Security to the Max?

I seem to be having issues with Sentry settings. It appears to be so sensitive that if I park within one space of a cart return at the grocery my alarm triggers. Not every once in a while, I mean five or six times while I’m in the store. I can only assume it’s a combination of sound and movement. Viewing the videos don’t show anyone even really getting close to the car.

I don’t like the idea of turning it off, but i don’t like it going off all the time either. Any ideas?
Change where you park. I never park close to the cart corral, I stay away from it to avoid roaming carts from hitting my MY. I always park further away and uphill, and walk a bit extra to avoid that kind of stuff. Then if sentry is going off, I know it is less likely to be a false alarm and more likely to be a curious busybody.

DaveORD that is a good solution that I will apply when I can. However, I am faced with using wheelchair parking at times for my passenger. I did have one instance of multiple alarms simply because of the number of people walking by.

Too bad there isn’t a way to adjust the sensitivity.
