Just wanted to jot these down as I come across possible improvements / enhancements.
Trim down the alert video to 5 seconds each side of the trigger instead of 30 seconds. Watching a day’s worth of events would be shortened by 80%, since my events last less than 1 minute each. As it is now, I have to sit through 60 seconds of nothing to see 5 seconds of something.
It’s hard to line up the timeline to replay short motion detected events that are less than a minute. The sliding timeline does not automatically “snap” to the nearest event. I often have to try several times to get the little blue line to sit just right under the red line. Very frustrating.
There is no way for me to save off a copy of a motion-detected event without disconnecting my camera, removing the SD card, putting the SD card into my computer, searching for the timestamp directory with the event, and copying off the file. And if I want to create a movie with an entire day of motion-detected events, I have to import hundreds of files, one by one, in the right order, into my video editing software to build the final movie. Very frustrating (and so time consuming that I don’t even try since the first time).
