Video time length?

The videos on my alert notifications are very short. Is there any way to extend that time?

It is by design to save on calls to the cloud service. Then, I believe it does not record again for 5 minutes to prevent from too many triggers. I came to realize this makes the cloud based service not useful for my needs. I wanted to track activity at the front of my house due to occasional vandalism in the neighborhood. The problem is, the cam only records 10-15 seconds, so it captures someone entering the scene, but it will not likely save the activity of the person and that person will be gone 5 minutes later. An SD card is pretty much required.
