The Kami Wire-Free Outdoor camera has a maximum recording duration of 60 seconds. The reason for this is to conserve battery life. At minimum, the camera will record 6 seconds of video footage to a microSD card or to the cloud. By reducing the recording duration to the lowest amount of time to record, this will help to maximize the battery life of your camera. To set the recording duration, from the app home screen, click on the hexagon symbol inside your camera thumbnail. In Settings, click on Recording Duration under Storage. Drag the slider to the desired amount of time (6 seconds to 60 seconds) for recording to your microSD card or Cloud service.
