white shapes keep appearing on camera

Post by xoda » 17 Jan 2016, 10:27

I've noticed something very strange appearing on my Netatmo Welcome camera.
I'm away from home, and all the blinds are drawn (which means there shouldn't be any reflection). But these white shapes keep appearing on the video, and I get a "motion detected" alert every time. What are they? Is the camera malfunctioning?

Here's one of the videos:

Perhaps a flying dust ?

I have nearly the same ones every minute but smaller. I think they are dusts passing very close to the camera lens and illuminated by the IR.
My Welcome is just below a heat pump air conditionner split that could explain the flying dusts but no motion detection in my case.
The best workaround to solve this flying bug ? Clean our houses !!! ;-)

Have something the infrared sending signals?
I have a vacuum cleaner which is based on infrared. From which I can see in the night mode, the beams.
