I have a new Pro 3 system. I keep getting a false notification for animals.
I bought the Pro 3 because we have nuisance animals (mostly deer) that I would like to scare off with the siren and the light.

Removed tree branch blowing into camera. Created an activity Zone to eliminate extraneous areas of motion. Working better now.

Hi @Phoney49

 

Have you tried rebooting the camera or removing it from Settings > My Devices > Re-Add it?

 

What objects are the cameras classifying as an animal?
