N Series NVRs: Setting a recording schedule

You can set a custom recording schedule so that your security system records video 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 drive space required compared to recording continuously, which increases the time your system can retain recordings for.

To configure the recording schedule:

1 From the Live View display, right-click to open the Quick Menu, then click Main Menu.

2 Click Settings Icon, then click STORAGE. Click the SCHEDULE tab on the side panel.
