OMG Snow!!

Post by LisaNels » Wed Jan 04, 2017 4:46 pm

I've not found a way to keep snowfall from triggering lots of images... it will fill any size storage device I might use.

In the filters if I could run a filter that checks for XXX events in the last TIMEFRAME delete them.

Or maybe I should look into a plugin?

Does it really matter if it fills your disk? Just make sure that you keep the purge-when-full filter set to a level where in the time between runs, it won't overflow the disk. Also, storing your event video using h264 will ensure that you can record a LOT of data. For instance, my cameras record 2 GB/hour for 1080p and 4 GB/hour for 4k. Between those 2 (my other cameras are somewhat sheltered and don't record for the duration of snowstorms), that runs me at 6 GB/hour. My 8 TB disk will therefore record over 1300 hours (close to 2 months). Now the reality is that snowstorms don't last for 2 months on end. Really, that's nearly the full duration of WINTER.
