There are several options available for storing surveillance camera footage. One option is to use a DVR or NVR, which has a built-in hard drive for storage. Another option is to use a cloud-based storage service, which allows you to access your footage from anywhere with an internet connection. Many cameras also have a microSD card slot, which can be used for local storage. A Wi-fi camera can remotely stream footage to an external device such as a phone or PC, where you can set up recording software to capture video feeds.
The amount of storage you need will depend on several factors, including the number of cameras you have, the resolution of the cameras, and how long you want to store the footage. You can calculate how much time your camera can record with our Video Storage Calculator.
It’s important to note that some surveillance cameras come with built-in storage, while others require you to purchase a separate storage device. When choosing a storage option, be sure to consider the cost, reliability, and accessibility of the storage method, as well as any additional features that may be available, such as remote access and backup options.
