Recording

Cloud Camera Recording tab.png

Recording Mode

Continuous Only – Records video stream continuously.

Continuous + Event – Records one Continuous stream, and then records an Event stream in addition when motion is detected. 

Note: Smart Motion requires the Continuous + Event recording type.

After selecting a recording option, configure the stream and resolution options.

Continuous Video Settings

Continuous Recording Stream – Continuous Recording Stream records at a lower resolution and/or frame rate when motion is not detected and the Continuous + Event recording option is selected.

Enable Minimum Retention Limit – This setting determines the minimum retention period for continuous stream video recordings. Setting a higher number of days increases the likelihood that older event recordings will be removed on a FIFO basis in an effort to maintain the specified retention period.

NOTE: The number of days for the minimum retention period is limited up to 30 days.

Event Video Settings

Event Recording Stream – Higher resolution and/or frame rate camera video stream used to record when a motion or a sensor event is triggered.

Stream Configuration

This is where the settings for high and low-quality streams are configured. The high-quality stream is the recording stream, and the system automatically chooses the lower-quality stream for motion detection. These streams are also used as high and low-quality streams in the live view.

Image Settings

Cloud Camera Image Settings.png

Brightness – Depth of light and shadow in the image. This option can drastically affect the quality of recorded video. The default value is recommended.

Contrast – Adjust the difference between bright and dark areas of the image. This option can drastically affect the quality of recorded video. The default value is recommended.

Saturation – Depth of color in the image. This option can drastically affect the quality of recorded video. The default value is recommended.

Sharpness – Manage image texture, particularly visible in dark scenes. This option can drastically affect the quality of recorded video. The default value is recommended.

Image Mirror – Display the image flipped on the vertical axis.

Image Flip – Display the image flipped on the horizontal axis.

Image Rotate – Rotate the camera image 0, 90, or 270 degrees.

Day / Night (IR Function) – Activate the camera IR (infrared) lights if available, for use with night-time recording.

Sensitivity – Adjust for external light conditions. This option affects the camera's ability to capture images in either low light or brightly-lit areas.

Exposure Settings

Measurement Window – Select Full Frame or Center to determine where the camera measures exposure.

Metering Mode – Choose between Auto, BLC (Backlight Compensation), or HLC (Highlight Compensation). Auto allows the camera to automatically adjust the exposure. BLC will over-expose the brighter areas of the image to expose the darker parts. HLC will dim exposure of brighter areas to provide a clearer image.

High Dynamic Range – Enhance details both in the foreground and background. Using this option results in improved video quality but increases recorded video file size.

3D Noise Reduction – Select Off, Low, Medium, or High to reduce the amount of image haze in low-light conditions.
