Change video time on doorbell from 30 seconds to always on or longer time

Hi all, long time listener, first time caller.

I have a Friedland visiocam 46603pl, 2.4 ghz wireless monitor, ed1.

\It has 2 units, the doorbell with the camera and the remote video screen which will show video of person who pressed on the doorbell for 30 seconds.

I would like to tweak the unit so I get longer video, or can switch on the camera when I want, or even have it permanently on. To be honest I just want to tinker with it to see if any of these can be done, but I need help.

I'm sure it would be a case of wiring. I've tried sticking the doorbell button down with blue tack but it still goes off after 30 seconds (just saying in case someone suggests it )

To be permanently on I reckon I can try making the circuit by permanently connecting the button switch but I would prefer it if I could turn the camera on maybe by using the scan button on the indoor unit or something.

Any ideas would be great thank you!
