NetCamCenter 3 User Guide


Recording video to cloud




NetCamCenter can simutaneously record video to both local storage and to cloud services. Hence increases the chance you have the video footage when you need it comparing to record only local or only to cloud storage. The local stream are recorded in high quality (i.e. HD if you are using HD camera), while remote stream is adjusted for remote recording (required as most of the users today have very limited uplink bandwidth). You can also view live video and search recordings with your phone and tablet without configuring your router or firewall by using CamNebula service.

For remote recording, using CamNebula is highly recommended as it is designed for remote surveillance. Recording to CamNebula service is done by streaming, reliable and fast.

The commonly available cloud storages, on the other hand, are not specifically designed for remote video recording. The server end is a storage, not a streaming server. Hence, there are many limitations due to this nature. Recording are based on cloud drive syncing when you selection this option. Video are recorded in short clips, there's no control on how files are synced with the servers (e.g. there's no way to know a clip recorded 30 minutes ago is now on the server), and adds significant system loading. Search video is also difficult.

Nevertheless, both options are provided. (For CamNebula Free Edition, only CamNebula option is available.)

Note the more cameras, the more bandwidth you need to upload the videos. Also note the serial number on CamNebula web site is for CamNebula Editions only.
