Why add capacity?

Choose to upgrade your storage from 1TB to 2, 4 or 10 when you desire longer archive times.  Archive total time is dependent on many complicated factors but as a guide note the following scenario examples:

  • 1TB storage with 4x 2MP cameras in operation
  • Cameras are using H.264 codec in medium quality compression mode
  • Cameras record on motion detection 9 hours per day on average
  • Cameras are set to record at 12 frames per second
    • 1TB total capacity will store 3.3 weeks footage
    • 4TB becomes 13.2 weeks storage
  • 1TB storage with 4x 2MP cameras in operation
  • Cameras are using H.264 codec in high quality compression mode
  • Cameras record on motion detection 9 hours per day on average
  • Cameras are set to record at 25 frames per second
    • 1TB total capacity will store 5.6 days footage
    • 4TB becomes 3.2 weeks storage
  • 1TB storage with 4x 2MP cameras in operation
  • Cameras are using H.264 codec in medium quality compression mode
  • Cameras record 24 hours per day
  • Cameras are set to record at 25 frames per second
    • 1TB total capacity will store 2.1 days footage
    • 4TB becomes 1.2 weeks storage
  • 1TB storage with 4x 2MP cameras in operation
  • Cameras are using H.265 codec in medium quality compression mode
  • Cameras record 24 hours per day
  • Cameras are set to record at 12 frames per second
    • 1TB total capacity will store 4.2 days footage
    • 4TB becomes 2.4 weeks storage

Increasing your camera count will reduce the above record archival times and increasing your storage size will increase your archival times.
