Trying to determine the default state of my outdoor camera. Should it be set to ON or OFF? And should event recording have “Detects Motion” turned ON or OFF? Right now, these are set to ON, and I have two schedules set for the state of the camera. The first is to turn ON the motion detection for the camera during the evening. The second is to turn OFF motion detection for the camera around 6:00 am and throughout the day until the next ON schedule rolls around. What’s happening right now, is that the motion detection on the camera is not turning OFF at 6:00am. It stays ON all day long, and it will detect motion and upload a video to the event calendar.
If I set the default state of the camera to OFF and turn OFF “Detects Motion”, the opposite occurs. The ON schedule does not turn the camera or motion detection. It stays OFF until I open the app and manually turn it on and the motion detection.
I’d appreciate anyone’s help as to the correct way to configure the state of the camera so that it works correctly with the intended schedule. Thank you in advance for your help!
