This debate is probably as old as CCTV or IP cameras are. We held a hundred rounds of user interviews before developing this feature. The result is interesting. People who have experience with security cameras know better that they don’t have time to go back and check footage. “We are not security guards who spend the whole day staring at the Viewer”, so the Alfred team was told. “When there was a theft or burglary, you want to know what happened, so there was no point recording junk and saving junk”.
Still, when new users are searching for security camera (alternatives), they tend to think it is really important to keep recording.
