We had our system install just under 2 years ago with one outdoor camera and two Day/Night vision cameras (also outside). All work flawlessly and I can record any camera, one at a time. I was told during install that the Day/Night cams have motion sensors and I am reading here that people are using the motion to trigger recording. I can't find that option in my web control rules. Cameras are set to record based on Garage Door (rollups) opening but that misses things like package deliveries or attempted break-ins. How do I get the motion detection feature to work?
Thanks @Meowmix. Perhaps I am misunderstanding the feature set of the cameras. I was told that the cameras themselves have a motion sensor and that it could trigger a recording. The Step 1 "When My" device list shows the standard motion sensors within my home but does not list the cameras. I can record a video when a motion sensor triggers but I don't have a stand-alone sensor outside of the house. I wanted to use the motion sensors inside the camera to trigger the event. Is that possible?
Thanks. That is unfortunate as most other home security systems support the camera motion detectors and I know the cameras have that built in. I currently have garage door sensors on both roll ups and they do trigger recording but that only works once the door is opened. It does nothing for failed break in attempts or package deliveries to the front door, let alone anyone sneaking around the house looking for an opportunity.
Maybe its a limitation of the older cameras?
It appears i can do it, on the current camera
(the one listed here http://www.rogers.com/web/content/smart-home-monitoring-solutions-new?ipn=1#tab2)
The rogers system is GREAT for triggered events.. when X happens do Y... so video clips based on that. (things like when the door opens, take a video clip, etc)
If you want to get into more advanced recording based on motion, and for longer periods/more storage.. you really need to look at a more advanced DVR based camera system.
Yeah, never tried it before.. but there was that update a week or two ago.. may have added that in?
My camera is about < 10ft away from the front door, inside, and picks up the movement of if someone is at the door or door opens.
So would work for a setup like that.. would probably catch a delivery guy outside (1/2 glass frame door)
But if it was a setup with it farther away, etc.. yeah might not be very good.
