Feature Request: "Like" or "Favorite" or "Save" saved recordings
  • Most of our recordings are uninteresting and we would want those to auto delete as space fills up.

    Then there are recordings where something interesting happened.

    It would be nice to mark certain saved recordings where interesting things happen with a "Favorite" or "Like" (for lack of a better term). Those recordings could be exempt from auto-delete and also have a special place where they could be viewed.

    Many dashcams have this sort of functionality. Thank you for your consideration!
  • Thanks for the suggestion. Currently, you can tag files (Red, Green etc.) in the Browser feature, but this is just for your own reference, and doesn't affect auto-deletion. We'll see if we can come up with a way to easily mark recordings to be exempt from auto-deletion.
  • On the dashcam this feature is usually denoted with a lock or key icon that shows on the recording so "lock" could be another term for this sort of feature
  • Also worth noting - on the dashcams I have, that feature simply marks the file as "Locked" on the filesystem, then the delete routines just ignore locked files.
  • Hi @chriscareycode - we have now implemented this functionality in the latest beta version of SecuritySpy (currently 5.2.2b4).

    Under Preferences -> Storage, there is a new option to exclude certain tags from automatic deletion. Then, via the Browser window, you right-click on any file in order to give it a tag. So, or example, you can choose the Red tag to be excluded, and then any file that you tag in Red will not be deleted.

    Please confirm that this works as expected.
  • Very useful, thank you!

    Would it be possible to add tags within the iOS app as well please as I’m reviewing captured motion on there rather than the browser. Thanks.
  • Thanks for the suggestion @paul2020, I think this would be a useful addition in a future update, I'll add it to the "to do" list.

Howdy, Stranger!
