Can I record in the cloud only at scheduled times of the day?

Yes, you can add an Auto-upload Query Filter using the schedule: search operator and apply it to the Box gateway and/or individual video streams.

Single Schedule

For example, to record every day only at night from 9pm to 6am, you enter this on the page:

9pm to 6am

The time zone of your browser is used to interpret the time you enter. If the people setting the recording schedule work from multiple time zones, then be sure to include the timezone name pacific, mountain, central, or eastern.

schedule: 9pm pacific to 6am pacific

You can also qualify the day of the week on which the schedule applies like this:

schedule: 9pm pacific to 6am pacific Mondays Tuesdays Wednesdays Thursdays Fridays

which is the same as this:

schedule: 9pm pacific to 6am pacific weekdays


Multiple Schedules

The Auto-upload Query Filter may contain multiple schedules separated by commas. The subsequent schedules override the preceding schedules; so the last one specified in the comma-separated list wins in the case of overlapping conflicts. For example, let's examine the effective schedule resulting from this:

schedule:9pm central to 6am central weekdays,6am central to 6am central weekends

The schedule above will:

  1. record from 9pm to 6am the following morning on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (ending 6am Saturday);
  2. record 24 hours daily Saturday and Sunday (ending 6am Monday);



The day of the week specified in the schedule applies to the start time of the schedule, so a schedule that spans midnight like "9am to 6am Mondays" means to start recording at 9am Monday and stop recording at 6am Tuesday.

You can abbreviate weekdays like this:

  • mo tu we th fr sa su
  • mon tue wed thu fri sat sun
  • weedays
  • weekends
