Events are not clear to me
« on: January 05, 2017, 04:30:40 AM »

Hi!
Just got a 2330L and this is what i would like to happen:

1. During monday-friday between 09:00-16:30 i would like the camera to notice motion and if motion occurs i would like it to:
A: Send some images via email
B: Record video to SD
--and--
2. 1. During monday-sunday between 00:00-06:00 i would like the camera to notice motion and if motion occurs i would like it to:
A: Send some images via email
B: Record video to SD

Is this possible? I can't seem to add two actions (send images and record video) to the same Event, therefor i can't the different schemes.
Is there a way to make a more complex event so the two-event-limit wont be a problem?

Thank you!

No, unfortunately.  You're correct that you can't do what you want: each event can have only one action associated.  You're further limited in that you can only have two events.  So you might be able to get a partial solution one of two ways under those limitations:

1.  Have one event for Mon-Fri and one event for Mon-Sun, and pick whether you prefer SD recording or emails for each.

OR

2. Find a blend of day range and time range that works for all seven days you want to cover.  Set up one event for that range and pick whether you most prefer emails or SD card recording.  Set that event to have the highest priority, and also set the motion detection delay (before triggering next event) to whatever the lowest value is (I think it might be one second).  Then set up a second event for the same day/time range and have it do whichever of email and SD recording you did not pick in the first event.  Make it second priority.  The point of this approach is to have two events that fire almost simultaneously, with one handling email and one handling recording.

I'm skeptical how well #2 would work since these cameras have very weak processors and aren't good at doing more than one thing at once (if that sometimes!).  But it might be worth a test.
