  1. Automatic archive retention (now implemented).
    Prevent filling up the storage device of old archives. This does not seem to be retaining the video. after one day of archive it is removed even when the retention is set for”FOREVER”


    1. This sounds odd. The retention is only active when auto-archiving is enabled. “Forever” means to continue saving images until the storage space is full. When this happens, or if there are other problems that prevents images from being saved, a disruption event will be fired. Recordings should never be automatically deleted unless archived with retention limit.
      It sounds like there is some other issues. Are there any traces in the system log of the camera? How much storage space do you have? Are you using SD Card or NAS?


  2. I need to setup an alert when the application stops runnning.

    Is there a way to get the application state for an event trigger?
    Trigger: VideoLapseMe
    Active: Yes/No

    similar to VMD3 and other applications.



    1. Yes, this is possible. Install “Monitor Me” that I have posted on this blog. Once configured for ACAP monitor it will produce events when an ACAP add-on is installed, removed, started or stopped. You can use this event to configure an event/action rule that e.g. sends an email.


  3. At some point will a package me made to support Ambarella S2L processor cameras like the M304x and M310x series?


    1. Have you tried installing the ARM-version in the requested product support? I have not trested myself. There is a good chance it may work. On failure, check log as it may not be the HW platform that causes problem. It may also be a FW incompatibility.
