Hello. I have a number of cameras outside not connected to AC Power. The problem I have is that swaying leaves and moving shadows (I guess) cause motion detection hundreds of times per day. This is a real pain.! I have reduced detection sensitivity to 50% and tried to set up zones to minimise the false alarms but I believe zones will not work in battery mode. even though I can set them up in battery mode. Again - what a Pain! This is not satisfactory, so has anybody any solution please? Steve

My outside cameras are set to 70 or 80 sensitivity.  They do not alert excessively like that.  The cameras use IR detectors, so they shouldn't false alarm that much.

 

Make sure audio detection is OFF.

 

If that doesn't help, you might need to reposition the cameras to avoid reflected sunlight and whatever else might be causing the excessive detections.

Thanks for that... but I cannot find anywhere to set Audio Detection to OFF... All I can find is Microphone Volume & Speaker Volume Bars. How can I turn Audio/Sound Detetion to OFF ??

If you subscribe to the $10 month plan, you can set zones and eliminate the leave triggers

For audio, go into mode, click on your armed then click the pencil next to the camera you want to turn the audio off on It will be there on the iOS app

Audio detection is on by default, so that's probably your issue.

 

Let us know if you turning audio detection OFF solves your issue.
