Questions & Answers for Swann Communications RedAlert Movement Video Recording Kit, Model# SW244WDW

Question

Swann Communications RedAlert Movement Video Recording Kit, Model# SW244WDW

I am familiar with the Swann Outback and was wondering how this model compares to it.
Is there any kind of a delay on this model? On the Swann Outback there seemed to be a delay between sensing the motion and recording.
What is the min and max range for a moving object to trip the motion sensor? What about vertically?
Thank you for your assistance

The sensitivity to motion can be adjusted on this camera, with setting #1 being the most sensitive and #16 being the least. The maximum range that is will detect motion is 65 feet. As long as the motion is within the frame of the camera, either vertically or horizontally and falls within the 65 feet, the camera would start recording without any delay.
