I have several basic Arlo cameras mounted outside my house, and the cameras are sending me alerts every couple of minutes due to the windy day. I have turned the sensitivity down on the cameras, but any lower and it won't be able to pick up people walking up to my house.

I thought the sensors on these cameras were heat-sensing? Apparently not.

It's a real pain to have to shut the cameras off because of the wind.

Have a custom recording mode called Windy. Change to that when it's really windy. Either that or reposition your cameras so there are less trees and leaves etc in the FOV. Trees and leaves etc reflect a lot of IR, which triggers the PIR sensors

Thanks! I'll give that a try.
