Masking car in detection zone doesnt stop alerts

I am using a wyze cam v3 pro which looks like it has already gone extinct. I have had wyze cams for years. I pay for the cam plus. I have my car in the driveway, I have set the detection zone to mask the car but if I select vehicle in notifications it flags every movement in the alert zone as a vehicle because of the existing car in the driveway. Is there a setting I am missing.

I believe the way Motion Detection works is when you mask a grid Wyze will not look for motion in that grid area. But AI will examine everything in view which I believe is why a stationary vehicle will still get tagged as vehicle

That was my thought as well but I was hoping they had considered that possibility in their code.

Do you need Vehicle detection on? I only need and use Person detection for Notifications.

yeah, because the new camera doesnt recognize people at night but it does cars.

ok funniest part is after wyze ai has been reading this chat I see a bunch of other chats with same issue.
at least that ai works

They did. Some time ago Wyze changed their AI Engine to ignore obects that are within the Excluded area of the Detection Zone. Where this comes into question, however, is when their “Overlap” logic comes into play.

Regardless of if the object is behind the Excluded area or not, when the video goes to the AI Engine, all objects are “marked” within the FOV. This is done by drawing an imaginary digital Cartesian rectangle (2 dimensions, X & Y axis only, no diagonals) around the object much the same way the green Motion Tracking box is drawn by the cam. If any portion of that imaginary Cartesian rectangle is touching any portion of the Included DZ, everything within that box is fair game for tagging even if the vast majority of the object (if not all of it) is behind the Excluded DZ. This is their Overlap Logic.

While your Exclusion zone may be blocking out the physical vehicle, it may not be blocking out the imaginary Cartesian rectangle drawn by the AI Engine.

I had the same issue I reported this months ago and nothing
