Where did HAL's eye go in Sentry Cam?

Where did HAL's eye go in Sentry Cam?

I noticed that HAL's eye has disappeared from the screen while Sentry Cam is active. Anyone know what happened to it? Thanks.

I think it only appears when it detects a threat. The rest of the time the screen is off to save energy.

Also, it's the eye of Mordor....haha

"Also, it's the eye of Mordor"

That would be a totally great config choice!

Especially if it whipped around in the direction from which the car detected the threat.

that would be brilliant!

It could use face detection to put the perps picture on the screen.

@Atom12: I like your suggestion. Also display a caption, "video being recorded to cloud". (not true but will cause self-doubt in miscreants).

Now putting the peeps face on it would be quite the deterrent.

Eye of Mordor tracking the the perp is brilliant! Showing the actual video is not a good idea IMO - just provides a training tool on how to avoid getting ID'd (which cameras to spray paint before breaking in). Knowing that they are being observed but not knowing by which or how many cameras would be the best deterrent.

I like the idea of perp's face, but I would also like to be able to customize a message that would be on the screen.

Hal’s still there but it doesn’t seem to be as sensitive as it was before. I actually wondered if Hals eye would be protected by copyright law. Guess not
