I'd love to use my Hero 7 Black as a camera to watch the foxes in my garden at night, is there a way I can setup the camera to work with motion detection so it only records movement and not continually. I thought a few years back it was built into my GoPro 3 but can't find any info on this topic, it would seem like something that should be fairly easy to impliment but I can't find anything other than 3rd party kit costing $100+

Unfortunately no model GoPro supports motion detection. However if you buy a cheap $30 webcam the software usually includes motion detection, there's also freeware apps for Windows that work with such webcams and also support motion detection. Remember, the GoPro is actually a sports action cam, not a security camera.

@supershore23817, that's an interesting question. This is currently not a feature on any GoPro cameras.
Your feedback and suggestion are very much appreciated though. I'll pass this along to the team.
Feel free to post back if you have any further questions.
