Basically, there are 2 types of recording schedule modes for Reolink cameras. Refer to the below-detailed information about these 2 different recording modes.

Applies to: All Reolink NVRs and cameras except battery-powered cameras 

Timer Recording

It means that the device will constantly record for any period when Timer is selected. You won’t miss anything, but the constant recording will fill your SD card or hard drive very quickly. Typically, we suggest Alarm as a better recording mode for most users.

Alarm Recording

The device will only record when it detects something moving in front of a camera. Before setting any of your schedules to Motion, ensure that the Alarm Settings are properly configured for the related cameras.
