Create/Edit a Video Recording Rule

To record saved clips from video cameras, recording rules must be set up for each video camera. To create video recording rules, it requires you to log in to your Brinks Home™ App.

Recording Rule Types

The type of recording rules you can create depends on your video camera model and what other devices are associated with your system. You can create camera-triggered or system-triggered recording rules.

System-triggered clips:

  • • Alarm
  • • Sensor opened/closed
  • • System armed/disarmed
  • • Entry delay
