Triggering motion detection when light is switched off

I wanted to set the camera to monitor a parking lot. I've set it up in my room first and ran a few tests on motion detection.

All worked fine except for one thing - whenever I turn the light off and the room suddenly goes dark it DOESN'T trigger motion detection (the opposite is not true: dark-]light triggers motion detection).

Thanks in advance.

By default, WebCam Monitor will not trigger motion when changes in the light are gradual. You can increase the motion detection sensitivity from the Tools ] Options ] Monitoring tab.

If your camera has a backlight compensation feature then turning this option off may also help. This option tries to compensate for changes in light and hence sometimes interferes with motion detection.

If the light is suddenly switched off then WebCam Monitor will detect motion.
