One of my cameras records for about 45 secs everytime it goes off (which is good to save battery) However sometimes usually when I pull into my driveway and get out of my truck to walk inside this same camera records for 4 to 5 mins long, I am not sure why it does this? This battery drains in about 2 weeks so it is becoming a pain. It only does it when I am walking inside which only takes me a few seconds so why does it record for an additional 4+ minutes any help on fixing this issue would be great :). Thank you

Hi @adgrayiv,


You might have set your video recording length to set as "record until motion stops," which goes up to 5 minutes. You can change the recording length to help conserve battery. You can read more here: How do I adjust Arlo video recording length?
