Good Morning Guys,
I need to start / stop video recording and save on local SD CARD on my Cube Cam (DS-2CD2442FWD) using API.
I have read the manual but seems that the command to register are based only on event (Smart, Line ecc).

Any suggestion?

Regards

Thanks a lot for the feedback.
This only works on NVR/DVR devices unfortunately.... :(

I made a typo in the request with 'track' it should be 'tracks'.
The following works with my camera (DS-2CD2025FWD-I). The camera is not connected to a NVR/DVR and records only to the SD card. Can't say this will work for the DS-2CD2442FWD.

The following request stops or starts manual recording only. This may interfere with your continuous recording and schedules.

To stop a manual recording:
PUT http://admin:yourPassword@192.168.1.64/ISAPI/ContentMgmt/record/control/manual/stop/tracks/101

To start a manual recording:
PUT http://admin:yourPassword@192.168.1.64/ISAPI/ContentMgmt/record/control/manual/start/tracks/101

You can see in the playback timeline the effect:

The files are also available to download:

It's also possible to start/stop continuous recordings but requires a lot of settings in the body.
Keep me posted on your progress.
