Does your ADT camera not recording clips? We know how frustrating it can be to rely on your camera for security and it fail to record important moments. Fortunately, there are few things you can do to fix this issue, so don’t worry! This Guide will cover the most common causes of this issue and how you can fix them.
Why is My ADT Camera Not Recording Clips?
ADT camera is not recording clips? Don’t worry; it happens to the best of us. The truth is ADT cameras don’t always record clips when they should. And that’s not a good thing.
That is why you need to know how to check your cameras manually and view the live feed. Here are some reasons why your ADT camera is not recording clips:
The ADT camera may not record clips if motion detection is not enabled or its too low:
- All the cameras are designed such that; they can only record when there is a movement. The camera will not record clips if motion detection is not enabled or the sensitivity is set to low.
- The sensitivity determines how sensitive the camera’s sensor to detect any motion. If it is very sensitive, it will start recording even if there is a slight movement in front of it.
- But, on the other hand, if it detects even a slight movement, it will start recording, and you will have plenty of videos saved in your library.
- It takes time to go through all those videos, so it’s better to set the sensitivity such that only important movements are detected and recorded by your camera.
The ADT camera may not record clips because the object size is not set correctly. The Object Size setting determines which objects are detected by the camera. If the setting is too low, it will not detect any people or vehicles in the field of view. The camera must be able to detect these objects to trigger a recording.
There could be other reasons, like power problems, WiFi issues, and lack of storage space. A few common reasons why this might be happening can also be:
- Power problems: Is there power going to the device? If not, plug in the power adapter. If there’s still no power, contact us at [phone number] or [email].
- WiFi issues: Is your WiFi working? If not, try restarting your modem/router. If that doesn’t work, contact your WiFi provider. If that doesn’t work, contact us at [phone number] or [email].
- Lack of storage space: Are there any clips in your account? If not, delete some old clips so you can make room for new ones. Or delete all of them if you don’t want any more recordings. In order to delete a clip from the app, click on it and select “Delete Clip.” This will free up space for new recordings!
