How to turn on Pro3 light when movement is detected and I am at home not in bed yet? This is when i would need light walking around the house....I use typically geolocalisation with planning activation between 00h00 to 07h00 for video recording. If no planning my video are filled up while I or dogs are not asleep and walking around.

This is why i bought this flodlight (see my way in the dark and record video when asleep or not home).

HB9EYP,

 

The floodlight can be triggered manually or on motion detection. For more information on how this can be done, take a look here:

Tks James. I know all this but i bought this flood light for 2 reasons

1. Turn on with mouvement detection at night when i am home to see my way walking around the house before midnight. No need to record but fine if only flodlight records (I have 8 cams...).

2. Turn on and record after midnight when i am asleep or not home.

The problem is that i have 8 cameras and we can have only ONE mode activated!

You should allow at least TWO modes to be active. Otherwise if i want to switch light on movement before midnight i need to activate all cams and i will be flooded with wrong alarms as my dogs walk around the house till midnight. I don't want to switch mode manually every day but with planning.

With planning, we should be able to activate one mode i.e:

a) between 8pm and 11h30pm only flodlights are active and

b) after 11h30pm till 6am flodlights and all cameras are active for security.

Today i believe this is not possible. I don't need this lamp and detection if i have to turn it on manually..... or activate all cams every day manually when i go sleeping.

I am using geo-localisation when not home all cams activate automatically and this is a nice feature.

Please allow 2 modes in planning or to run at same time!!!

Thanks i found i can add several time ranges in planning with different rules for each time range. Not sure whyi did not manage this 2 days ago, this solves my issue turning only flodlights before midnight on movement detection without recording. Good option.
