Re: motion fails to record all movement

The few times I messed with the sensitivity in BI it seemed to make motion detection worse, I'd try resetting those settings to factory and see if it works better.

Re: What info to enter for Weather Underground link

I've not had a problem with those same settings, I recently cloned my weather camera and setup an FTP connection to ambientweather.net for my weather stations camera there as well so that camera is sending updates to both FTP servers frequently.
