The Difference Between Cloud Storage and Analog Systems
When people think of security camera storage, an analog system often comes to mind. These systems usually store security camera footage onsite and require a direct connection to the storage mechanism. Analog systems are also typically onsite, so you need onsite storage space.
Cloud storage allows video surveillance to be on an off-site server or device. As a security camera captures video, that video is sent to the cloud, which stores it. You can access that footage remotely and store as much of it as needed using an internet connection.
Benefits of Cloud Storage for Security Cameras
Access Security Footage Wherever You Are
Cloud storage comes with end-to-end security, which allows you to keep your security footage private and safe. Encryption can also help prevent loss of footage as it transfers from a security camera to the cloud. Since data is kept offsite, it reduces the risk of videos being stolen.
Store Footage as Long as You Want
Cloud storage allows you to hang on to your footage for as long as you want to keep it. You can adjust bandwidth or purchase additional space on the cloud to make room for additional files rather than delete previous security tapes. There is no physical space in a security office that you may run out of.
