Likewise, recording can be programmed to start as soon as movement is detected or a silhouette seen in the field of the camera, for continuous monitoring 24 hours a day or according to determined time slots.
It is also possible, from the Thomson At Home Security application, to automate the lighting only, for each movement detected, from dusk to sunrise, from 8 p.m. to midnight or on weekends in your absence. .
