Event Recording Settings vs SD Card Record events setting

Hi all,

I got confused by the two different event related settings. Could someone please explain to me how they are related (or not related)?

  1. Under “Event Recording”, there is schedule and push notification.
  2. Under “Advanced Settings”, “Local Storage”, there is “Record events only”.

I want the cam to always record events, but only send me notification within a certain period of time during the day. So, I have “Record events only” selected, and then in “Event Recording”, I setup the schedule I want to received push notifications. Is that right? Would it still record locally to sd card if it is outside the scheduled period?

Thank you.

The 12-second cloud stored clips and the SD card storage are separate and independent. They are set up and viewed in different areas of the app.

For the SD card storage, go to the camera settings, then Advanced Settings > Local Storage. That is where you set the SD card to record continuously or event-only (1 minute segments).

To view the SD card recordings, don’t tap the Events tab in the app. That is only for the cloud clips. Instead, tap the View Playback button on the live stream view. How you’ll see a timeline under thevideo frame so you can go back in time. You can also remove the card from the camera and view or download the 1-minute video files on a computer.

Here are some help pages from the Support site:




It would be helpful to add a note to the top of the Events page in the App, to indicate that this is from Cloud Recordings only. And have a link to Local Storage to view that separately.
