camera motion detection

I have the current SimpliSafe system with the most current camera. In the iPhone app I am trying to isolate a portion of the camera view so that motion in that area is ignored. The wind moving my flag keeps providing false positive readings.

A call to the SimpliSafe help was a waste of time. Gee, nobody else is having this issue and when I pushed the person I spoke to said she would report it to Engineering. It has now been quite a while since I called and a) the problem still exists and b) nobody has gotten back to me with any kind of comment/resolution.

Is anyone else having the issue of false positives from the door bell camera? Unfortunately I can't send a screenshot of what I'm referring to

There is a setting in app for video doorbell that you can color out what you dont want to capture like i did as i was getting crazy alerts as well and now its perfect. Make sure the app is up to date then go in there and check it out.

We are having the same issue.   I have taken out the area where the flag is and it still gives false positives
