An activity event wasn't detected by my Hive View or Hive View Outdoor, how do I resolve this?

If you know that an activity event took place but you do not see it in your event log, it could be because of one of the following: - If the event took place very recently and straight after a previous event, it may be that the information has not reached the Hive app yet as the previous event information is still being uploaded. The time to upload can depend on the type of event and the network your phone is currently connected to. - Your camera monitoring is off. You can change this using the shield icon under your viewing pane. - Detection is not enabled for your Hive View or Hive View Outdoor. You can check this by following these steps: 1. Head to your Hive app and log-in if needed using your username and password 2. Select the camera you wish to view from the dashboard 3. Select the “Settings” icon and go to the “Detection” section 4. Check that either motion or person are selected and/or sound detection is toggled on. 5. Select "Save" if needed - The sensitivity settings for your motion or sound detection are too low to have detected the event in question. Follow the steps above and check the sensitivity setting for both 'Motion' and 'Sound'. - Notifications are not enabled for your Hive View or Hive View Outdoor. You can check this by following these steps: 1. Head to your Hive app and log-in if needed using your username and password 2. Select the camera you wish to view from the dashboard 3. Select the “Settings” icon and go to the “Notifications” section 4. Toggle “Notifications” on/off 5. When on: choose whether to receive by push, email or SMS (you require Hive Live or Hive Video Playback Membership for SMS) and set a schedule (optional) 6. Select “Save” if needed - Notifications are set up for push only and you have not enabled permissions to receive push notifications from the Hive app in your phone's settings. See your phone manufacturer's instructions for information on how to allow this. - Angle of the camera. Person detection on your Hive View outdoor camera works best when the angle between the wall and the line of sight of the camera is between 45° and 90°. If your camera has missed a person detection, please reposition the camera so that the angle between the camera and the wall is not too steep. If all of this is set up correctly but your camera didn't capture it, consider the following:
• Check the event is not part of another recording. The event log will capture the event that triggered the camera to begin recording. If another event happens during this recording, it will be captured as part of that recording but not listed as a new event. • Check the view of the camera definitely covers the area you believe activity took place in. If the motion/person was too close to the edges of the camera it may not pick them up • Check the activity occurred close enough to the camera. For person detection the person needs to be within 7m of the camera and at night all movement needs to be within 5m of the camera. • For person detection, the feature looks for things that look like a person's face, person's head and shoulders, or a full body of a person and if they are moving. If a person’s body is not moving or the position of the person means the camera cannot detect head and shoulders etc., then the person will not be detected • For motion detection, the accuracy of detection can be deteriorated due to the object featuring a colour or brightness that is similar to the background, multiple movements are continuously generated e.g. due to a cutaway, or a fixed object keeps moving in the same location
