Amcrest Cloud Multi-view Timeline

Currently in beta. Please let us know your feedback at [email protected]

The Timeline is the main interface to the service. This is where you can add, edit and manage your cameras, watch live video and review recorded events that are saved in the cloud.

By default a new view will be shown with all your cameras. As soon as you go to the timeline all cameras will show a live view.

What if this is not the layout I want? No problem, the timeline supports a custom view where you can move windows around, resize them so you can create your own custom view. Now you can save that layout and next time you come to the timeline you  have your own custom view!

What about your cloud storage? All the blue lines you see in the camea list show you the motion recorded events. Click on any one event and it will play.

Look at this example where I have 2 cameras with events almost at the same time. As you can see the cameras are posititioned pretty close to one another and I get to watch the video of the vehicle going through the frame at the same time! The other camera windows are just black screens since there are no events at that time.

Your camera list contains the ability to add, edit, delete or any other camera specific option. Simply click the little arrow to the right of the camera name to bring up the options.

When you select this option it opens up in a full screen.

In this example you can edit your motion detection area and save that as the area of detection. Click the x button to close this window and go back to your multi-view.

That's it for now, play around and let us know what you think!
