FLIR Client 12 Software: Setting a recording schedule

You can set your DVR / NVR system to a custom recording schedule according to your needs using the FLIR Client 12 software for PC / Mac. 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.
