Yes I have a case for recording longer and feel it’s critical if the cameras are being used for security. I’ll give one example.
Say you have a camera watching your driveway and the detection zone is set to a narrow field to eliminate traffic on the road, birds flying by, neighbor dog, etc. Your real interest is detection zone. Highest sensitivity. A car pulls in and stops at xx;xx;55 and no further movement in the detection zone. You get 1 minute of recording showing the car pulling in and stopping at the end of the minute segment. When the car leaves you get another 1 minute of recording. In between the two 1 minute segments, activity outside of the detection zone is missing. Was there another car stopped on the road? Was there related activity outside the zone?
IF I could record 10+ minutes I would know.
What I don’t understand is as a user I pay for the SD card and only have two options to use it. 1 minute segments or continuous.
The segment length should just be a caching variable in the firmware, I don’t see how it would be integral to the design.
Thanks for your help, just trying to help make a great product even better!
