Camera Motion Range

For those of you using the SimpliCam outdoors, what kind of range are you getting on the motion sensor? The video works fine and records during arm/disarm, and I can view live and make manual recordings. But even with the motion sensor set to high sensitivity, I can pull into my driveway and park 15 feet from the camera and it will only sometimes trigger that as a motion event. Sometimes, it doesn't even pick me up when I get out of the car and walk closer to the camera. The motion sensor capability of the camera seems very limited.

I have noticed the very same scenerio when pointing the cameras through a window toward our pool/driveway. I just assumed that the window was the issue and gave up. I too would love to hear some input from those using the camera outside without window interference.

Indoors the motion sensor is very receptive in our largest rooms (30'x20').
