Which storage option is better—local or cloud?

Nov 29,2022 | LongPlus

The majority of security cameras today offer cloud storage to deter burglars from simply stealing the evidence and fleeing, however some people still want local storage due to its discretion and practicality.

Depending on the camera, local storage options may include the following:

microSD cards

USB drives

Digital Video Recorders (DVRs)

Network Video Recorders (NVRs)


If you choose local storage, you must locate your security cameras safely away from potential threats while yet being easily accessible. However, if you purchase cloud storage, you can access film regardless of the state of the camera by viewing it through mobile or laptop programs.
