How do I enable local recordings in Ivideon Server?

You can save camera archive recordings to the internal or external hard drive connected to your PC. To do so, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Stop the server if started. Open the Settings window by clicking the Settings button on the toolbar.

  2. On the General tab, enable archive recording by putting a checkmark into the Archive checkbox.


  1. Specify the path to the folder where video recordings will be stored.

  2. Allocate the amount of space to be used for storing recordings.

  3. Click OK to confirm.

The recording mode chosen by default is When detector is triggered. i.e., motion- or sound-based detection. This can be changed for each specific camera/channel in its settings. To locate camera settings of your specific device, please do the following:

  1. When the server is stopped, right-click the name of your camera in the list in the main window of the program;

  2. Choose the Settings… option from the context menu;

  3. Switch to the Recording tab. This is where you will see the list of recording modes available:


NB! The allocated archive size must be less than the free space available on the hard drive in order for the recordings to function properly.

The local archive records loop, meaning that the older recordings get overwritten by newer ones in case the allotted storage space runs out.

You can find more information on archive recordings and their storage in the Recording and Storing archive section of our knowledge base.
