Search View

Perform a search to review recorded video, including playback and export of images and video clips. 

Four different searches (Timeline Search, Thumbnail Search, Object Search and Event Search) are available through the Web Client or Command Station Desktop.

NOTE: Date/Time Search is a standard search feature available only through Console.

Types of Search
Timeline Search

Timeline Search narrows searches to a specific day and time. In Timeline Search, continuous recording without an event is represented by dark blue lines on the timeline bar, and Motion events are represented by light blue lines. The video from the selected date and time is playable in the camera tile.

Event Search

Event Search is ideal for reviewing sensor or relay events such as motion in a filtered, easily consumable format.

Thumbnail Search

Thumbnail search is ideal for viewing before and after comparisons at user-determined intervals. This search can help a user narrow down a time period during which something changed in the scene, such as vandalism or theft.

Object Search

Object Search allows you to look for object motion in recorded video. By defining the region and the timeframe, you can derive object motion activity for a defined time period.
