Appears to be a common problem as I am having the same issue, nothing records when motion is detected.
Have 32 gig micro sdcard in Base Unit and 32 gig mico sdcard in Outdoor Cam. Battery was fully charged and shows 97% as of today. When looking at live video can see motion tagging going on in the detection zone but nothing gets recorded. Have messed around with distance and sensitivity but nothing seems to help. Cool down is set at 1 Minute.
BTY, tried a 64 gig micro sdcard in Base Unit and it refused to recognize it. Same card is good in windows 10.
Also, when I am in Live View mode and then look at Album and then return to Live View all I see is a black screen where the video should be. I have to back out of the Outdoor Cam and then select it again to get video again.
If I select ’ Record ’ I can see that in Album as a video and if I select ’ Take Photo ’ I can see that in Album as a photo so the camera is manually recording to the micro sdcard but records nothing during motion.
Another thing, how does one go about looking at the micro sdcard contents in Base Unit. I can see it in settings and can see that space is being taken up, apparently by my manual recordings above. Do you have to physically remove the micro sdcard and insert it in another device to look at what is on it?
At this time, I can in no way recommend the Outdoor Cam as it stands.
Maybe I am doing something wrong but have been able to get several V2 cams working and a couple of Pan Cams going. I have experienced, along with at least three friends that have V2 cams, the issue with micro sdcards ending up as write only. Definitely something going on there. Could be the micro sdcards we use, don’t know.
