Online Media are pictures and videos that are readily available to be viewed, downloaded, and queried. Online Media storage is cyclic. Older media is removed to make room for new. Online storage costs $1.00 per GB per month.
Days Archive Retention
The Days Archive Retention is the number of days tha the arhives will be kept. Once an archive expires it is deleted. The total amount of archive space is calculated as the Daily Average Archive Limit multiplied by the Days Archive Retention. Archive storage costs $0.01 per GB per month (minimum 90 days).
Daily Average Archive Limit
The Daily Average Archive Limit is the threshold where the system will stop archiving for the rest of the day. The Daily Average Archive Amount is calculated by averaging the GB usage for all the days that are in the archive set. This algorithm allows for motion activated cameras that have very active and very quiet days.
Archived media needs to be retrieved before it can be viewed. Retrieval of all archived media for a given day takes about 30 minutes and requires the redemption of an Archive Retrieval Token. Retrieved media remains in Online Media for 1 week. Archive Retrieval Tokens can be purchased from within the account.
