Hi I bought the pro 3 a few weeks back
And have adjusted the active zone and sensitivity and other settings and my internet works well i have set up the cameras and can see my whole driveway when viewing it live however it doesn’t detect anything or anyone untill they are halfway down the drive way (is when it starts to record ) I would like it to detect and record from as soon as someone entrees the drive way i have adjusted all required setting …unless I’m missing something ?


What is the range on it ?

Also any other help to fix the issue would be greatly appreciated

Thanks all

Most of the Arlo cameras that use PIR to detect motion MAX out at the 25 ft range.....

Only the few cameras that use pixel detection ( Q series, Indoor Essential, Baby ) have a much greater range but are not slated for outdoor use

 

BUT, the Q and Essential Indoor will work thru glass windows ( PIR detectors do not ) and have a much better range.

My Q that looks thru double pane andersen window detects out to the street which is over 75 ft. ( but can not use night vision as it reflects back off glass )
