Cam2 pro motion detection range

So I got a couple of these cam2 pro 2k from Best Buy and mounted them on the gutter area of my 2nd floor aiming toward my downward sloping backyard. Unfortunately I am getting 0 notifications even with sensitivity to 7 and all motion on. Only works if I throw something at it or wave a broom around in front of it. I am thinking this has something to do with the pir motion detection range where it’s just outside of the limitations of the camera to be triggered to turn on. My question is that I was reading somewhere on 9-5 Mac that the editor was able to use the eufy cam motion detection to trigger his hue lights in HomeKit. Can I use a hue outdoor motion sensor to trigger the cam 2 pro to start recording?
