My 6 camera outdoor system has overlapping fields of view.  When camera #1 detects motion how can I get camera #2, which is too far away to be triggered by the motion, to also record?  The IFTTT app doesn’t seem to do it.

Model: VMC4030P | Arlo Pro 2 Wire-Free Camera

You have to go to MODES, for you base ADD A MODE

follow directions for first camera and SAVE

go back to new mode and edit to add second camera, save

Have you created custom modes?

 

with rules as follows;

Cam A triggers, Cam A records

Cam A triggers, Cam B records

Noob here!  I did not know it would be that easy.  But I don’t know how to do that...  Only instructions with the unit were for startup and what is on the package!  Nothing about “rules” in the Arlo app.  Where should I look?

 

Thank you.
