Motion Detection sensitivity

Add a feature that allows us to see what sensitivity levels are being hit when recordings take place.
I am forever struggling to adjust the sinsitivity of the camers on the outside of my house.

When a recording is made it wouldbe good to know what sinsitivty % was hit so I can tell what level a tree moving in the wind vs a car driving down the street vs a person walking along th epath is and fine tune it.

I know I can sort of do this in the motion detection test but I then have to be outside where I can see the blue led and wait for these actions to occur, very hard to reproduce!

Would be good to see the actual % number stored alongside the recording that was made, and even better the realtime percentage during the whole recording length.
I regularly get a recording of someone pulling up in a car but once they stop and the person gets out the recording stops. So obviously I need to up the setting to get that person walking but by how much? Trial and error is infuriating..
