- Running securitylite as a screen saver: select '
Desktop / Customize / Screen Saver' from the Toolchest (or run the ssaver application). Then select
SecurityLitefrom the list of screen savers.
When used as a screen saver, the same instance of
securitylitegenerally runs as long as you are logged in. This can lead to large video files. You may want to periodically view and delete the file, and restart
securitylite. You can do this by running the securityreset shell script.
