What's the best outdoor motion detector alarm?

I need an outdoor motion sensor that sets off my house alarm accurately. I tried a Yolink sensor, but it still triggers false alarms every three nights, which is too often. My Ring video doorbell Pro 2 is perfect; it doesn’t give false alarms or trigger from animals. I need a product with the same accuracy. Any suggestions for motion sensors? Or should I just buy another Ring outdoor camera to use as a motion sensor? Remember, false alarms wake me and my neighbors up at night.

For accurate outdoor motion detection with minimal false alarms, consider the Ring Outdoor Motion Sensor, Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera, Eufy Security Floodlight Cam 2 Pro, Google Nest Cam Outdoor, or Reolink Argus 3 Pro. These options use advanced technology to differentiate between people and other movements. Alternatively, another Ring outdoor camera, like the Stick Up Cam Battery or Floodlight Cam, would integrate seamlessly with your existing setup. Adjust sensitivity settings, define activity zones, and maintain sensor lenses to further reduce false alarms.

Also, adjusting the sensitivity settings on your motion sensors can significantly reduce false alarms. By fine-tuning these settings, you can ensure that only relevant movements trigger alerts. Defining specific activity zones within the camera’s field of view is another effective strategy; it helps focus the detection on critical areas and avoids triggering from irrelevant zones. Regular maintenance of the sensor lenses is essential too; keeping them clean and free from obstructions like spider webs or foliage can prevent false triggers. Hence, these combined measures will enhance the accuracy and reliability of your motion detection system, ensuring you and your neighbors are not disturbed by unnecessary alarms.

Ring Alarm Pro is just the best overall
