I cannot place the camera at the distance I would like.
The cameras and hub must be kept within WiFi range of one another this is a limited distance and is affected by the position and thickness of walls and signals from other network in the area.
However there is one trick you can use to improve the signal between the base station and the camera, simply turn the base station on its side or mount vertically on a wall using the hanging hole.
Due to the design of the unit and how wireless waves work the hub gets a better signal if positioned as shown below.
Mounting the hub vertically gives better signal strength/range for situations where you want to maximize the distance your cameras can be used.
