Clips and Stills
5. When all the video you need is recorded, click again. A dialog is displayed:
Retrieval at [site name]: Save Recorded Clip to File.
6. As you would with any file, name the clip and choose a folder where the clip will
be stored. When you save the clip, it is stored as a *.rem file and the …Save…
dialog is closed.
7. You have the option of ending the session. See 3.4, on p. 3–8.
Honeywell recommends storing stills and clips in their own folder.
Clips and stills can be erased routinely after use, making it easy to erase other files by
mistake. Storing clips and stills in a folder other than View’s application folder (the
default folder for clips and stills) prevents the deletion of View system files.

7.1.4 Automatic Clip of Alarms

Automatic record for live alarm option in 6.1.1: Customizing Alarms, starting on p. 6–2.
