I have trees and plants near my front door. I have set Webcam Monitor for motion detection viewing outside my front door with a sensitivity level of 30%. This works fine at night times but I am having problems with the day time creating a lot of alarms. It seems like the trees are causing the most of the alarms. How can I reduce the false alarms?

You need to use WebCam Monitor's masking feature. Position the mask to cover the area on the camera preview with the trees. This will reduce or eliminate the problem of false alarms.
