Are we required to pay for cams to record now?

I bought sd cards and my cameras won’t record anymore. It says I have to upgrade to cam plus.
They used to record for the last 3 years.
What happened?
V2 cameras

Multiple messages were sent but basically they decided to add free person detection but also require you to go through some hoops to retain “cloud” services.

However … Your SD card recordings have NOT changed.

If you were using the Events tab, you were never seeing SD recordings. They are reached via View Playback.
