the CamPlus is great, but how many people here use a cam with the SD Card & Also a Cloud upload, i’m guessing Most.
To have a Local Storage such as NAS means you can save all of the footage & be able to access it anytime, even a couple months later.
It does not Replace the cloud storage, at least not for anyone who uses cams for actual security.
If someone breaks in to your house & does not cut the internet, the cloud has the footage, even if they find your NAS & take that too…
It’s a Redundancy thing, and when there’s a problem with the cloud servers, like there was a few days ago, that means that nothing is stored, so at least you can fall back to the NAS storage even if someone swipes the cameras during the burglary.
