    Okay. My boss had me set up one camera that looks straight down on just a door. Motion will not trigger recording. I have another camera that has a wider view of the area in front and I would like motion triggered in that camera to start recording in the other camera.

    Trying to figure out how to set up groups to do this. Can someone point me to a video or post that will explain this?

    R Click cam image>Camera Properties>Trigger>Check Trigger Camera Groups> Select and you are good to go.

    Can you point me to how to set up groups? Obviously, I can't seem to put in the right search terms. One of those days.

    Camera properties > General tab > Select... (located next to Groups) > type something in the New group: field and click add.

    Also consider your settings on the door camera. If setup properly it will trigger as needed.
