American consumers have major concerns with the security of cloud services, according to two new Google Consumer surveys IPVM has run.

In this note, we examine consumer responses of home networks vs the cloud and the risks involved.

Great article. We recently started offering a local video storage solution, with cloud recording only while a homeowner's alarm system is in alarm. This way most of their data is stored locally at home. When their alarm system goes into alarm, the data is stored both locally and sent to the cloud for remote access. Cloud storage during alarm activity helps to reduce the risk of losing all data if the recorder is stolen.

In the past year, we have had a lot more homeowner's approach us about cloud backup. People seem to be coming around to it.

I can tell you this; the solution I described above makes installing cameras significantly faster and more affordable for our small business and residential customers.
