Cameras keeps detecting spiders and cats as "people"

I set up my motion zones and have them only send me alerts at night- this is important because once my ring actually caught a guy trying to break into my car and the push notification alerted me. But like 99% of the time the push alerts, which wake me up at night on vibrate, say “person detected” when it’s just a spider, or a cat. Is there anyway to fix this? What’s the point of this feature if it thinks all motion is a person? My heart sinks every time I see “person detected” and have to wait a full minute for the ring to open and show me that it’s anything but a person. I don’t want to turn the notifications off, as it did actually catch someone attempting to break into my car. But it’s making me so anxious the rest of the time. I saw a clip of a ring video once that showed an alert for “package detected” but I can’t find that setting anywhere, seems like it would be useful. Any tips??

Hi @Sarahhjaneyy. I would recommend adjusting two Motion Settings to see if it helps. First, would be to check that Person is the only option turned on in your Smart Alerts. Second, lower your Motion Sensitivity. Keep in mind that even with these adjustments, the Camera can still detect other objects at times, like bugs that are close to your Camera. It will help make it so that it does not happen as frequently. As for Package Alerts, this Help Center article here has more information on the feature. I hope this helps.
