Lorex Home app - Events

Events are automatically saved in the Lorex Home app in the Events page when a Smart Motion Detection event is detected.


How many days of events can I access?

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. Lorex Home allows you to process 120* thumbnails per device each day. Once this device surpasses 120 events per day, you will still be able to see events, but you will be 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
