Ring Flood Light Camera detecting vehicle headlights

My Flood Light camera has all of a sudden started recording when it notices vehicle headlights.  My motion sensitivity is set in the middle, and my motion zones for lights is set in the middle.  None of my motion zones are set for the street.

 

Any suggestions would be great!!

Re: Ring Flood Light Camera detecting vehicle headlights

Hey @Jeffrey! Thank you for sharing your experience with the Community.  With the Floodlight Cam having a 270 field of view and a 140 degree range for motion detection, there may be times where objects outside the zones will trigger the lights. We recommend minimizing these to the smallest zones if something is triggering it too often, as well as sensitivity. Of course, test what works best for you as every environment is different.

 

If it continues to pick up vehicles,  try physically angling the Floodlight Cam slightly differently. Let us know how this goes! Smiley Happy

Following all the headlight posts.  Same issue on Floodlight and Pro Doorbell.  Sensitivity is set down to people only on both.   I can try to adjust the Floodlight down.  Doorbell is flat or course.  Sensitivity helped the doorbell a little but not the Floodlight so far.  On a rainy night with reflection forget it.....they both go off with headlights clear across the street.

I've had the camera for way over a year and this problem has just started.  I don't think adjusting the camera in a different angle will help.  It picks the headlights up several houses away.  I've set the sensitivity lower with the same outcome.  I've attached 2 files showing that the cars are not at my house.  NONE of my zones go to near the street.

Ring_Camera_Right - in the picture the car is coming from the right and isn't even past my niegbors house.
Ring_Camera_Left - in this picture the car is coming from the left and is no where in sight, but the headlights have triggered my camera.
