Question
How do I configure time lapse recording?

Answer

To set up a time lapse an admin user will need to create a new schedule, the green parts show when it will trigger to take a picture, in the example below the schedule is configured for taking a picture every 30 minutes:



Then you will need to create a new event to control taking the pictures,The event trigger will be
"Start actions when", and your trigger set to the actual Schedule.:



In the actions tab you select the camera to record one snapshot. The camera needs to support JPEG streaming so you can only select one snapshot.

H264 or MPEG4 streams cannot be used as you can only set a duration on the recording. Most IP cameras have a second JPEG stream.
The playback should be fine as the maximum delay between snapshots would be 2 seconds, and this could be played back at a faster rate.
