Day and Night Reports

The Day / Night or Image Verification Report shows a day and night image from each camera and compares that to a reference image for each. This provides an easy way to identify changes to a camera’s field of view due to dirt, branches, or other image issues.

Common use cases include: spot tampering or vandalism quickly, review for foliage or anything else that may have accidentally blocked the view, and verify camera functionality at the start of a security shift.

Best Practices
  • Set reminder emails at opportune times of day to ensure cameras are capturing the best images possible.
  • Create default reports to share with admins, managers or user groups.
  • Add user groups so new employees can be easily added and get access to important reports.
