When does live or saved video contain audio?
Live video contains audio when streamed in the Alarm.com app. Saved and downloaded video contains audio when the video device records a clip based on a cloud recording rule (i.e., camera- or event-triggered). A cloud recording rule is any rule that records and uploads an individual video clip to the customer account to view later.
All video device audio requires a service package that supports audio for non-doorbell cameras and a video device that can record sound.
