To store recordings on a video unit, you must enable edge recording in the unit's settings. Security Center can retrieve these recordings and transfer them to an Archiver.

What you should know

You can set the video recording to be continuous, or triggered by specific events, such as inputs, motion, analytics, and so on. Edge recording can only be enabled from the unit’s web page.


  1. Open the Video task.
  2. Select the video unit and click Unit > Unit’s web page () in the toolbar at the bottom of the workspace.
  3. After opening to the unit's web page, follow the instructions from the unit’s manufacturer to enable recording.
  4. Close the web browser window when you are done.
