Have you got iSpy running and able to see your camera/s at this stage?

Sorry life happened and I forgot about this.

Yes I have the camera up and I have motion recording setup but it's iffy. Records A LOT with no movement. Tried playing with the settings for motion but it's still iffy.

I have a dedicated 500gb drive for recording so I was hoping to just have a continuous recording. Or maybe record for 1 hour then start a new one.

Turn all movement detection off. Turn Timelapse on and define the parameters. I have 14 cameras running at 1fps and saving their files after every 6 hours. Filenames are defined and so very easy to manage into folders. Turn grabs off also or you'll end up with 275gazillion-trillion files and your server will spit sparks and go to sleep....

On the 'Recording' tab set recording mode to no recording. Tick the timelapse box. Set movie interval to 1 second (or however often you wish to have the frames apart). Set images interval to 0 seconds. Set Save every to however long you want the video - I save mine every 360 minutes. Set the frame rate to 10. Pretty simple.
