What is "answered motion"?

POE Stick Up Camera.  When looking at history, some events say "Motion" and some say "Answered Motion".  They look the same to me.  What does "Answered Motion" mean?  And how is it different than just "Motion"?

Re: What is "answered motion"?

Great question @Brad! In your event history, an event will show up answered if you tapped the notification banner when the even initially occurred causing that specific video to open and live stream.


If you miss the notification, wait until the 30 seconds/ 1 minute recording time is over, or go into the app and trigger a live view instead of answering the current event, then those events will show as unanswered events ("Motion").
