Circle View Doorbell - trying to set up motion automation, but is motion detected non-stop?

Cupertino, January 30, 2021

I set up an automation for Soneria Circle View to respond to movement, but even with activity areas defined to areas where movement should be limited to humans or animals, I constantly see "motion detected" in the Home state. I want to do two things, turn on the headlights if motion is detected at night, and also send the HomePods sound with a sound file I created if it detects movement during the day. But it is so sensitive that it stops non-stop, obviously without people / animals present. Anyone have tips to reduce sensitivity? The area inside the activity areas is free of any free objects (such as leaves / flags / etc.) that would move with the wind, so it should be strictly limited to a person or animal that moves deliberate. It would be great if there was a way to access the recognition function, because the camera can obviously make the difference between a person, an animal and a vehicle.
