Motion Sensor Shield

My sister’s son-in-law mounted a WYZE motion sensor over her house entryway. The sensor was picking up too much peripheral motion. He made a shield by cutting down a toilet paper core to 1.5” and painted it to match entryway color, to make it less prominent. This paper core fit very snuggly over the sensor; no adhesive needed. The core came from Costco Kirkland brand toilet paper. Some other brands do not work so well.

Is the purpose of the shield to obscure the sensor (i.e., hide it from casual view), or to limit it’s peripheral view to a narrow view?

Very smart!
