When setting an automation, should it take account of the motion detection settings on the trigger camera?
For example, my 2C is set up with motion zones and set to human only. I then have an automation that if it detects motion, to trigger my other camera on the front of the house. Most of the time, this works perfectly… the first camera detects a human and then triggers the other camera. I see a “video clip” for the first camera and then a “linked event video clip’ for the second.
However, today I have a series of clips where the second camera is recording and saving “linked event video clips” but there is nothing recorded by the trigger camera.
I’m wondering if the trigger camera is seeing motion, identifying it as not human and so not recording, but is still triggering the other camera. I would have expected it to only do this based on its own motion settings. I.e. if it saw a human.
