Alerting on Shadows

Anyone have suggestions on how to limit alerts that stem from shadow of tree moving in the wind in the view window?

You can try to adjust the sensitivity, or you can try ignore that area with a detection zone.

If that doesn’t work for various reasons, there are two wishlist items you can vote for:


Yes, the camera’s standard pixel motion detection is sensitive to anything that makes the live feed picture change.

I would recommend trying a PIR motion sensor (part of the sense series). As long as the shadows don’t create a noticeable change in surface heat, they should help quite a bit with shadows, tree branches, etc. You may need to block their view from other heat sources, like children next door, lawn mowers, and cars of the street, though.
