Open & Closed Business Hours Camera Views

The Continuous Recording camera mode is indicated by the red status circle at the top right of the screen capture made at 10:05am, which is as it should be during Open business hours from 8am to 9:59pm. The (EM) action symbol for “Send an E-Mail” action in the status bar is grayed out to indicate the e-mail action is inactive, i.e. disabled by the Time Table. Aside: The camera image has been pixilated for privacy reasons.

Mobotix Camera – Setup – Event Control – Recording – Continous Recording

At 5:19am during Closed business hours, the camera display has a yellow status circle to indicate Event Recording is active. The (EM) action symbol for “Send an E-Mail” action in the status bar is colored yellow out to indicate the e-mail action is enabled. Additional testing during Closed hours (10pm to 7:59am) confirmed the AlarmMail is sent with the camera image when a video motion window is triggered by movement in the image, for example, by a person walking in the field of view.
