Product Roadmap: What's Coming Next
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
Hello, all.I just set up the NVR with 7 PoE cameras (8th will be installed later) and was curious if anyone has any best practice settings for recording and saving storage space. My system has been up barely 2 weeks and already the 3TB drive is full. Currently, I have it set with recording enabled and to overwrite. I have Detection settings with a sensitivity setting of around 20.First, if I were to disable recording, would it still record motion detection? Would this save storage space with only detection recordings? If so, what are the best settings for sensitivity to ensure I get good records of all motion, excluding wind in tree and insect movement?Also, are there ways to either replace or add additional storage to have more than 3TB of space for recordings to ensure more than 2 weeks of recordings?Is there any documentation anywhere, blog post or whatever, of the best settings for the NVR and PoE cameras?I also have a Synology NAS on my network with about 4TB of free space. It would be nice if there was a way to backup just detection videos to my NAS. Is anyone aware of a way to do this over the network? I saw FTP settings in the Reolink client but, truthfully, I would rather there be an ssh/rsync option to run a script to create backups to the NAS.Thanks in advance for any a*sistance.
1. The NVR can record only alarm recordings (motion detection recordings). It will use less space since the NVR will not record all the time under this circumstance.Please allow me to explain briefly how the camera detection works: the camera detects the motion based on the image changes (the background) in each frame. So when the object reaches a certain degree the camera will be triggered. So for the POE camera (not a smart detection camera), the false alarm caused by the wind and insects can't be avoided.2. Our older version NVR supports HDD up to 4TB. You can try to expand the capacity of the HDD.3. You can go to our support center https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/ to have a look.

Thanks for the reply.So, again, if I disable recording within the Client (see attachment), the NVR will still record motion, thereby, saving space?Screenshot-2021-02-04-073022.png
You need to enable Record, or the camera will not record at all.But you need to select all the grids in Motion and no grids in Timer. Then the NVR will record motion only.QQ图片20210206133224.png
