Hello!

In camera settings -> Record, there is a setting for "JPEG snapshot". Is it possible to include the motion zone that triggered the record? I've attempted to use &TYPE (like &CAM.&TYPE.%Y%m%d_%H%M%S%t) in the filename however this only ends up creating a filename like "back_hd._TYPE.20201021_213913823".

If it's not possible I'll find an alternative solution. My overall goal is to be able to log all the motion events in BI whilst saving out photos for use in DeepStack however I only want DeepStack to fire for specific motion zones.

Thanks for your time

Page 115 of the help PDF states that macro ‘&TYPE’ should return the following

This macro may be intended only for use in action sets. If you want to suggest it for file naming, you should try emailing Ken using the ‘Email support’ button from the ‘About’ tab in settings.

I’ve tested this macro in a push message and it works fine.
