Foscam G4 motion recording issues

Post by Joel1000 » Tue Sep 17, 2019 7:34 am

Installed a Foscam G4 camera on my surveillance station. It seems like
it only detects motion on vmobile only when in in scheduled recording
is active. If I have scheduled recording off, When I log into surveillance
station I see no recording under camera status ever....

Also can not get the push service to work.

With zero info on your configuration it's hard to give helpful responses.
Have you configured event recording?
The push service needs events to work on.

QTS TS-231 firmware 4.3.6
Surveilance station 5.1.3.3.7
Foscam G4 firmware 2.9.2.37

New to this camera so I could have settings wrong.
Is it best to have motion and or manual recording set with surveillance station or
with the camera online menu....

Some configuration detail would allow more helpful comments.

You need both.
In the camera you configure the motion recording settings - the area, the sensitivity, the schedule etc.
In SS you configure the actions to be taken when receiving a motion event notification.
