Presence enables sharing your cameras and other connected devices with other Presence users. You can choose to share as many or as few devices as you like with any number of friends. Friends who you've shared your camera with will receive notifications of any motion detection recordings. They will also be able to watch these new recordings until you stop sharing your camera.
