Motion Detection Option - Pixel based or PIR for Arlo Ultra

With the large field of view of the Ultra camera the motion detection range of the PIR is a real limitation in many scenarios. It would be great to have the option to use pixel based detection (accepting this option also has some compromises). For example I am unable to cover the entrance to my house, garden gate and garage door within the PIR range, but the camera field of view easily covers all of these areas. I was previously using Manything (which uses pixel based detection) and despite the excellent hardware of the Ultra camera, the Manything functionality as a security camera far exceeds the Ultra in this respect.
