Share Your Thoughts on Motion Detection Schedule!

I like this feature a lot, an improvement that I would like would be a schedule for multiple times. An issue I have is that I would like it to detect motion at night 11pm - 6am and then 9am - 6pm. Also the ability to have different schedules for the weekend would be really welcome


Esta funcionando perfectamente
Lo que no entiendo mucho inglés y otra cosa lo que me piden que temgo que llenar é tratado pero no lo consigo.
Perdón porque fui grosera contigo es que tengo problema con mi ex y me amenaza por eso lo dejo siempre abierto cuidenme x la cámara.

Thank you so much for the upgrade.
Nice clarity.
Now I’ll be able to see faces.


This seemed like a really good idea so i Paid… Unfortunately I need to set it more for the weekends which I can’t do. I’ll still have to turn them all on Friday afternoon and all off Monday morning. :confused:
More options would be good



Thanks for the feedback!

We will look into the possibility of improving the Motion Detection Schedule upon your suggestion. Please continue to support Alfred and stay tuned!


I Don’t Use It… Nice extra feature for those that do though.


I need more granular control of the motion detection scheduling. Typical Monday - Friday vs Weekends isn’t good enough. Minimum need to be able to set static time frames by day. Better if it could be dynamic and integrated with other services.


I think there’s just a slight of a hint into a gander of a suspicion that maybe it’s perhaps likely to have a better chance of a suspicious upgrade.:wink:


Weekends only as an option please!!

I would also like the ability to enable/disable the camera by a schedule as well. It is one thing to simply disable the motion detector, but for privacy reasons I want to disable the camera when I am home.

I use the schedule to give the two cameras a staggered rest so that they have a chance to charge up fully.

If possible, the ability to add at least a few on/off times for each day would be a handy feature…turning the camera off during times when motion detection would trigger alot of false alarms.

If the team REALLY wanted to bling-up that feature, the inclusion of multiple schedules that can change for individual days would be the cremé de la cremé! (The early morning chaos trying to get the kids outta the house, then dinner to bedtime fun…the camera does not to be on M-F; Saturday n Sunday may have a more relaxed routine, for example.)

thank you

I’m a paid costumer and motion detector doesn’t record like it should my husband and my self get up though the night and walk right past it every night and never records. Before I upgraded it worked fine


We are sorry to hear that Alfred does not work as it should for you.

Alfred’s Motion Detection algorithm decides if there has been “movement” by comparing one frame with the next. As a result, Motion Detection might function not as properly as it should at night if the comparison becomes not strong enough. We suggest you can add some light around the Camera to optimize Alfred’s performance.

In the meantime, we will keep working on a better detection mode during night time.

Let us know if you have any other questions!

It seems convenient for some people, but if you do not have a Monday through Friday schedule, the lack of ability to choose days is decidedly inconvenient. I was much happier with the home or away detection and I’m not sure why that feature no longer works. Using the app Trigger or Tasker would be fine too, but it would be nice to have the features embedded in the app

Why weekday/weekend scheduling only? That’s worthless. Give us the ability to set schedules during each day, ie; Mon - 8PM to 5AM, Tue - 10PM to 6AM …

Saying that you can schedule M-F and then it’s automatically off on weekends is ridiculous. Huge detraction from an otherwise great app. As a premium (paying) member, I should expect better on this feature.

I don’t have the option on my settings even though I’m a premium user.

New premium user. I have the motion detection scheduled to turn on everyday at 12:30 am and off at 9 am. Records motion at other times too. Why?
