Motion - Config Option Night Compensate

night_compensate

  • Type: Boolean
  • Range / Valid values: on, off
  • Default: off
  • Group: Obsolete

When this option is set the noise threshold will be lowered if the picture is dark. This will improve the sensitivity in dark places. However it might also increase the number of false alarms since most cameras also increase light sensitivity with their AGC (Automatic Gain Control) and this will increase noise. ( DEPRECATED )

It has normally been the advice not to use this with 'noise_tune' turned on. However the latest experience is that with the new improved noise_tune algorithm it actually works fine in combination with 'night_compensate'.
