Title: Motion detection + looped (overwriting) recording
Post by: cptstubing on November 04, 2017, 12:39:09 PM

Hi,
I am using the web portal to configure my camera.
I noticed that if I record 24/7, the camera can be set to record over the oldest files.  This way it keeps recording non-stop and I don't have to worry about deleting files.

I recently set the camera to record only when the motion detection is triggered.
However, I noticed that there it will eventually fill up the card and not overwrite older files.

Is it possible to use the motion detection recording trigger and also have the camera record over old files?

Thanks,

Gabe

What Mfr and model is the main host router?

what happens if you set to record 24/7 instead of my motion detection?

This is also an issue for me.  It seems that the DCS-2530L just stops recording to the SD card when it fills up.  It does not delete the oldest files and continue to record like the DCS_936L or DCS-942L.  Is there an option somewhere which I am not aware of to tell it to continue recording?  This is a major problem. It means that if I don't monitor and clean up the SD card regularly the camera will not have the recorded videos when I need them!

I am using hardware version 1 and firmware 1.03.01, with a Netgear R7000 router, in the NA region.

Thanks,

Mike
