Floodlight Cam video questions

I just installed 4 of the floodlight cameras around my house today. Had a few questions:

  • How long does the video record when triggered by motion? Is it configurable?

  • Are there delays between motion events? For example, If there is a motion right now and its recorded will the motion trigger again right after the video ended if more motion happens? I know the Ring Doorbell 2 has a frequency setting that forces a 30 second, 15 minute or 30 minute quiet time between motion events. Do the floodlight cams have this?

  • If the camera detects a motion do the lights always come on? It sure seems like the camera records sometimes when the lights are off.

thanks for the help!

I got an answer from chat support on these. Thought I would share:

  • Recordings are 30 seconds long

  • There is 1 minute gap between recordings (for example, if a guy jumped up and down in front of the camera for 5 minutes you would get — 30 second recording; nothing for 1 minute; 30 second recording; nothing for one minute; repeat)

Didn’t get a clear answer on the last bullet - gave up :confounded:
