Internet quality is improving every year. Modern channels for data transfer make it possible to record a video signal directly to the Internet and save recordings on an external server - "in the cloud
". That is, you can do without a home video recorder
. But it should be remembered that data storage on the Internet will have to pay. In addition, if there is a problem with the Internet, recordings will not be saved. If there was a short-term shutdown of the Internet, the camera will be able to save data to a flash drive, and after the network is working, transfer it to the server. If the Internet has disappeared for a long time, there is a possibility that important data will simply be lost.
