I installed a Wyze Cam Pan outside of our front door but I found that it was sending too many false motion alerts for everything from the leaves blowing on our tree to cars passing by on the street and people walking by on the sidewalk.
So I paired it up with a motion sensor, turned off all alerts on the camera, and used only the sensor to send smart video alerts to the camera. This helped a little bit, but it was still picking up traffic and people on the sidewalk, which I didn’t want. Then I tried this little hack and it worked like a charm.
I covered the top of the sensor with gaffer’s tape (which is flexible, weatherproof, and removable) as shown in the pic. After a little trial and error I found the perfect sweet spot which was about 60% covered. Now the sensor only picks up motion on our property, not the street or sidewalk.
