Outdoor motion detection range

I recently had to switch out a camera with Arlo due to it not detecting until 5 feet in front of the camera. The one they sent me in doing the same thing. What can I do to improve this?

I beleive its a firmware issue. Mine does the same thing. Some days its fine other days it misses everything. My batteries draining fast too.

It’s weird tho cause my other 3 cameras do great. This one literally detects 5 feet before the camera.

I know. It is weird. It only affects certain cameras. Many others complaining rapid battery drain on 3 out of there 5 cameras. Could be camera software. Im not real sure but i know something isnt right. May 15th is when all kinds of issues started. They then put out a trial firmware which i did and it fixed all my issues. Then about 2 weeks ago i started noticing my cams losing 10% a night even while disarmed
