Motion sensor with e-mail notification

I currently have several POE cameras on property and they have built in motion detection with e-mail or SMS notification. However, they are very prone to false alarms.

I would like to incorporate another solution. My thought was something that if you "cross" the line/path it would detect and send an alert? I guess something similar to the concept of a garage door opener sensor. Anything along those lines anyone can recommend?

ELK M1 Gold. Connected to myServer for the notifications. I can't remember if the ELK will send an email on it's own.
I am sure there are simpler solutions, but that's how we do it.
