Reolink Year in Review 2023
How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.43 Released
I’ve just connected my four cameras to my Reolink NVR, but they all keep recording 30 minute videos, is it the pack duration ? plus motion activated smaller clips, how can I stop it recording these as it’s filling up the HDD quickly and unnecessarily, any help would be great thanks
I don't know what was happening with me I am also facing this kind of things what to do now? If you get any information please tell me about that. LandstarOnline Portal
@davidjames1701_221130933932163 I believe the "Pack Duration" is just the maximum chunk of video it saves as a single file before closing the file and starting a new one. For short duration clips, like those caused by a few minutes of motion it doesn't change anything. The clip will just be the length of the detected motion plus any "Pre-Motion" (4 to 8 seconds) or "Post Motion" (can be set to 1 to 10 minutes) recording.If you are getting constant 30 minute videos being recorded then I would look at the Scheduling. For each camera there is one schedule that sets when the camera should record motion, it's called "Alarm". Then there is another schedule for setting when the camera will do continuous recording, called "Timer". Any block in the schedule that is blue is a block of time when the camera will record continuously or when triggered by motion depending on what schedule the block is in. If you don't want any continuous recording then make sure that all time blocks for that cameras "Timer" schedule are grey. And set all the "Alarm" schedule blocks to blue if you want it to always record when triggered by motion. Also remember to save any changes as you go.
@radioastronomy_410111540293820 How my RLN36 works is when both Alarm and Trigger are set and when motion is triggered it will stop my 60 minute pack (port motion included). So I have to go around 3-5 minutes from the end of the stopped packed clip and find the motion alert. I wish it would just keep my 60 minute packs and make a new motion clip but it doesn't work that way. At least I haven't found an option for that. Another thing is I wish the Playback would start at the last pack and not at the first one so you wouldn't have to scroll every time to find the pack you want. Was just a learning curve to understand what was going on.
Go to the settings-Surveillance-Record, choose the specific camera record according to your need, and disable the record of other cameras. You can also set the schedule to let your camera record at a specific period.
NVR Pack Duration typically refers to the length of time that video footage is stored on a Network Video Recorder (NVR) before it is overwritten or deleted to make space for new footage. The duration can vary depending on factors such as the storage capacity of the NVR, the quality of the video being recorded, and the number of cameras being used. It is important to consider the required duration when selecting an NVR and setting up a surveillance system.
