Tips and Tricks

  • The bottom bar displays the detected motion level throughout the recording. The bar's height indicates motion intensity, with red bars showing triggered motion detection. Dots on this bar are tags—notes added manually or by AI/events during recording. Tags display their text when the playback cursor reaches a dot. From v5.3.1.0+ there may also be a green line overlay showing the volume of audio in the recording.
  • Click anywhere on the bar to jump to that point in the recording. The UI shows the current position, duration, and recording time over the navigation control.
  • Use the mouse wheel or pinch gesture to zoom in and out of playback. When zoomed in, click and drag to navigate the zoomed area.
  • Click the photo icon to snapshot that moment in the recording.
  • On mobile devices, swipe left or right to cycle through recordings.
  • Access additional features via the bottom right menu. Adjust playback speed, download the recording, navigate between files, manually tag the recording for easy filtering, or play all selected recordings automatically.
