Hi @dalyladuck,

There are two things we need you to check:

  1. Were you watching live feed on your Viewer Phone when the movement took place? Alfred’s Motion Detection doesn’t work when there is a live session going on. If you end the live-viewing session and try again, Motion Detection should work.

  2. If you were not watching live feed, please check your Event Book to see if you can find the recording:

If you can find the recording but didn’t receive a notification, please make sure notifications are properly set up:

Let me know if this helps!


No I’m not watching live feed,for example this evening I was back and forth from my driveway where camera is pointed at not one-off those times did it record. It’s been 6 hours since last recorded event, and there has-been plenty of things it should have picked up. Also it seems to start recording too late or not long enough
