Using the camera positioning feature I zoom in on the area I wish to monitor and detect movement in but I can't save this zoom.  What do I do?  Even with motion detection sensitivity set to the lowest setting I am getting nuisance alerts.

I think you need activity zones or to adjust sensitivity to solve your problem.

i have tried to use activity zones, motion detection sensitivity and zoom but all 3 are ignored and the camera picks up all motion in its field of view.  Very frustrating considering the camera seems to have the built in smarts to do what I want!!

Positioning zoom isn't save-able. Use Pan and Zoom to do that. However, the PIR sensor picks up the whole FOV and can't be changed - the video itself is just being cropped. That's where the zones come in with Smart - the camera records and ships off the video for post=processing by the servers. That's where the determination for notification is made, depending on how you have the camera Smart settings configured for People, Vehicle, Animal and Other Motion.
