    • To use the storage path that the UnityVision Server uses for video, select Use storage paths set by server.
    • To use a custom storage path, select Use specific paths for this camera and type the storage path.
  4. To set the video retention policy for the camera, perform one of the following tasks in the Video Storage section:
    • To use the video retention policy that the UnityVision Server uses for video, select Use storage limit set by server.
    • To use a video retention policy, select Limit the number of days video is stored and set the number of days to retain video.
  5. To use a custom video retention policy for video associated with alarms, perform the following tasks:
    1. Select Protect Alarm Recordings.
    2. In the Days field, set the time (in days) for which the UnityVision Server retains video associated with alarms.
    3. In the Pre Alarm field, set the time (in seconds) before the alarm that the UnityVision Server includes in the alarm video.
    4. In the Post Alarm field, set the time (in seconds) after the alarm that the UnityVision Server includes in the alarm video.
