Video 2K no notification of people at night untill 5 feet

My video doorbell 2K will not pick up a person at night unless your 5 feet away from it. I have my zone set out far enough and sensitivity turned all the way on. It picks up cars all the way out in the street but not a person at 7 feet. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @John445
I have found with the 2C cameras a similar behavior. What fixed my issues is I went to the settings for the doorbell and went to ‘power manager’ and changed it from ‘optimal battery life’ to ‘optimal surveillance’.

After that my doorbell and cameras did a much better job of picking up people at night.

Just one other note, I do have a pretty decent amount of ambient light in the areas of my front yard/front door/and driveway.
