Anyone having issue's with the outdoor wired camera's? we just did the 3.0.2.4679 update now it will not record events and will not let you click on what to record either motion or person. This update basically made my camera's useless, i can look at it live but doesn't record anything.

Re: camera's not working after update. Anyone having the same issue?

Hi @beck5,

Warm greetings from the Roku Community!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, and we'd love to see more of what's going on here.

We would recommend reinstalling the app and then trying again to see if you're still seeing the same issue.

If the issue persists, try to perform a system restart on your device to see if there are any differences after doing that.

Please keep us posted on what you find out.

Best regards,

Rey

Getting issues as well in all the cameras after the new update. it won't send alerts for pets at all now, and is missing tons of recordings. the wired doorbell still won't stream on any tvs either but does still send alerts for pets.

Re: camera's not working after update. Anyone having the same issue?

All the settings are correct, for the app and the roku streaming devices. Since the new firmware update, all of the cameras, indoor and outdoor, which all have the new firmware version 3.0.2. 4679, have stopped recording and sending notifications for PET events only. All other events appear to be working correctly. * have a valid smart home subscription and they were working before the update. Power cycles and restarts have not fixed the issue.

Re: camera's not working after update. Anyone having the same issue?

I am using 3 roku indoor cameras SE and two outdoor cameras SE. All 5 are no longer detecting pets or sending notifications for pets since the latest firmware update. vehicles, packages, and persons, are detected. The roku wired doorbell still sends notifications for pets, but doesn't stream on the roku devices.

Has this ever been resolved? Mine will not record anything after the updates and both of mine have a subscription. My cameras are pretty much useless now.

Reinstalling the App?  What about all the groups and rules?  Do we have to setup everything again and again and again?  This all started with a firmware update that Roku botched.
