How To Download An Event Using the Web UI

Events can be downloaded directly to your computer using the built-in web user interface (web UI) using a web browser. Please note, this feature may not be available on most mainstream web browsers as it requires a plugin to download a recording. In this case, it is highly recommended to use a legacy browser such as Internet Explorer when downloading a recording. If Internet Explorer is not an option, recordings can be downloaded using our free Amcrest Surveillance Pro software. For more information on how to download a recording using Surveillance Pro, click here.

To download events you must have a microSD card inserted into your camera. A microSD card must be class 10 or above and be properly formatted to FAT32 before use. For more information on how to format a microSD card click here.

Note: If your camera does not require a plugin all downloaded files will save to your current browser's download folder. However, if your camera requires a plugin, the download path can be adjusted. To adjust the download path, click on Setup >> Camera>> Video>>Path.


In the Path menu, in the Playback Download section, click on Browse to designate a new path for your downloads. Click Save after a new download path has been set.
