I have connect the Arlo Video Doorbell to my base station and I the activities zones is not working at all.

 

this have as results to get a lot of motions alerts because some cars passing by from the street that I do not want to see at all.

 

I suspect that the alarm is coming from the the mode settings that says "if arlo doorbell  detect motions" and there the motion is not take care of the activity zones

I use a zone that eliminates the street and also reduced the motion sensitivity in my modes and rules to 35. I still get people walking up the sidewalk while minimizing the false triggers from cars.

I would say don't bother with activity zones at this point.  It hasn't worked for over a year for me now, despite paying the monthly fee.  Installed Ring video doorbell cams and a floodlight security cam on a rental property of mine and its activity zones work perfectly.  Will be replacing all 5 of my Arlo cams at home soon.  No longer worth the headaches.

 

As Arlo seems to like to delete posts that are unfavorable to their products, I will certainly be keeping an eye of my messages.
