I have discovered after installing 21 of these cameras that they won't record while I'm viewing live without hitting that little button.  This is a serious limitation for me.  This set up will have several users and I don't want to take the chance that one of them is using the live feed to monitor activity, isn't paying attention for a few minutes and forgot to hit that button, so the footage is lost forever. 

 

Has anyone found a work around for this? My first thought was a browser extension to automatically hit that button whenever you hit the live button, but I have zero experience in creating one.  

 

I called netgear and they insisted this is not a problem and refuse to admit that it's a limitation of their system.  I would not have purchased these cameras had I bee aware of this before hand.  I have discovered the API that a couple of users have put together that might fix this problem, but that is beyond the scope of my current skills.  I would be willing to learn and put something together, but the window to return thousands of dollars in this equipment is going to close very soon.  Please help.

To be accurate, this is a design decision. Manul recording while live viewing is possible but not motion detection. A relatively simple solution is user training, especially if this is th eonly issue you face.
