Question about alert videos: cloud vs microsd

So, if I understand this correctly, the alert videos get sent to the cloud, and and can optionally be stored on the microsd card, right? Can the app play videos from either storage location?

Yes it can.

And how can you see the distinction between the cloud video and the SD card video? How do you know which one you’re watching?

The notification tab on the first screen contains the cloud events.

You must go into the individual camera and use the playback tab to see the sdcard video.
