Question

Why does my FloodCam come on by itself?

Answer

An object within the view of the motion sensor that becomes heated by the sun, or is itself heated somehow (i.e., car engine, heat vent) can generate false motion detection. It is best to mount the motion sensors so that they are looking slightly downward to avoid being triggered by sunlight.

Also, any X10 ON command at the House and Unit code of the FloodCam will turn it on. Make sure that you do not have any other X10 motion sensors set to the same House and Unit code as the FloodCam.
