  @Goswinter OK, thanks. This is not the problem I am facing. I want to set up an automation: When camera X detects a person, play an alarm on the hub and switch on a bulb. I can set this up in the app but the alarm does not start an the bulb does not switch on.

  @Solla-topee One question: Can the Hub H200 not be used with Wifi? Does it always have to be connected via Ethernet?

 Hi @Goswinter 

 

Have you checked the camera settings-->Detection & Alerts-->Camera Alarm?

 

If it is already disabled, could you share some screenshots of your motion detection settings here? Also send the camera Mac address and your TP-Link ID to me by private message, we'll help to check it!
