AIOTO Go is equipped with a loop recording function. The earliest files will always be overwritten by new ones if the SD card capacity is full.
How does AIOTO GO store the video?
It will show the videos or pictures for 30 days and pre-scheduled event videos or pictures, which you are able to adjust yourself in the settings. You can watch event videos or pictures via our app. Once you have seen them, it will be stored in an album on the app or within the mobile album.
The SD card will also store a copy of any event, pre-scheduled video, or picture.
What is the PIR sensor?
The PIR sensor (passive infrared sensor) is used to detect motion. The AIOTO GO PIR sensor with a 90° detection angle can discover movements up to 33 feet far away.
You can adjust the PIR sensitivity from within the app’s setting function.
How will I be notified when PIR is detected?
Our app will send you a notification when AIOTO GO detects any motion whether it be a human, vehicle, or an animal. You can preview a snapshot before deciding if you would like to watch or download the full video or picture.
You can turn on/off PIR notifications from within the app’s settings at any time. If you choose to turn off notifications, video and images will still be recorded and viewable within your event history for 30 days.
Additionally, you can set up your notifications to alert you for any particular objects you would like to detect (such as a human/vehicle/animal).
How long will the camera record when motion is detected? And if there's still movement, will it immediately start recording again?
The camera records once motion is detected until the motion stops or reaches the maximum recording time, whichever occurs first. The maximum recording time is configurable from 5 seconds to 15 seconds.
The camera will start recording immediately if movement continues after the most recent recording.
How quickly can the camera detect motion and start recording?
The system is able to detect motion with body heat immediately and starts recording within 0.5 seconds.
What’s the range of the motion detector sensor?
Depending on the height and angle, the sensor can detect moving objects as far as 25-30ft (8-10m) away.
Is the system able to set up “detection zones”?
Yes. With our AIOTO Go App, you can customize your detection zones.
Does the camera include built-in footlights and a siren?
Yes. The camera has both built-in footlights and a siren. In addition to the PIR sensor, the device can also easily detect if it has been moved or touched via a G-sensor and it will activate the siren, notifying the user immediately.
Does the system offer a 24/7 recording option?
No. The camera is powered by a battery and thus this would not be efficient for its battery life. We’ve designed AIOTO GO to offer a solid balance between a sustained battery life and live event capture. With motion detection, human detection, and face recognition, the system can detect and capture most important events and eliminate unnecessary alerts, such as passing cars and small animals. This increases efficiency while reducing intrusive alerts.
What can I do to troubleshoot the camera if an error occurs? For example, if it won’t turn on, it stops operating, the image changes colors, or an image becomes out of shape?
If the device is not operating normally, please try to hold the start button for 5-6 seconds and then release it in order to reset the device to its default settings. If the device can’t be turned on, please connect it to an external power supply.
Does the camera’s settings allow adjustments to its focus, auto zoom, or distance?
The device allows for adjustment of the digital focus but does not have an auto zoom function. During the daytime, there is no shooting distance limit but at night it does have a shooting limit of up to 25 feet (8 meters).
Does the camera come with an LED status indicator? If so, what is the meaning of each indicator?
The camera does come with an LED status indicator; please refer to the details below.
What is the minimum level that activates the Lux illumination, and the camera begins to use infrared photography?
The infrared photography will start and activate night vision when the minimum illumination is below 0.5 Lux.
What is the size of the image sensor chip and the brand?
We use a Sony image sensor chip and the size is type 1/2.8.
Is it capable of real-time streaming?
Yes, the device is supported as a real-time streaming service.
Will the camera detect cars and animals?
In most cases, the camera can capture motion from both cars and animals. When the Motion Sensor (PIR sensor) detects motion and heat from a moving object, it triggers the camera to start recording. According to our research, a car’s exhaust or the body heat emitted by many animals is usually around 97.7°F (36.5°C) or higher, which can trigger the camera and their motion will be captured. Users can choose to exclude cars or animals from detection by changing the “AI Detection” option to “Humans Only”, so unwanted recordings and notifications can be reduced.
How do I setup AI detection?
You can adjust motion detection, with motion zones and objects, by clicking on the AI detection setting within the app.
What kind of object can be detected by AI?
The camera can detect humans, cars and animals. You are also able to select specific and multiple options.
How do I set up the motion detection zone?
By clicking on the little dots in the four corners, you can draw and specify your chosen area for motion detection in the camera view. The system gives more customization options by letting you draw up to three areas in the camera view that will detect motion. You can set up a different motion detection object in each area.
Is AIOTO GO easy to steal?
The system comes with a screw-mounted base. We recommend that you install the camera by using the screw-mounted base for security. The anti-theft function will be triggered if the camera is moved without disarming it first, and the siren on the camera will go off.
