Schedule Motion Notifications

If you want to schedule your motion detection notifications you've come to the right spot. You can only schedule your notifications if:

  1. You're on a business plan.
  2. Your camera is setup with Continuous Record

Let's say we own a coffee shop. This coffee shop is busy with customers all day. You still want to record all day but you don't want to get tons of notifications during the day. Instead you want notifications at night, when the shop is closed.

Easy! Setup a schedule. In this case we'd create a schedule to only show motion events (and notifications) between the hours of 9pm and 6am, for example. 

Make sure your schedule is assigned to your camera (this can be done when you first setup your schedule) right in the edit camera dialog:

Also keep your motion detection notifications ON (the checkmark shows it's enabled). Your schedule will dictate when you get the notifications.

What you'll see in the timeline is a constant (light) blue recording (this is the 24x7 recording) but it won't show you the motion events nor will you get notifications. The diagram belows shows the difference between cameras setup with a schedule and without.
