Can the lights be used to extend recording time to a camera?

If you add a light will it extend the time recorded from a camera? For instance... If the light is at the end of a drive and a car pulls up, will the camera record when the light senses motion and keep recording when the camera senses motion or does it cause a delay as the camera first needs to upload the clip from the trigger from the light.

Re: Can the lights be used to extend recording time to a camera?

While you can use the light to start the camera OR the camera to start the light., it is still controlled by the MODE/RULES you are using to arm them.  There is no additional time.

( but both light and camera will reset and restart the record cycle after a pause if motion continues )
