the model number isn't in list above, it's VMS4230-100NAS.

My issue is with motion detection sensitiviy as it still picks up motion on the street some sixty feet away even though Ihave the slide bar set at 4.  Why doesn't this work and why am I detecting motion on the street when it's not in the activity zone I have defined?

I don't use activity zones so can't speak to that, but cars have a much bigger "footprint" then say a person or an animal, so the cameras will be able to detect them 50-60 feet away. Mine did as well until I turned the sensitivity down. But since you have yours at 4 that should be fine, so you'll probably just have to adjust the camera angle unless you can get activity zones working right (which I read has issues).
