You can configure the Camera Area on your Ignite Indoor/Outdoor Camera (Wired)TM or Ignite Doorbell Camera (Wired)TM to restrict motion events to a defined field of view and cut down on unnecessary notifications.

Setting the Camera Area

The camera area can be set for each individual camera in the settings menu. This is helpful if your camera has a busy road or sidewalk in view that you don't want notifications from.
