Why is my Cam Pan v2 fascinated with ceiling fans?

The man reason we have the cams at all is to keep track of our dog. So my motion detection is low to the bottom of the viewable area. However, if someone walks in and goes towards the direction of the ceiling fan, the cam will follow them there and then because it can’t see them anymore, it stays fixated on the ceiling fan. Is there a way to avoid this?

It would be nice if there was a way to ignore that detection.

Hello @rob202,
My guess is the fan is on when the camera becomes fixated on it. This is because the camera uses pixel differentiation to look for movement. It sees the fan blades moving and fixates on them.
