Your camera must be plugged in and connected to the Internet for recording rules to save. If you are unable to connect to your camera, please click here for help.

If you don’t see the rule you’re looking for, you will need to create it. For help creating a new rule, please click here.

If you have reached your monthly clip upload limit, you will not be able to turn on the recording rules until the first day of the next month. Please call us at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328) to upgrade your clip limit.
