Use the Camera Policies Scheduling tab to define when to record video from your RTSP-enabled IP camera or when to capture from your VMS-managed camera. You can record or capture video always or on a daily basis. As soon as you save the given policy, the schedule you created is implemented.

The Scheduling tab displays different fields to populate depending on the parameter set for the When do you want to record video? option. Select an option to define the times when video is recorded or captured.

From the When do you want to record video? drop-down list, select one of the options to schedule a process. Each are described below.

This option enables you to record or capture video 24 hours a day, seven days a week for as long as the policy is active. To stop a policy that has been set to record video always, you must deactivate, change, or delete the policy. When you select this option, the rest of the Scheduling tab fields are inactive.

3.From the Stop drop-down list, select a stop time.

Once you have selected start and stop times, the Length element displays the total number of hours  that video is to be recorded or captured per day.
