ClareVision+ SD Card Motion Record Settings Product Bulletin


ClareVision Plus cameras are preconfigured to record motion out of the box. To get recorded files you must insert and format an SD card. Follow the below steps to set your ClareVision Plus camera to record to the SD card.

Note: We do not recommend continuous recording to an SD card due to their limited read/write capabilities and storage space.
