I’m looking to do some sort of video monitoring of the front door outside. I’m trying to decide the best way to do this, was considering an image sensor mounted high, aimed down at an angle but was wondering how it would work with the ‘image sensor events’. My first thought was that 40 events would not be near enough - but it might be if it could be set to only send pictures when the system is armed. Is that possible?
The other option was the IP video. I was wondering if there is a reliable method of triggering recording outdoors. I thought a separate PIR sensor and a proper video recording schedule might work. Or could I get the doorbell? Thoughts?
