Contacam/HS3 response time

Any Contacam users out there?

I am considering getting a GV-VS2400 4Ch IP video server to use with some of my non-IP cameras so I can use software like Blue Iris or Contacam. I like the free price of Contacam.

I want to use some of my outdoor cameras to detect motion but I am concerned about the response time. How fast is the reaction time using ContaCam and HS3 to react to the motion detection? I currently use PIR motion detectors around my house to detect deer and trigger a couple of sprinkler zones to scare them away. The problem is I get a lot of false positives from the motion detectors which is one reason I am looking at using a camera. I also have an old wired driveway detector which is giving me a lot of false positives which I hope to replace with an ip camera.

I need a motion detection response of a second or so. Is that possible with the ContaCam/HS3 approach?
