How to record 24/7?

I cannot figure out how to record 24/7. If I hit record it stops when I close the app. I see no setting for it. I have a 128GB card in it that works fine. I can record several days with that amount of space.

You are recording the live view to your phone’s gallery. That does stop when you leave the app.

The setting to turn on recording to the microSD card is a bit buried. Here’s how you find it:

  1. Tap the gear icon from the live veiw
  2. Tap Advanced Settings
  3. Tap Local Storage
  4. Flip the switch to turn on local recording
  5. Choose either event only or continuous

Now the camera will record to the SD card whether or not the app is active or connected to the camera.

To view what’s on the SD card, tap View Playback from the live stream view. Or you can remove the card from the camera and download the files directly.

Here’s the complete set of instructions:


But is there any way to download directly from the card while it is in the camera without playing it and recording while playing, thus creating an album?

No, that is not possible at this time. I wish it was, too.
