Every 20 seconds, Verkada cameras upload high-resolution thumbnails to the Verkada cloud. These thumbnails are used for features which include timelapse and video search.  Once the maximum storage capacity for a device is reached, Command will automatically delete all thumbnails that are stored on the camera and in the cloud, beginning with the oldest files.
