How do I search my video?

Click the Feed tab and then click the Search button. You can either type your search or click the buttons on the Search panel.

For example, to see people approaching your walkway from your camera named outdoor, you type:

outdoor people approaching walkway as in this video:

You can also type simple dates and times like:

  • 9:30am
  • 3pm yesterday
  • 4pm Monday
  • 12/24 11pm

Or type colors like red, white, black, brown and blue.

You can also search for cars and people along with direction of movement like approaching or departing

It doesn't matter whether you type your search or click the Search panel buttons. For example, rather than type "brown" you can click the color instead:

You can pin your favorite searches to the top of your Search History by clicking on the thumbtack icon to the left of a recent search:

The pinned searches (e.g. "cars approaching driveway") then become the trigger for the alerts on your phone. Read more at Search-based Video Alerts.

Even without typing a specific search, Camio shows you only the important moments by default ("Top" events is the default search). To see everything recorded, regardless of whether it was deemed interesting to you, include "all" in your search or click the "All" button at the top of your screen, to the right of the search bar.
