I have a rental property and we had our first renters this week. I made a mode to simply record any motion detection but not alert. This CRUSHED the main room's camera thanks to recording pretty regularly and annihilated my internet service there constantly uploading.

 

So I was of the mindset to creat a new mode to record every 15 mins at the top of ever waking hour or so. Unfortunately (and confirmed by technical support) you can only schedule an arming time for 6 hours (7-715 through noon I believe I was able to do). You can make the times as long as you want, but you can only have 6. I've attached a photo to show what I mean. Untitled.png

 

It would be awesome to be able to have more time scheduling!

 

In the mean time, I will mess around with some less battery and bandwidth intensive settings! If anyone has any suggestions, I will post a thread in the community as to not clutter this idea thread. 🙂

actualgriffith,

 

I may be misunderstanding but I just tested this and was able to schedule more than 6 blocks of time using the schedule. What are you seeing that is preventing you from scheduling more?

Hi James,

 

I spoke with Nina on tech chat earlier (image of her confirming the issue below). I don't recieve an error or anything. The Arlo loading bird shows up, takes about 10-15 seconds to think, then just spits me back to the schedule, just as seen in the original post.

 

Can you take a sceenshot and show me a schedule with 15 min or so armed time slots with more than six entries across all days? You may be able to do it for 1 day...perhaps. But there is an upper limit somewhere.

actualgriffith,

 

Upon further testing, I was able to replicate as you describe. I will escalate this topic to see if this is expected behavior.
