Reduced motion sensitivity

Turned OFF camera activated by turned ON camera. (Arlo Pro 2)

I was having lots of trouble stopping alerts with a long driveway and trees moving in the wind.

At the top of the driveway I positioned the turned ON camera so it did not see any tree movement but could detect a car but not its number plate.

I turned the cameras further down the driveway OFF which eliminated all motion detection.

The ON camera detected motion and activated the OFF cameras to start recording for 30 seconds.

100% elimination of tree motion alerts but full video capture of vehicles or people from the OFF cameras.

 To set the sequence for the turned off cameras go to Armed, Edit Mode, Rules, Edit (The cameras turned off), Then do the following, Record video, set one of the two recording time options.

Good Luck
