NVR suddenly not recording motion detection with Tapo C210
I have a Tapo C210 camera. I have an 4gb microSD card in the camera which can record up to approx 24hrs worth of footage, which is ample for my use, and I have no issues with the camera recording motion detection events and then viewing the playback on the Tapo app etc...everything works fine there.
I also have a Qvis NVR (Network Video Recorder) which is ONVIF compatible and I was able to easily add this Tapo C210 camera to one of my channels which enabled me to see the Live stream and up to very recently, my Qvis NVR was able to record all the motion detection trigger events too, which was great.
I have four other CCTV cameras, and instead of using all their individual camera apps, I was able to log in to the QVIS NVR app (which is called "Superlive Plus") and view all my various cameras live streams in the one place and playback all their recordings, either viewing them directly on my NVR itself or via the SuperLive Plus app whenever I was away from home.
My NVR picked up all the motion detection events from my Tapo C210 camera and recorded them directly onto the NVR with no issue.
Plus, my Live Stream screen on my NVR monitor showed the motion trigger icon (a little yellow person running) whenever motion was detected, plus, in addtion to this, I was able to use the PTZ functions etc.
Basically, anything that took place on the Tapo App, I was able to see or do on my NVR device or via the SuperLive Plus app.
Then one day my daughter accidently plugged out my Tapo camera. I hadn't noticed it was plugged out for a few days, but once I did, I just plugged it back into the wall, and the Tapo camera went through it's reboot sequence and started up again.
The live stream appeared back on my NVR and on my SuperLive Plus app, and also on the Tapo App. I didn't notice any issues. But on Monday this week, I went into view something and I noticed that there was no recordings for the past few days from just the Tapo camera. All my other cameras had their recordings there as usual.
So, the motion detection recording functionality had suddenly stopped working via only the Tapo C210 camera....I can still view the live stream, and I can manually record a live event, but when I go to preview any motion detection events, it is no longer being recorded on the NVR.
Plus the live stream screen no longer shows the motion trigger icon (the little yellow person running) anymore on my NVR. Why are the motion triggers are not being picked up on the NVR anymore?
There has been no changes to the firmware on NVR - that had been working away as normal, and all my other cameras record as normal, so I checked the firmware update on the Tapo C210 and noticed there was an update available.
Thinking this might be the solution as to why the motion detection function and event recording was suddenly not working, I accepted the update. Unfortunately, this update didn't do anything to re-activate the motion detection recording function on my NVR. It is still not triggering the motion detection, so there is no recordings.
However, All motion detection events are still being triggered and recorded on the Tapo app via my SD card.
One new thing I noticed was in
where you type your Username and Password, there is message that I had never seen before saying:
"Note: Tapo Care works best with one of the NVR or microSD card recording, not both. At this point, the NVR recording will be disabled. To restart recording on the NVR, remove the microSD card from the camera"
I thought that perhaps with the new firmeware update, that this was the reason that the NVR has suddenly stopped recording....so I took the microSD card out.
But there was no change.
The NVR is still not picking up any motion detection trigger events from the Tapo C210 camera.....but this message gives me hope that there is still NVR recording functionality available.
Something has changed in my settings, and I can't see what it is.
I'm hoping that someone can help me with this....how can I get the motion detection function from the Tapo C210 camera to start working again on my NVR?
What am I missing???
Is there a setting I need to reset? Thanks so much in advance for any advice you can offer.
