Hi, we have recently installed a floodlight and would like more control over when the light turns on. Currently we have the light turning on when detecting people or animals in a predefined zone. Ideally we would like the camera to record events outside the zone but only turn on the floodlight when detecting events inside the zone.
Is this possible or could it be a new feature?

Thanks for reaching out. I think I might be requesting a new feature here? I want the floodlight to turn on for one zone but not the other. From what I can see you can only set the floodlight to come on when it detects an event in any zone.
I want to record events with the camera for events outside of my back garden zone for example but I don't want the floodlight to turn on.
