On front camera, it doesn’t record the person walking up the driveway. It starts recording when the person is under the camera and leaving. How do I get it to record when they are walking up the driveway

Hi @Donrotkopf


Do you have a screenshot of this viewing angle from your camera to review? The cameras detect motion best form a side to side motion rather than walking straight forward. I have attached an article that will shed more light on camera placement. How do I position my Arlo wire-free camera?
