Surveillance mode

Let me have my cameras in surveillance mode continuously without recording. I can sit inside on my iPad and wait for my mate to arrive in my driveway.

What do you mean? If you set to get a notification when motion is detected, it’s already in surveillance mode without continuously recording.
If you mean you only want a notification, but no recording of the event, you should know that because the camera doesn’t record, it won’t analyze the trigger for human presence and just send you all motion notifications.

Really? You would think it would only send notifications if human was present if selected … ( never tried human only so just a guess )
