I’ve installed my first ST Cam and installed the V3 Smartthings App on my phone. When I went to set up the Cam for Motion Detection and Recording, I was presented with an option to install ST Home Monitor or I could click the “later” button. However, when I click the later button, the screen refreshes and won’t move forward with the Cam installation until I install Home Monitor.
I don’t think I want Home Monitor installed as the ST App V3 will do basically what I want: I want the camera to be either in “Armed Stay” or “Armed Away,” in either mode, when motion is detected, I want the camera to start recording for 30 seconds and notify me that there is motion at the camera.
So far, I have the proper Automation to do this in both Home Monitor and the Smartthings App, under automation, I have two listed the Cam automation and the Home Monitor automation. I just want one, the best one, to do this job.
Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks!
