Video length for motion detection

When motion is detect, can the video record more than 12s?

No, this is a limitation of the free cloud storage. However, you can install a microSD card in the camera and the length of motion triggered recording to the card is limited only by the size of the card.

I do have a local SD and when motion is detected, the video recorded only last 12 seconds.

Motion detection clips And events recorded on the SD card are 2 separate things

Use the Playback feature to view video footage stored on your microSD card.

To view the recorded footage, enter the Live Stream view for your camera and tap the View Playback button.

Tap and drag the timeline to view recorded video from a specific point in time.
You can tap the date button to select a specific date in the calendar view.
The times where there is video footage available will be highlighted in color on the timeline.
You can pinch and zoom on the timeline to change the scale of the timeline to make it easier to select a specific point in time. This is particularly useful if you have 1-minute increments based on the Record events only setting.

Doh…thanks, got it.
