I am testing my new camera before final installation. I have set it up to stream video to Dropbox. The video strangely seems to anticipate the movement and starts recording before I walk across infront of the camera. It picks me up only about half way through the video.

I also note that it sends a still photo aswell as the video to Dropbox.

hi again :) would adjusting the motion sensor to the highest level help?

Hi

I have the same issue. No - adjusting sensitivity doesn't help. The camera starts recording about 7 secs BEFORE a movement occurs, then usually cuts off at about the 15 or 20 second point. i thought it was supposed to record for 30 secs? Unfortunately it often cuts off just as the subjects are about to do something interesting!

Is there a way to extend the record time to the full 30 secs?

Hi Angus, i don't think there is a way to extend the recording time. only thing that comes to my mind as a workaround is to switch on the streaming to see the whole action after getting an alert ...

Are you certain they are motion alerts? Could the camera be picking up audio prior to you stepping into view of the camera; and that is what is activating it?

I have motion sensor on only, audio is off. It makes no difference to the start time of the video or how long it lasts. One would expect that if movement continues there would at least be an immediate additional recording, however there is a gap before the next video starts which could result in loss of critical monitoring.
