I purchased 2 cameras and set them up wirelessly at front and back door. However I get about 100-200 notifications per day at work because the plants blow in the breeze and the camera's detect it. Completely defeats the purpose of these cameras. Why can't you set up detection zones on the camera when it is wireless? Because these get set off all day it becomes boy who cried wolf scenario, which is exactly what you don't need. Can someone help me, am I doing something wrong? Thanks.

Have you got Arlo Smart?

Otherwise, you should look at placement of the camera and sensitivity settings you're using

As mentioned above, placement is just as important as the proper sense level.

Thanks for the replies.
No I don't have Arlo Smart, I was hoping to avoid a subscription. I had the sensitivity at about 35, but at what point does it stop sensing anything?

That's what the motion detection test is for, to determine the lowest setting that gets what you need.

Even if you drop it all the way to 1, it'll still detect motion
