Problems with Arlo rules. Order make a difference?

I have three Arlo cameras and use the following rules:

 

Camera A records to Camera A for 25 seconds
Camera A records to Camera B for 60 seconds
Camera C records to Camera C for 25 seconds
Camera C records to Camera B for 60 seconds
Camera B is not set to record

 

Is the above possible? I'm not getting consistent results with the above rules. Sometimes Camera B does not record when either Camera A or Camera C are triggered.

 

Does the order of rules make a difference? Is there an easy to sort the rules?

 

Thanks

I aways found with nested rules it works better if the times were the same ... Not that it's supposed to matter

I read that but really haven't tried it. I kind of wanted to save battery life on some of my recordings.

if available in your country, might want to order the recommended Tenergy rechargeable batteries.  I found it a worthwhile investment for my two most used cams.

What about the motion sensitivity for each camear? I'm wondering if they should be kept the same as well.

Mine are, but don't know if it makes a difference...

 

Question re Nested rules vs importance of order and how the prgm reads in which order was put to the higher ups, but I never got an answer
