What is a tag?

Tags are used to classify and mark events and link them to other devices like security cameras. This is a useful feature that applies semantic meaning to inbound notifications.

As alerts come in via email, SNMP or Bridge, the contents will be parsed to see if predefined tags are present. For example, a tag for “motion” in the subject should be tagged as “motion.”

Tags can be linked to any device, thus marking events in time. Keeping track of events in relation to linked CCTV cameras makes it possible to quickly identify areas of interest in the player timeline.
