Hi @gmduregger , 

The Motion Sensor was designed with pets in mind! For smaller pets like cats, we recommend that you place your Motion Sensor with the test button on top, and install it 6-10 feet off the ground to prevent false alarms. You can learn more by watching the video here in our Help Center.
