Better Motion Detection Alternative For An Axis Camera?

I want to use the built-in Milestone VMS motion detection on an Axis P1354-E camera. It works well enough, but I noticed that I have seasonal issues with the shadows caused by nearby trees during strong sunlight.

I can think of two obvious solutions:

  • The first is to buy some sort of Axis add-in to do proper in-camera analytics.
  • The second is to use a PIR and connect it to the input on the Axis camera.

My initial research shows that the P1354-E has a 3.3 V DC power output for aux equipment. However, I have not found any outdoor rated PIR’s that can operate the 50+ feet to cover the vehicle gate. My goal is to trigger on gate activity.

EDIT: This is obviously NOT an Axis P1354-E image. It is the analog camera I want to replace with a P1354-E. I have shadowing issues with the analog camera, and I'm positive I will have the same issues with the Axis P1354-E.
