Test mode uses cameras

Why does test mode start camera recording? Every time I test a entry it starts camera recording.

Hi there,

Yes, the Test Mode signal is categorized as an 'alarm' by the system - or rather, a simulation of it. So when you test that your system is able to send a signal to Monitoring, you can make sure that your cameras get the message too!

OK, I have thirteen entry sensors and three motion sensors. Kind of a pain deleting all the videos. Be nice if you could tag them, then delete the tag videos.

@tls Ah, do you mean that you're looking for a way to select multiple recordings so you can remove them all at once? That's a good suggestion, and I'll pass it on to our devs.

@davey_d This needs to be added. Both for test mode and for general tidiness of not having hundreds of unwanted videos in the timeline.
