Is there anything I can do to remove or reduce the delay from motion been detected and the recording starts?? People are walking into my drive, a 10 second recording starts but the video clip I watch is from when they are almost stood on my door step. This is frustrating me

It's all about positioning and sensitivity. Read the FAQ here on best positioning practices and maybe increase the motion sensitivity in your modes and rules (read the FAQ on this if not sure how to do that). The camera detects best when motion is across the FOV, not at the camera. DIstance, of course, plays into this, too. You may have to move the camera to get the best position for detection.

I currently have the sensitivity on 100% (high) and I also recently moved the camera to a lower position. I will have a look through FAQs as-well, thanks

Sensitivity has to be changed in your modes and rules to be saved. The motion test just gives you a number to be used in your rules.
