Managed Data Backup and Unlimited Surveillance Video Storage
If you are still storing business documents and security video backup on your computer’s hard drive, you could be putting yourself at major risk. It has become increasingly easier for hackers to bypass passwords and breach virtually any desktop system. Not only is your drive not safe, but data transfer security may be vulnerable to capture enroute. The best and most affordable solution is professional security camera cloud storage from a reputable firm such as CCTV Services.
As the use of closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance grows, so does demand for longer retention periods. This means a continual increase in requirements for surveillance footage storage.
Many security systems provide only a few hours of video. At best, most conventional storage backup systems will keep video for up to 120 days before overwriting it. For liability cases for example, the statute of limitations to file a claim is much longer than 120 days. Many business owners have lost legal battles through the loss of the security camera video evidence that would have exonerated them..

Why Should You Go for Cloud Storage?
Cloud storage should be the go-to solution in the following situations that demand additional storage:
1. If you want to backup your footage for security and easier access to retrieve when needed
2. If you have more than TWO cameras on site
2. If your security system is set up on different local area networks (LANs) or at multiple sites
What are the Benefits of CCTV Cloud Storage?
Data security is guaranteed if your hardware is stolen or damaged because your files are not stored locally. These are stored safely in our datacenters, away from any itchy fingers.
When your CCTV storage requirements change, you can easily alter your existing storage plan by decreasing or increasing your storage and bandwidth as desired.
* Cost Effective
With the elimination of need to purchase additional storage hardware, storing and managing your surveillance files becomes cost effective.
* Sensitive File Backup
Most companies prefer saving their security footage for longer periods, especially in cases where files contain potential evidence. Cloud storage makes it easier to store these files with larger storage capacity.
* Remote Access
Cloud storage provides you with easy remote access to your files. You can access your CCTV footage real time or at a later time using your device of choice.
How Does the CCTV Cloud Storage Solution Work?
IP cameras and video surveillance systems have DVRs and NVRs that are designed to work with cloud storage. These function like ordinary cameras but the information picked by the camera is converted into data that is transferred over the Internet, hence the name IP (Internet Protocol).
This signal is sent to your broadband router where the audio and video information picked by the camera is uploaded over the Internet to our secure servers. Once your files are uploaded to the servers, all you need is Internet access and a laptop, PC or smartphone to access your files.
Considerations to Make for CCTV Storage
To enjoy the perks of CCTV storage and management solutions, consider having a video management system (VMS) in place. A VMS like Milestonesys can be part of the software component of a NVR, even though it can be more sophisticates to provide more capabilities than a packaged NVR.
Depending on what you need, a VMS can provide additional capabilities as follows:
* Motion Detection
Instead of recording data continuously, a VMS can implement motion detection to ensure that only footage with movement is stored, thus minimising the amount of data to be stored.
Audio can be recorded from network cameras using a VMS, and in some cases, two-way audio capabilities can be provided through network cameras acting as intercoms.
* Unified Management Interface
A VMS can provide a single management interface allowing you to access camera sources from different serve devices, which makes your security footage appear unified and not isolated on many independent sources.
* Monitored Alarm Input / Output
Your alarm inputs can be monitored by a VMS, which then acts upon them. The VMS can send alert messages via cellphones, email or to a client’s mobile phone application.
