I think this shoudl be easy, but it is not working.  I have 3 cameras--2 external and one interior.  I want the interior one essentially disabled (lots of movementr in the house) most of the time, but want it to activate and record if motion is sensed at either of the exterior two.

For example if someone is breaking in, they will trigger the exterior and we will have a video of them; then if they successfully get inside, the interior camera will record them as well.  Here are my settings.Screenshot 2015-11-16 13.41.31.png

You should also have the rule for the outside cameras...

 

if motion on outside, then record on outside.

 

and the rule for inside..

if motion inside, then record inside

 

And the rule above

if motion outside, then record on inside

 

 

Now make a NEW MODE and add the three rules to it by making sure those Rules are checked green  ( if black the rule is off, if green the rule is on )

 

Also remember that ONLY ONE MODE is active at a time, the new rule overwrites the previous.

 

 

Rule say what the cameras do, Modes say what cameras are turn on

Rules problem. Editing a rule I already have, I found the app would only allow me to detect on one camera and record on another, it did not allow me to detect and record on the same camera as before. Can anyone help?

I would delete that Mode and try to start over recreating it... some sort of glitch
