Motion Notifications on newly installed home security camera?

We just had a new security camera installed and added to our existing xfinity home security system.  Now trying to turn on motion notifications for the camera so that it will send us a text when it identifies motion at our front door.  We are having trouble doing this.  We follow in the on-line instructions but don't have the same screen options that they are stating it takes to do so.  Not sure if it matters but we don't have an Xfi modem/router, just the xfinity supplied modem with our router.  Please help, as the camera does us no good if it doesn't notify us when there is motion.

Hello! Thanks for visiting our Forums Page for assistance with the new security camera installation. It's definitely important to have the correct motion settings set up. To confirm, is this an Xfinity Camera or a different brand?

yes, it's an xfinity camera - was told for the first time that the new cameras they install are not compatible to setting a "rule" for motion sensor notices on the Xfinity Home app - also told couldn't set it up on the Xfinity app due to not having the Xfi modem/router - very poor training and communication up front from Xfinity - doesn't surprise me though and consistent with all prior experiences

Wow, great response time, Xfinity.  Good thing I already followed up with the help line.  I'm now having to upgrade my modem/router to the Xfi from Xfinity to be able to get motion notices from my security camera (which was never disclosed at any time) and will now cost $14/mo.  There should be no wonder that Xfinity always ranks near the bottom on customer service experiences....
