Accessing Photos

To access Photos, click on the view menu in the top bar and select the Photos icon.

Photos provides details and thumbnail previews of all photos recorded by Agent.

Files are saved locally on your computer. To locate your photos, see Server Settings - Storage. Photos are typically stored in the "grabs" subdirectory within the recordings folder. They can be saved manually, automatically (via interval, motion, or alert triggers), or as a result of AI processing (such as object recognition, alert filters, LPR, facial recognition, etc.).
