Where to set up Outdoor Camera Settings?

I just got a new system 2023 and I do not see where you can set "people oniy" or set up "activity zones" for the outdoor cameras.  I have three, but the one over the front entry, watching the front yard, picks up cars and people on the sidewalk and sends motion alerts.   Where do you set up "people only" or activity zones?   I see nothing under the "devices" or "cameras" that mentions these features.

Hi @drcorbin44 ,

Thanks for choosing SimpliSafe! You can find settings for the Outdoor Camera, including motion detection options, in the SimpliSafe app under: Menu > My System > Camera Settings > [you camera's name].

I have an indoor camera .... Is it possible to set up any motion detection options on these cameras like those for the outdoor camera, e.g., poeple only, or a specific region in the field of view [like nest cameras do]?

We live in an area with lots of thunderstorms and my camera watches an area in the living room covering the windows /doors leading to outside and also the room itself.   We haven't hit thunderstorm season yet this year, but I can see it might trigger motion alerts with bigger lightning flashes or rustling vegetation.
