auto-record for cameras removed?

I just received a message within the app saying that cameras will no longer auto record upon detection of motion (or something like that?).  Am I understanding correctly?  This seems like a bad idea to me, especially for outdoor cameras like the doorbell.  They should definitely put that back in, at least as an option.

Hi @keropi,

The recent change that that in-app message was referring to is that we recently made it so that SimpliSafe cameras will no longer automatically record the Arming events for your SimpliSafe system that show up in your timeline. That being said, the cameras will still automatically record whenever the system is disarmed, an alarm goes off or if motion is detected in addition to a few other events. For more information on this change, you can view our thread about it by clicking here.
