Hi, is there any way I can reduce the sensitivity of my cameras ? Every time we have a wind or rain the camera reacts, substantial eating away at the battery life.

thanks, Mickl4.

Yes...  but you need to either edit the mode you are arming with OR create a custom mode with a lower sense level.

If tweaking the sensitivity does not work, then you may have to point the camera to avoid things like trees waving in the wind.

 

You can also investigate Video Mode.
