Early Notification Setting Now Available

We’re excited to announce our newest feature available for XT2 users, Early Notification. This option allows you to receive alerts as soon as motion is detected on your XT2 (as opposed to once a recording has completed). With this feature enabled, you will also be brought to a live view when you tap the motion notification, allowing you to respond to events in real time. To enable this feature, go to your camera settings and switch the “Early Notification” toggle to “on”.

We recommend this configuration if you frequently use two-way talk, or if you typically respond to alerts as soon as they are received. If Early Notification is not activated, you will continue to receive alerts once a motion clip has finished recording.
