Many business clients will want to have surveillance cameras, and video footage should both be monitored for security purposes and stored in case it needs to be reviewed. What are the benefits of storing that security footage in the cloud?
- Secure – Of course, this requires that proper encryption is used and that password strength is strong. However, this is a far more secure way of storing data than on a DVR that can easily be destroyed or stolen.
- Cost-efficient – While the initial cost of a cloud setup can more expensive than a DVR system, having space on a local hard drive eventually becomes far more expensive than storing data in the cloud.
- Scalability – Again, going back to issues with local storage amounts, if a company doesn’t want to have to rewrite over footage every few days, using online storage is a far more reasonable solution.
- Easy Access – You can view stored footage from anywhere rather than having to be in the presence of the DVR physically. That means a business owner can monitor security footage from home (or a homeowner can check on his house from the beach, for that matter).

It’s nice to be able to check on one’s business from home or on vacations, but it is even better to know a trained professional can see what is going on if a fire alarm sounds or a motion sensor goes off when no one should be in the building.
