I have been testing the SmartThings Vision camera as a potential device for detecting a person sitting in a couch too long http://Samsung SmartThings Vision https://www.samsung.com/au/mobile-iot/smartthings-vision-u999/ While it does a great job of person detection, it works best with a full body view. At SDC19 the SmartThings representative said they count on 60% of the body. In my testing, the camera is not very good at detecting stationary persons, exhibiting the same characteristics as normal PIR motion sensors in that they are tuned to detect motion. In fact, my testing with combination PIR/RF sensors had the same characteristics. Here is a sample video https://youtu.be/EGd1hzdAFY8 Note that it does very well when I’m standing, fair when I’m sitting, as long as I kept moving, poor when I’m stationary
