Pro 2 camera in side of my house with very little activity needs to be recharged every 2-3 weeks. Other cameras with higher activity over a month. Have motion detection light in same area. Do I change sensitivity? Please provide thoughts. Thanks

Spec battery life is for <5 minutes per day of recording and live viewing. What is your usage? Also, swap cameras areound to see if it's the camera or location. Make sure the settings in your modes are the same.

How do I determine usage? I only know how often I need to recharge

Add up the total number of seconds/minutes of recording. Estimate your live viewing. See if the total is >5 minutes on a regular basis.

Moved camera from back to front. Back is now at 100% with 1 view. Front is at 64% with over 10 minutes. Do I change angle or sensitivity. Thank.

Howm many total minutes of recording and live viewing per day for each camera? Maybe screenshots of the camera views would be useful. Sensitivity should be generally turned down to avoid false triggers while still capturing needed motion.
