Automatic space management.

Post by nuclearsword » Mon Jan 02, 2012 9:58 pm

Can ZM work for me?

I would want it to record 24/7, 365 but only store a week of video. (deleting the oldest videos)

On pretty low settings, using a small res (320x480 or something), about how many gb's would a week of video take up?

Assuming 85 KB per frame at 15 frames per second, my math is probably off.. but I would guess:
(((( 85 * 15 ) * 60 ) * 60 ) * 24 ) / 1024 / 1024 =~ 105 GB or so per camera per day...

FYI you can also turn on mocord which will record continuously but mark events inside the recording where there was motion. Then setup 2 filters. One that deletes recordings older than a week and another that deletes recordings in which there were zero alarm frames. This is what I do to help regain space from useless recordings on my 24/7 recording camera.
