STOP THAT DAD GUM RINGING ON MY PHONE!

I have a camera on the outside of my garage that covers a large area of my yard, PLUS the street (which is very busy).  Every time someone drives by or walks by the camera, my phone sends me a "ding" to alert me.  These dings are very irritating because they go off constantly.  How can I stop them from dinging?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

@weakley1 As Dlpsr mentioned, turning off notifications for your camera or silencing SimpliSafe's notifications will help.

If you don't want your camera to pick up on the cars that drive past your house at all, it could also be helpful to set up Activity Zones to exclude your camera from detecting any motion on the street. This can be done in the SimpliSafe mobile app by going to the three bar menu icon on the top left corner > My System > Camera Settings > select [your Outdoor Camera] > Motion Detection. Then, under Activity Zones, select any boxes on the street and save your settings.

Thank you so much for your information!  If think I will finally get some peace now!  And as far as my comment "dad gum" goes, I'm probably old enough to be your mother, so there ya go!  I am a Christian woman so I try to be nice in how I say things!
