You can set a custom recording schedule according to your needs. For example, you can set the system to record continuously during business hours and record on motion detection only outside of business hours. A custom recording schedule helps reduce the amount of hard disk drive (HDD) space required, increasing the time your system can retain recordings.
To set or modify the recording schedule:
Right-click on the Live View to access the Quick Menu.
Click Main Menu and then click the Setting icon ().
Click Storage > Schedule.
Click the Record tab.
In the Channel drop-down, select the channel to record, or select All to configure all channels with the same settings.
Configure the schedule as needed:
Once configured, click Apply to save the settings, and then click OK to exit.
