me to visit studyclerk online website and I gave them my requirements for the essay. I loved their services and would recommend it to everyone.

Hey BOB126... do you like spiced pork shoulder from Hormel Foods, Inc., of Austin MN? You know, that tasty treat known as SPAM.

i think this could be done very simply using macro.
example
set up rule for your garage door region for leaving and another for entering,
in site hound video there is a option to trigger a command
the command would be to trigger your macro.exe
macro record key strokes.
example, make 1 macro lets say at-home
now record your self shutting off cameras inside the house
the macro will record what key strokes your doing,
once done press end macro, now you will have a file called at-home.EXE
now in site hound video set the command to trigger at-home.EXE on the rule called entering garage door,
once you enter threw the garage door the command will run the at-home.EXE and turns off inside camera,
you dont need site hound video to do this all so, you can make macro set to run by putting in the time, 8 am set macro im leaving turn on all cameras,
6 pm turn off inside camera.
you can find macro software but if you want a good one you can customize
its made by autohot key called auto hot key writer, if you dont code then go to there forum and ask for help there really good at helping, lets say my wife comes threw the garage door and i need another way to have only me trigger it, put 2 boundary up high on your garage wall and have 1 for entering and leaving and wave your hand over the one you want site hound to trigger,
have it send you a email message if you want to make sure it got triggered.

if you use auto hot key which is freeware have it shut down the exe file once done or it will stay running on both files
at-home.EXE
Leaving-home.EXE
i have not tried it but you may need to trigger the .EXE threw site hound using .bat extension
if it cant trigger .EXE extension

if you want to get a little crazier this should work
https://www.dwvac.com/
i think you can link it to site hound command option
or or link it to autohotkey macro
or just use it by it self, activate your cameras on or off using your voice.

its a voice command app,
just talk and say >turn off inside home cameras.
it will do what you say.
or
talk and say >turn off inside home cameras in 10 minutes.
you can set timers on it all so
read threw it good because you do need to train it to recognize your voice threw speech recognition.

i was thinking about if it would work on my ptz camera controller software which i dont see why it wouldn't.
example, talk to it and say Turn right, the ptz camera should turn right.
the ptz controller work by clicking or how long the button is pressed down on a click
the dwvac has them options

Hello,

These are very interesting points. I'll pass it over to our Product Manager since he will have the final say as to what features we are looking to add. Again, thank you for your feedback. We welcome any and all suggestions.
