What does "Automation" caption mean under a recorded video entry?

OT, but I’ve also been having video recorded off schedule time table. What’s up with that?

It means that you created and enabled a rule, trigger, schedule, etc. to “automate” the action of recording a video.

This is in contrast to using the cam’s settings, like motion, to kick off the action of recording a video or manually pushed the record button to start a recording.


But what if I didn’t? What if I didn’t set any rule and it still had an automation recording?

Please post a screenshot example.

Getting this all of a sudden. I didn’t change anything.
