Hi. I don’t want my camera to record unless my motion sensor detects motion (NOT THE CAMERA’S BUILT IN MOTION DETECTION. I ONLY WANT IT TO RECORD WHEN THE SEPARATE MOTION SENSOR DETECTS MOTION). Just got the starter kit so hope I’m using the correct terminology. Let me elaborate:
I am in corporate housing. I don’t care that cleaners and maintenance staff are in and out of the unit. I really don’t want to monitor them either (or myself for that matter). But I have a camera underneath my TV pointing into the living room. Underneath the TV in the drawer, I will put passport, legal docs, crypto hardwallet, etc. The bigger ticket items. I also put a separate motion sensor in the drawer facing up so it can detect when that drawer is opened. I really don’t want to record anything unless that drawer is open. I’m a bachelor with two suitcases to my name. I really could lose everything and wouldn’t care. I just want the drawer of more sentimental and higher value items monitored. Hence, I only want the camera to deter theft from a small portion of my house, and only record events when the drawer is opened.
Alternatively, if this is not possible, is there a way to turn event detection on the camera to just Mon - Fri when I’m away for work and other folks are inside my unit. I’ve set it to detect from 9 - 7 pm currently, but I’m currently an event that its recording right now, and I don’t need that much detection, especially when I’m usually home at these times on the weeknd. I don’t want to have a camera facing the entrance, especially if the goods are really only in one drawer. Want to make the cleaners feel as comfortable as possible, while protecting my assets.
Third and lastly, understanding my situation, is there anything else you would recommend. Been reading posts on here and you guys sound pretty advanced with this. Lemme know if there’s a better way to rejig my place.
Any feedback greatly appreciated. Thank youuuuuuuuuuu!!!
