I placed on garage to monitor front . ENDLESS alerts!  75 in one day.  I have fooled with the video scale but it's crazy.  I'm in and out of house all day as are cats / dogs / cars going buy.

2 things to try:

 

1) Make sure the camera is pointed down some so you're not monitoring the street.  Posting a link to a video or a screenshot would be helpful to get you more specific suggestions.

 

2) The zoom level won't help since the PIRs are not adjustable in any way.  It may be useful to lower the sensitivity level and/or set a schedule.  In that schedule, you could use multiple modes (one at a time, of course) that would set the sensitivity appropriately for the time of day. You could even leave a block of time blank so you could use live view but no automatic recording.
