Slow response to motion


I have a motion sensor in a room, and have a smartapp configured to turn on the Hue lights in the room when motion is detected. Sometimes it takes upwards of 5 seconds between walking into view of the motion sensor, and the lights coming on. Is there a way to speed this up, as this delay is unacceptable?

How fast is it if you wave your hand in front of the motion sensor? I ask because I am just trying to cut down on variables like room size. How about with other lights or outlets? Is the time similarly long?

Its an aeon Labs Multi motion sensor placed on the ceiling in a small room ( washroom). People walk directly beneath it, and it blinks that it detects motion. A person can enter the room, wash their hands and leave before the lights come on.

I have seen similar response times when turning lights on via the android app ( 5 seconds to on). The Hue App provides instant on.
