Security Cams Feature Request

Re: Security Cams Feature Request


I would like a feature to control multiple motion zones independently. 


Motion Zone 1 set to record motion (but not turn on lights or send alerts).

Motion Zone 2 set to record, turn on lights and send alerts.

Motion Zone 3 record, turn on lights, send alerts, sound alarm. 


Thank you.

Hi to the Community.


Forgive me if this might have been requested elsewhere (I'm a newbie), but what about a date/timestamp on recorded video?  I think it would be quite useful.

Limited motion detection settings Spotlight Cam that Battery with Solar

 I installed both of my Spotlight Cam that use Batteries, and compared to my Wired one, wired floodlight, and Pro doorbell I am a little disappointed with the motion settings. When I go to motion settings, then to zones it asks me how far out I want to do all 3 zones, but it does not visualy show me how far those zones go. I wish the zone was overlaidover on a picture of what the camera sees. Also wish you could adjust each of the 3 zones with a different depth.  Two of the zones I would like fully used and one of the zones I would online only the first 3rd.  

I get that these motion settings are to conserve battery, but when when you have two batteries in each camera and Solar I should have more then enough power for better motion settings.  I just wish there was a way to unlock those settings if you are using duel batteries and Solar.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Outdoor camera with Solar and duel bateries should have more more motion settings avaialble like a plug in camera does.  With Solar and Duel bateries you have a ton a batery life mostly with the solar I can't get one below 88% even after doing a lot of lawn work around them.  With in a couple hours I am back to 100%.  


I just got the duel setup because knowing once winter comes cooler temps and less sun might into to the bareries more.

SpotLight Motion Cam Battery - New Feature Request

Hello,  I have used my Spotlight cam to observe my back door on a patio.  It seems to work great except for one significant issue.  There are many times that I would like to turn off the motion and video features all together while I have a patio party for example..  Also, I sit on my patio everyday to enjoy my back yard and I am always being recorded.  This is a problem for me.  The only way I have been able to accomplish this is to get my ladder and pull the battery.  This pretty much makes my cam useless for practival use.  Therefore, I request that the development team add the ability to choose either or both motion and recording as options to suspend using snooze.  Then I could not only defeat the motion notiifications, but I could also defeat recordings.  This is prudent in many ways:  first, it will allow my battery to last more than a month,  second, it will save enermous amount of space on the recording server and internet bandwidth, and lastly, it will reduce the ridiculus amount of email notificaitons I receive.  It would be similiar to conserving water or electricity.  It will make this device more ECO friendly.  Thanks

Feature request: Different active detection zones based on schedule

Hello, we love the floodlight cam, but would really like to be able to have different detection zones for night time and day time use. I know there is a way to turn off motion detection based on schedule but that's not good enough.

I agree. I want this to be possible on the spot light camera just like it is on the doorbell pro.

We thought these would go well with the other feature requests, so I moved it over to this thread. Thank you for sharing this detailed request @veener79  and for sharing your interest @barta2019


I've done the same for your request @BeSafe. As it is a popular one, let's compile it with the others for reinforcing value while we share these with the team Smiley Happy

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

As someone who is using the indoor stick up cameras it's  very disappointing to me that there isn't an easy way to only record when I'm away. Competitors do this with geofencing via your phone (one option). However I've also got a full Ring Protect security system that seems to have zero (or near zero?) integrations with the camera...? Why can't I set the camera to only be on when I'm away in the security system? There's also IFTTT/Alexa integrations, but they are shallow enough that they don't support functionality which would let me solve this problem there either...

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

To build off this last message with having a Ring Alarm system I would love to setup  my cameras to interact more with it.  When the system is Disarmed I could pick what cameras I want recording or disarmed.  When Armed all cameras are armed.
