“Submit and allow recording” issue in absentia

“Submit and allow recording” issue in absentia

I’m trying to test if HomeKit will record when we’re not home. I use an Aqara G2H camera and AppleTV 4k as a hub. I set the camera to “Stream & allow recording” while I’m away. Then, to test if it would record, I turned off my and my wife’s iPhones, both of which were set as a way to tell us the location. I then went to the camera, but nothing was recorded. Question: How does HomeKit determine if we are “home” so that it can record movement?
