Hi, 1. Some questions...
How many cameras at what bit rate?
What's the available bandwidth of your upstream connection?
What are the retrieval requirements? (Live view thru cloud, playback, or just raw storage, intermittent use or continual).
Since it's only 2 days storage required, have you considered edge recording in the cameras?
There are cloud services out there that connect to cameras 'generically' so long as you open up holes in firewalls to let the video 'out', etc. (not recommending this but technically it is possible). Angelcam and Camiolog are two that support this.
I want to do something like you
- I'm testing FLIR that buffer video on SDCard then send footage to AWS. I'm waiting for feedback from their developer team because i'm too limitated
- I'm thinking at using a Hikvision sending video to a NAS locally then coding something to upload some footage to AWS
Why AWS ? it's the choice of FLIR and S3 is well know to handle files securely
Why not Anglecam ? Because I don't want to open my Firewall, and because I don't want to kill my bandwidth streaming 24/7
My 2 cents ... I think Google Hub may be a proxy for NestCam because people complains about bandwidth used by the camera.
