Have you tried to adjust the sense level higher ?

The only thing I see that I can increase is brightness , I just increased them all to 100%

Hi Dessino,

 

You can increase the sensitivity for your camera to see if that helps as TomMac mentioned. You can read here: How do I change the motion sensitivity on my Arlo camera?

 

Otherwise, feel free to read this article to learn how to optimize motion detection for your Arlo camera: How do I optimize motion detection for my Arlo camera?

Plug it in.  My driveway camera had the very same problem (motion directly towards camera does not get picked up very well, the nature of this particular  technology ) Once it’s running on a/c power it has the 3 second preview. My system if great now. Plus, I have a spare battery. Cost of the charger is less than a new battery.
