Pennyonthego18,

 

Are you using the default "Armed" mode or a custom mode? Is the issue intermittent or does the front camera never detect motion?

We are using the Armed mode. The camera does not detect motion or record at any time but the camera in the back is working properly. The camera in the front had been working properly for 6 months since we first installed it. 

Thanks

Can you live view and record manually? Remove the camera from Settings, My Devices and resync. Swap cameras to see if the issue follows the camera or the location.

we switched camers, we reseng. them, and turned everything off and restarted the system and nothing helped the promblem. we have diecided that the camer is broke and all thoe we still get a feed it will not indicate motion for some reson. i guess we will have to invest in a different system. one we can count on.

You have a warranty - use it. Open a case with support here.

 

I wish I had the money to be able to throw out a system because one thing quit.
