Only one of my two cameras shows the detect motion icon at a time. When I edit armed mode there is a drop down to choose which camera rule to edit. Whichever camera I am editing then hit save will be the one that has the motion detected icon un-grayed out. And, only that camera will detect motion when system is armed. How do I set both cameras to detect motion at the same time? I don't have any choice to "add rule" in armed mode. This is same in Android app and PC.

As a given, I don't recommend editing the ARMED mode as it is a default that is made when you add cameras...

 

You need to create a CUSTOM mode ( add a mode ) which can copy the ARMED mode... if you do, you will have the option to add a rule for a second camera.  You create the new custom mode and SAVE, then go back and EDIT it to add the additional cameras.

I like to use schedule mode. @TomMac My understanding is that during schedule, system goes into armed mode and uses armed mode settings, so any custom mode will do no good. Correct?

Schedule tho listed as a MODE isn't really.... it's a way to time modes used in it.

You can use any MODE you want in schedule, default like Armed or a Custom, makes no diff
