Hi @Matty75! Depending on your device model, there are a few ways to improve recording and detection of motion events. There are ways to adjust the recording length of your device to preserve battery life. This also means it will be able to record and communicate an event quicker resulting in a quicker time til the next event.
Motion frequency is another setting that will actually limit the time between events if set to "frequent".
Other than the settings above, answering an event real time is the best way to capture important or routine events for longer than the default recording time. Answering an event real time or live viewing, will allow for video to be streamed for up to 10 minutes. I hope this helps!
