I cant mount any outside camera's there for.. reasons. Instead, pending I get some sort of tensor flow object recognition working, I have a mounted a PIR sensor to my letter box, which sends an RF signal that I receive with a sonoff bridge, which feeds it in to HA which sends an MQTT to BI and starts recording. Works fine - except in summer when its too hot and the PIR sensor sends non stop signal. Not sure yet how that will work when its freezing.

But that doesnt mean triggering on bottom of an object isnt something that should be added to BI, it can not be hard to implement and its going to help a lot of people in a variety of situations. IN fact I cant think of a situation where the center of an object would be more meaningful than the bottom (ie, ground).

I'd suggest contacting support. Maybe Ken can help.
