will register the alarm, but it will not be found during an
alarm scan and alarm search.
œ If there is a power failure during alarm recording, and
the power is restored within the recording set duration,
alarm recording will continue.
œ If the alarm recording duration is short, the alarms may
not be found during an alarm scan or an alarm search.
If the alarms are going to be reviewed using alarm
scan or alarm search, then in 8-hour mode, 20-second
or more recording duration should be used.
œ To do alarm recording during series recording, set
“ALARM MODE” to “Y1” or “Y3”. Alarm recording will
be conducted only if the VCR is recording.
