Too many videos of grass and shrub motion detection from camera

I'm liking the system for the most part, but the redundant bandwidth usage is unacceptable. For example, yesterday alone I had 47 videos from the East camera and 20 from the West; all of them were taken of grass or shrubs blowing in the wind. Over the last 27 days , 8.7GB of data has been used as well as filling up a 16GB flash drive which seems excessive since none of the videos were of anything important. I bought this system for three times the price of the Blink XT in order to save bandwidth, but so far it uses 30x as much. What is a good sensitivity setting to keep it from recording wind but still record movement 10 feet away? I have three Blink XT cameras recording motion by the bunker and they don't have this issue, so I assume there's a setting somewhere I haven't found yet. Thanks in advance.

Sensitivity settings are in your modes and rules. Have you read the FAQs here on both setting sensitivity as well as best camera positioning?
