Security Cam Video direct to Cloud?


#1

Is there anyway possible to have a security camera upload directly to cloud storage without using a local computer?

Some cameras have FTP support. So for example if oDrive provided FTP access to say, Amazon Cloud Drive, that might be a solution.

Known caveats:

  • One brand of camera supposedly has built in DropBox support, but reviews say the cam is very unreliable overall.

  • You could save to NAS or PC then sync but this has disadvantages. Extra point of failure, requires having the hardware, etc.

Hi @lee1,
odrive doesn’t offer something like an FTP gateway to other storage and requires a client, in some capacity, to perform the syncing. I can’t see a way to use odrive without some intermediate system that would perform the syncing or putting the odrive agent directly on the camera (probably not possible).
