Does this mean that the HomeBase has its own battery to keep it working during power outages, but it doesn’t work anyway because it needs WiFi, which typically doesn’t work during an outage? If this is the case, this is a serious design flaw…
I can confirm this same situation. My homebase lost connection to my wifi for several hours. During that time there were multiple events that should have been recorded. When wifi was restored there were no recorded events for the time of the wifi outage.
“The camera should keep recording within 1-2 hours when the network is disconnected. When the nework is coming back, you are able to watch the videos recorded during this period. But to remind the customers to check the network, the app would show the homebase is offline unless the networks is coming back. And also the camera will not record any video when the time of network disconnected is beyond 2 hours.
Could you please do a test? You can disconnect the network and move in the front of camera to see if you can watch the video when the network comes back.”
The HomeBase, cameras and sensors have built-in batteries, so the system will continue to surveil your property for 2 days.
Motion detection and video recording will work as usual during a power outage. If the internet is down, your HomeBase will save video clips onto local storage and then sync up to the cloud* once the internet is back on. *Cloud subscription is required.
So, what is this 2-hour thing? Is this another instance of @AnkerSupport failing to keep their promises, as for the IFTTT support?
In regards to the issues of the cam not showing recorded events when the internet is disconnected from the cams:
We found this to be a bug - The video was recording but when the internet was restored, the recorded videos were never syncing to the app. We have fixed this in our latest update, which should be pushed to all systems over the next couple of days. Thanks for catching this everyone!
@Springfield the functionality of the camera is not how our support is describing it in this situation. The camera will continue to record as normal until the HomeBase’s battery has died during a power outage.
Could you provide the ticket number, as this was probably a simple mistake of the rep mistakenly saying ‘hours’ when they meant days.
