Re: Motion detection outside activity zone
I recently bought Arlo Pro3 cameras for my home. I have installed one camera in my driveway and selected three activity zones to minimize the number of false notifications I receive. The camera still keeps sending me notifications about motions detected outside the activity zone. So I get notifications about cars, people walking their pets, and so on, which is truly annoying.
Can somebody please help me with how to avoid these unwanted notifications?
Have you tried reducing the motion sensitivity in your modes and rules? I've found that the combination works reasonably well.
In addition, take the time to aim the camera to eliminate as much view as possible while still monitoring what you really need. Sky and street generally shouldn't be in the camera view for best results.
I have tried reducing the motion sensitivity to as low as 20 but I still get notifications about cars, and people passing outside the activity zones. I don't really see the activity zones working at all in my case. I can try rearranging the camera view to avoid street-view but the completely defies the purpose of the activity zones. I have created 3 zones to avoid any unnecessary notifications but only if it worked as expected. I am kind of disappointed with this.
I'm experiencing exactly the same issue, didn't have it with the Pro2 cameras. But after changing to a Pro3 Floodlight I get an issue with triggers outside of activity zones. Get's annoying!
