How to add and configure Slideshow Recorder

'Slideshow Recorder' allows you to record a series of frames during a long period of time and convert these frames into a slow-motion slideshow. 

Before adding the recorder, please check 'Video Recording' pre-requisites and requirements. If the 'Video Recording' feature is enabled, and your camera meets all requirements, follow the steps below to add and configure the recorder:


  • Click the Blue ' +ADD RECORDER ' button on the top right-hand side of the page.


  • In the opened dialog:
    • Enter 'Recorder Name' (for internal purposes only).
    • Select 'Recorder Type' - 'Slideshow'.
    • Press "ADD RECORDER".


  • In the recorder settings dialog: 
    • Select 'Recorder Mode'.
      • 'Manual' mode allows you to start/stop the recording manually.
      • 'Schedule' mode allows you to schedule recording session(s).
    • In 'Target Camera', select the camera you wish to record.
    • In 'Capture Period', select a period in minutes to capture a new frame during the recording. 
    • In 'Playback Period', select a period in seconds to show a new frame during playback.



  • If you have selected 'Schedule' mode:
    • Select 'Start Time' and 'Stop Time' of the recording session.
    • If you wish to restrict the date range, select 'Start Date' and 'Stop Date'.
  • If you wish to prevent your viewers from controlling the camera during the recording session:
    • Expand 'Advanced Options'.
    • Check 'Lock Control'.
    • Optionally, specify the name of the preset position. The recorder will move the camera to this position automatically.
  • Ensure that the recorder configuration is correct and check the box 'RECORDER ENABLED' at the top of the dialogue.


  • Scroll down and press 'SAVE CHANGES', and go back to 'RECORDERS'.


In 'Manual' mode, you can start recording immediately by using the 'ACTIONS' menu or the recording toolbar.
