While I am not having a major problem with my newly installed system, there have been a few random false alarms due to strong winds and insects flying near the camera. In most instances we had the motion sensitivity set to the default setting of 80. We adjusted on one camera to 60 and that seemed to help. Is this the best solution to alleviate the false alarms at night?

Prob... But I always say to lower or raise your sense levels in small amount at a time...

 

You want the false triggers to go away but still want the best response for people.

 

( you could make two sets of custom modes ... I have a normal armed mode and a copy called "windy" , all same settings except sense levels for blowing bushes/trees )
