receiving alerts during night when light passing through camera view

I have set the arlo camera to view our front door. It works fine during the day but it constantly trips at night when the light from a cars headlight pass through its view. I have set up the Zone so the light does not pass through it and set the sensitivity a 3 and it still trip everytime a car passes by.

The IR strength of the headlights is probably too strong for the zones to filter out. The only solution that I can think of is to try to tilt the camera so the street is no longer in view of the camera.

Q cameras don't react to IR like the wireless cameras. I suspect that there may be reflections going on that cause this and/or just the extreme contrast (black background vs bright lights) causing this. Try turning the sensitivity down more in your modes.
