Record only if something is happening

There are several reasons why you may prefer to not record 24/7, typically

  1. To respect the privacy of your employees, neighbors, or family members

  2. Upload speed of your internet connection is not fast enough to cover continuous recording from all your cameras you want to record

  3. Your total data transfer is limited or you are even paying for a data transfer, e.g. your site has a cellular connection

The logical consequence of event recording is that it's easy to navigate through the recorded video (yet, that's available on continuous recording as well).
