Indoor camera opens, records at wrong times

They all work that way. A new/replacement camera will do exactly the same thing. It's inherent to the system.

Hi all,

whoaru99 is correct. Here is a comprehensive list of the events that will trigger recordings from your SimpliSafe cameras:

  • Alarms
  • Arming or Disarming your SimpliSafe system
  • Camera Detected Motion
  • User Triggered Recording
  • Secret Alerts (When Enabled)
  • User Initiated Test of the SimpliSafe system
  • Duress Alarm
  • Silent Panic button
  • Exit Delay (After arming your system)
  • Entry Delay (After entering your home while the system is alarmed)
  • Power Restored

Please keep in mind that after recording, the shutter on the camera will adjust to your selected settings.
