Good question @BrianScherer! Your devices should allow you to initiate live streaming via the Live View button in your app, or by answering an event in real time. If you receive a notification that you’d like to answer, tapping on the notification banner or tapping Live View should connect you with the ongoing event. Once a live view is initiated, you are able to live stream the event for up to 10 minutes or until you end the live view.
There may be times, when a notification is unanswered, that the device has captured the default recording length clip and is processing or saving it while returning to a ready state. During this time, if a live view is triggered, it should also activate but may load or take a moment to connect. This will depend on battery level (if battery powered), signal strength, network efficiency, and method to live view. Check out our Rapid Ring app to see if this improves your live view speeds, as it is designed for a quicker access. I hope this helps!
