How does our CCTV to cloud backup work?

1. Nas Based CCTV Storage

You CCTV surveillance is recorded onto a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device. A NAS device is a storage device connected to a network that lets authorized users access storage and retrieval of data from a central location. NAS devices offer flexibility and can scale out, meaning that as you need additional storage, you can add to what you have. NAS is similar to a private cloud in the office. It’s extremely fast, cheaper and provides all the benefits of a public cloud on site, giving you complete control.

The NAS device has a backup management software that then transfers the recorded footage from the NAS device to the cloud server. This is done automatically without any human intervention. Once we set up the system on your premises, you don’t have to do anything else. All that is needed is a stable internet connection.

NAS offers immense benefits for your cloud backup system.

  • They are easy to operate without having a dedicated IT professional
  • Lower cost
  • Easy data backup. Its automated by the backup software, so it’s always accessible when you need it
  • Your surveillance data is centralized no matter how complex or big the CCTV system is.

2. Cloud Adapter based CCTV Backup

This is by far the best option for cloud backup. In this method, we use a cloud adapter connected to the NVR or DVR. This means our system supports both analog and IP cameras. The cloud adapter is the device that sends the CCTV footage in the DVR or NVR to the cloud.


  • Depending on the number of cameras we choose the most suitable cloud adapter device. Cloud adapter devices are available in 8, 16 and 80 channels. The cameras and the DVR or NVR must be a compatible brand e.g Hikvision, Dahua and other common brands.
  • Connection and setup depends on the number of cameras.
  • After making sure the setup is properly done. We will then setup your cloud account from where you will be viewing the footage whenever you need.
  • Client confirms the system is working as required.
