missing history with screenshots and quick start button of the related video

I am not satisfied with the way how the history is shown in the Android App (and in the PC client). I miss an additional way to browse the histories with screenshots. This is possible in apps for other cameras or for video doorbells. Have a look at this CloudEdge screenshot as an example:

I get a lot of motion detection for each flying insect or for rain drops or flying leafs. But if I lower the sensibility I don't get motions detected for all people, fox, raccoon and other animal motions I want to see. So I need to select a higher sensitivity and I get much more false positive flags. When it is raining or when there is some wind I get permanent motion flags. And it is not possible to view all these videos. That's why there should be an easy optical way to check motion events. The screenshot should show the picture which caused the motion flag (in case of motion detection by frame comparing).
Currently, I use a complicated workaround:
- I use the FTP upload (which is not available for wireless cameras, but why you can't allow? I think for energy saving. But you could implement some batch upload of motion pictures and videos. Viewing the videos on the SD cards will also cost lot of energy)
- I check the pictures of the FTP uploads with one setting showing me only the pictures but not the videos
- When I found an interesting motion I try to have a look at the video.
But this process is too complicated because I can't easily switch from picture to video. And there is no FTP upload available for Argus cameras. If you write videos on the SD card, if you can send pictures or videos by Email or upload them via ftp, why not to store them also on the SD card and implement a history with screenshots?
