The Date/Time column indicates the date and time at which the activity took place.
The User/Event column indicates either the name of the user related to the event (for example, the user who presented a credential at the door specified), or the event itself if there is no identifiable user involved, (for example, Failed Access: Unknown Credential). Click the user name to access the User detail page.
To view only those events related to a single user, click on the user name in the User/Event column of the Activity Log. The User Details page will display. Under the More Operations dropdown list, click on the View User Activity link and the page refreshes, displaying only those events related to the specified person.

To view a subset of the log based on site, click on the dropdown list under the Site filter and select your site. The page refreshes displaying only those events related to the specific site. To clear this filter, click Reset Filters at the top left of the page.
The Door/Device column identifies the door, device, or camera affected by the event. To view details related to a specific door, device, or camera, click the door, device, or camera name. The associated detail page displays.
To view a subset of the log based on door/device, click on the dropdown list under the Door/Device filter and select your door/device. The page refreshes displaying only those events related to the specific door/device. To clear this filter, click Reset Filters at the top left of the page.
The Video column provides a link to video related to a specific device if there is either a Digital Video Recorder or Brivo Onair Video Recorder set up for the account. If there is a user photo associated with a user access or failed access event, the user photo will be displayed along with the video feed associated with that event.
The Unlock Door field allows a user to unlock doors set to be controlled from the browser. Simply click on the button and a popup window will appear with all the available devices. Click on the device you wish to unlock and you are returned to the main activity log page with the Unlock Door field filled in with the selected device. Click on the icon to unlock the selected door. A popup window shows the action taken as well as the event appearing in the activity log.
The User Image box automatically displays a user image (if there is one associated with the credential) when that credential is used (so long as Streaming Events is in an Active state). It also allows an administrator to view a stored user image from the user profile after clicking NEXT TO the user name in the User/Event column of the Activity Log. If there is no user image attached to the user name, the user image box will remain blank.
The Video Playback box allows an administrator to view a video event from an Brivo Onair Video camera by clicking on the Video icon in the Video column of the Activity Log. This feature only works for Brivo Onair Video cameras. Video linked to DVR cameras, accessed by clicking on the DVR icon, will not appear in the Video Playback box, but will appear in a popup window. An administrator download the current clip by clicking on the icon and a popup window will appear allowing you to save the clip as a file. They may also view the clips before and after the current clip by clicking on the and buttons, and clicking on the Search Video icon will take you to the Search tab of the Video page.
User, site, door and device names appear in the Activity Log as they were at the time of the event.
