Why can't I see thumbnails for my events or notifications?

If you are unable to see thumbnails for events or notifications, you may have exceeded the daily limit. The Lorex app allows you to process 120 events per device each day. Once this device surpasses 120 events per day, you will still be able to see events, but you will no longer receive thumbnails for the remainder of the day.

*The number of thumbnails processed per day is subject to change at Lorex's discretion

  2. Tap Notifications.
  3. Tap to enable Alert and Event Thumbnails.

Can I apply filters on the Events page?

How can I save an event?
