Linking Contact Sensor to Camera

If you cannot link a device to a contact sensor, how do I get a camera to start recording when a contact sensor is tripped?

Specifically, I have a contact sensor on a door. I would like a camera in a different part of the house to start recording each time the door is opened. I cannot use the motion detection of the camera because it cannot see the door being opened, and it covers a busy area of the house (lots of alerts). The goal is when the door is opened, I get alerted by the door’s contact sensor and I can then review the video that was recorded by the camera. Thanks.
