Arching Video from Search Results

After searching for Vehicle activity data, Commander allows users to archive video from the search result map.

Remember that mousing over the icons discloses time and date of the corresponding events and clicking on them shows more detailed information.

Selecting Download Start and End Points

To archive video from search results:

  1. Move the mouse cursor over the icons to find out where you want to set the initial point of the video to be archived.
  2. Right-click on the preferred icon and then on the disclosed Set Point to Download Video dialog.
    A red circle appears around the icon.
  1. Choose another icon as the final point of the segment to be downloaded.
  2. Right-click on the selected icon and then on the Set Point to Download Video dialog that is disclosed.

After both points have been selected, a new Schedule Download window opens. This window holds several information fields that can be used to configure the download (see following figure).

Scheduling Download

Once the Schedule Download window opens, enter the required information in the provided fields:

  1. Enter a File Name on the right. If you do not enter a file name, a default name (ID number, start date and time, end date and time) will be applied to the archive.
  2. Select a Download Category from the drop-down menu. Notice that the Vehicle was already selected.
  3. If needed, you can type Notes in the provided text-box.
  4. Select download Priority from low, normal or high. High priority allows downloading video before any other data.
  5. Select the Resolution of the file and the cameras to be included.
  6. Set the Recurrence of the download to Once, Weekly or Monthly.
  7. Configure Email Notifications, by selecting after which download events the emails will be sent, and add the appropriate email recipients.
  8. Click Save below.

Notice that, depending on the Recurrence you select, the Archive Time and Date Range will be different and so will the available fields. Let’s take a look at the different options:

If you select Once you can set:

  • Archive Time only, by entering Start and End date and time.

If you select Weekly you can set:

  • Archive Time, by selecting preferred days of the week (one or more) and Start and End time.
  • Date Range, by entering Start and End date.

If you select Monthly you can set:

  • Archive Time, by selecting day of the month or day of the week of every specified number of months, and entering Start and End time.
  • Date Range, by entering Start and End date.

The archive request will appear in the Archive Manager list. The video will be downloaded from the DVR the next time this is connected to the network.
