I would like all motion to record video, but only receive notifications when the motion is within my activity zone.  Is this possible?  I have a zone setup on my Pro 3 Floodlight and another on my wired doorbell, but seem to only have video recordings for items that are triggered in the activity zone.

Unfortunately not for cloud storage.

 

Though if you have a smarthub (vmb4540 or vmb5000), you could enable direct access to local storage.  Out-of-zone recording would be stored locally (assuming the cameras are on battery power), but not in the cloud.  They could be seen using the app, but not the browser.

 

If you have an older hub, then local storage is still a possibility, but you would need to remove the USB storage from the base and connect it to a PC to view it.
