How Long Can I Store Video For? (Camera/Video Retention)

You can check your video retention on This is where you will find how long you can access HD and SD video before it expires:

Where Can I Find My Local Downloads?

Video clips that you save locally are sent to the Downloads folder on your computer (unless you've changed your default download location in your browser).

Look for your most recent files in the Downloads folder on your computer to locate any recently saved clips from Solink.

For information on how to save a clip to your computer/device, see Download Video Clips.

Why Did My Transaction Information Disappear in the Video Player?

Sometimes after you click on an event and open it in the video player, the transaction is briefly shown and then disappears.

In the following images, the transaction on the right appears and then disappears very quickly:


This can occur in the following scenarios:

  • When a transaction ends, the transaction overlay in the video player disappears immediately. This means a short transaction may appear and disappear very quickly.

  • The transaction does not have two time stamps (only one).

  • If multiple transactions occur at the same time, it can cause each of these transactions to display very briefly.

Please reach out to our Support team if this is a persistent issue and/or you have further questions.
