Hi @larryedwardsmith,

Thank you for joining us at Alfred Center!

When movement is detected, Alfred automatically records a video as well as notifying you. These two actions are tied together. Is there a reason why you want to be notified without seeing the video?

Let me know more so I can look into it with the team!


I get too many videos sometimes and then I have to delete each one/group individually. Maybe you could add a Delete All Videos option. That would be helpful.


Hi @larryedwardsmith,

Thank you for reaching back out!

You can actually delete all Events!

If you long press one Event, you will see two icons popping up on the upper right corner. One looks like a double check and the other a trash can. By tapping on the double check, you are selecting all Events. After that, tap the trash can to delete them all.

You can find a screenshot here:

Hope this helps!
