1 frame per second is the lowest frame rate recordable and 30 frames
per second is the maximum which is real time.

There is no real need to record in real time unless there are
regulatory reasons as in case of government facilities or casinos.

Recording at 1 frame per second is what traditional analog systems
record At 3 - 5 frames per second recording you will not miss any
activity (remember this is per second).
