For local and federated cameras that are controlled by an Auxiliary Archiver, you can manually start recording video on the Auxiliary Archiver from Security Desk when you see something of interest.


  1. Select a camera displayed in a tile.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Right-click inside the tile to open the tile context menu, and then click Camera > Auxiliary recording.

      You can also press Shift+F10 to open the tile context menu. Then press Tab until Camera is selected and press Enter, and then press Tab until Auxiliary recording is selected and press Enter.

    • Right-click the recording state icon inside the tile, and then click Auxiliary recording.

    • Right-click the recording state button in the camera widget, and then click Auxiliary recording.

  3. Click the record button () next to the Auxiliary Archiver role name.
    If the camera is associated with multiple Auxiliary Archivers, select which Auxiliary Archiver to record on.


The video starts recording on the Auxiliary Archiver you selected, and is saved in the Auxiliary Archiver database.
