If you see something worth noting, you can add a bookmark to the live or playback video that you are watching, so that you can review it later.

What you should know

If a camera is currently not recording (for example, it is set to record only when motion is detected), adding a bookmark forces the camera to begin recording. Also, if your camera is set to record when motion is detected (on motion mode), a five-minute video sequence is recorded when you add a bookmark.
