They typically rely on a DVR or NVR as their primary means of storage. These recording devices are generally equipped with surveillance grade hard drives that store at least 1TB of data. In larger applications, hard drives with larger storage capacity are often necessary.\nThere are a couple problems here. First, surveillance grade hard drives are not cheap. The more terabytes of storage you add to a recording device, the higher the cost. Also, this leaves local storage devices vulnerable to physical damage and theft.\nThe same follows for our WiFi cameras. They are all equipped with microSD slots that can accommodate up to 128GB of onboard storage. This is a great means of physical backup. And for some people, it may be sufficient for primary storage. But generally, the cloud option provides so much more.\nFirst of all, you have expanded storage that’ll eliminate the need for upkeep. With microSD storage, you will have to consider what to do when you run out of storage space. You either have to delete some data or get a new replacement microSD card. \nCloud storage service totally takes care of this. Managing your data and having the capacity to store as much footage as you need.\nPlus, it is the best way to guarantee the safety of your footage. Only you have secure access to your data with our cloud service.\nThe cloud features bank-grade encryption for all data transmission, keeping it safer than any other storage device.\n \n4 Tiered Options - Cloud Storage is for Everyone\nWe offer 4 affordable options to accommodate everyone’s cloud storage needs.\nCheck out our 4 tiers of cloud subscription plans that range from $8.99\/month to $19.99\/month that data storage options 14 or 30 days of recording at a time and 3-5 devices (depending on the plan you choose). \nWithin our app, we feature special deals for cloud storage.
