Improving video capture at night.

I have a couple of RLC-410W's installed at home. I'm very happy with their performance. I capture to a Synology NAS as well as to the SD card.
At night time the cameras work well in motion detection and the IR helps but even with a LED PIR anyone walking along the street past the front of the house (the camera is about 5 metres from the path) is reduced to a blur. You get a sense of being able to recognise them but any screen captures are pretty useless unless they stop!
I realise this must be a common problem but is there anyway to improve the capture by changing the settings?
Stream is set to Clear, Res: 2560*1440, 15 fps, Bitrate: 3072. Firmware is v22.214.171.124_20121102
Or are any of the newer models much better?
Thanks in advance.

I am new to this forum and I don't know much about cameras yet, I would like to learn more information about it and quality cameras. Sorry for this stupidity
@ron_333040176263370 You can try to enhance the bitrate and FPS to improve the night vision. For other models, you can look at the models with higher resolution and person/vehicle detection. The AI firmware can also improve night vision.
