This should be easy to answer. Is there a way to get notifications without the ability of recording an event? Seems like notifications only work when an event is recorded and recordings are setup based on motion/sound detection. I don’t have an SD card in my cam yet (I will eventually) so it won’t record anything. I’m assuming that means no notifications as well although I thought you could still receive notifications without recording the event. I guess it makes sense that you have to record the event to get notifications on it so you can see what took place. That’s all. Just an observation.
