If I plug my stickup cam battery (gen2) to permanent power will pre-roll or continuous recording be available?
Hey @Sburnett. The device will still be registered as a battery operated device, even though there is constant power to the device. Therefore, the firmware on the device will still remain the same and have it operate as a battery device. The constant power is a great idea though, that way you can have higher motion sensitivity and frequency of recordings to ensure everything is captured without risking battery life!
Does the Stick Up Cam Plug In have a pre-roll feature?
@Sburnett The Stick Up Cam Battery or Plug In do not have the pre-roll feature, similar to the Ring Video Doorbell 3 that does offer pre-roll.
no I don’t like this answer. it means I have to return your crappy stick-up cam, and find another venfor/solution – motion activation w/ out pre-roll is useless.
I bought the battery 2nd gen stick up and later purchased the barrel plug plug in. If you go into Device Settings - General Settings and change your cam to “Wired” it will guide you thru a new set up (or you could do a factory reset and set it up as “Wired”). When you do this you will now have the pre-roll feature and also you will be able to select 3 motion zones. Dont select “Motion Verification”. There seems to be a bug in the software that does not let you receive notifications. Hope this helps
