Often times you just might want to search a particular area of video. For example, maybe a laptop was stolen from a desk and you want to see just when that laptop was stolen instead of tediously going through all the video. That's where Region Search can help.
To search an area of video, navigate to the camera where you want to perform the search. Pick the day you want to search from the date picker and then select "Region Search" in the lower right. (Note: region search will only search one day at a time)
When you click the Region Search button, the player will be overlaid with a grid. Simply drag over the squares to select the region you want to search.
If there were any results, they will show up both under the player in the seek bar as purple hash marks and as thumbnails below that. You can either click on purple events in the seek bar or on the thumbnails to skip between events.
At any point, you can exit the search by clicking "Exit Search" or search again by clicking "Search Different Region".
