Auto Record on Doorbell While Viewing Live

So I work from home. And I have 2 dogs. When there is someone outside, such as UPS, my dogs bark. So I bring up the Eufy app to see who / what it is that is making my dogs bark. It is mostly people making deliveries (UPS, Federal Express, USPS, etc). Once I see who / what it is I close the app. But then I noticed there was no recording of the event. I know that I can manually record while I have the app up. But is there a way to set the doorbell to auto record even if I am viewing live?

If I record manually it simply goes to my phone and then my wife and daughter can’t see it on their phones. I would like for the doorbell to record it so that we can all see it later if need be to be able to track packages or whatever.

@Patriot I haven’t tried it recently…because I know it’s an issue. But when entering a recorded event (meaning you get an alert, then enter to see the live view) it will stop recording. Which is a BIG problem!! After I discovered this issue, I had to tell my family that if they enter a camera and something is going on…they need to manually record the event. This doesn’t make any sense. If the event is triggered and is recording it should continue to record the event as normal (regardless if the camera is being viewed live or not).

At times, this prevents me from entering a live view. I feel I have to give it a minute to see what’s going on (so I know the event was recorded). How is that a “security” camera?!? Fortunately, screen pics show what’s going on…not all the times, but I rely on those images to help me decided how to open the app. Sad.
