Trigger recording for different cameras motion detection?

Cupertino, July 27, 2023

I looked into the automations and couldn’t figure out a way to do it - but wanted to ask the community.

I’m looking to see if there’s a way to trigger my doorbell camera to start recording whenever my garage camera detects motion, and vice versa. The recordings will start late or sometimes miss things, which isn’t a huge deal - but this could help alleviate that lag/gap.

I could also setup an outdoor motion detector and use that as a trigger to start recordings, however not sure if anybody has actually tried that before. Thanks all!
