Do You Need Cloud Storage? or Local Storage?
Most cameras won’t save the video footage directly onto the device itself. This is where cloud storage or local storage comes in. Depending on the brand and model of security camera, the information collected will be stored for different lengths of time in different locations. Some models have an SD card and others involve a subscription fee for cloud storage.
What Is Face Detection?
Some of the best home camera security systems have the ability to zoom in on a face and send you an alert to your smartphone. If you identify this image as a person that is safe, the device will recognise them next time. Similarly it will alert you when there is someone who is not recognised.
What Is Motion Detection?
When your security camera detects any motion in its field of view, you will be alerted and you can engage the camera to see what it is. This allows you to either send through an alarm or if your model has the capability, engage a microphone and speak with the person. On a lot of cameras you can set an area that you need the motion to be detected in and block out things like cars or passers by outside of your yard area.
