Hi, eufy fans,
It’s STORAGE time again.
In the last installment we looked into what storage options are available to you for your security products. We discussed how local storage is our top choice when it comes to security.
Today we are going to take a closer look at CLOUD STORAGE.
Cloud storage always seems to be a hot-button topic. We are always being asked questions like:
"Why should I pay for Cloud Storage?”, “Is it really safe?”, “What are the benefits of storing my data in the cloud?”
Fear not, we are here to walk you through all these questions, and more!
Before we get started, what are your initial feelings towards ”Cloud storage”?
- A. I like it!
- B. I am not familiar with it.
- C. It is not worth the trouble.
- D. I do not trust it!
- E. I have no opinion.
What is cloud storage?
Cloud storage allows you to store your data so it can be accessed “anytime, anywhere” from any device via the internet. It is a cloud computing model that stores data on the Internet through a cloud computing provider who manages and operates data storage as a service.
What are the benefits of using cloud storage?
No overwriting limit
It does not use up your built-in storage space
More options for personalization
No SD card is required
Can I trust cloud storage
The following measures are taken to ensure to maximize safety:
All footage and data is subject to military-grade encryption as it is uploaded to the cloud
All videos are stored on AWS cloud servers, which are recognized as being the most reliable cloud service provider in the world
Video can only be played through the eufy Security app, and each URL is only valid for 12 hours
Both the URL address and the video footage are encrypted and transmitted for download and sharing. After decryption via the eufy Security app, downloads are saved in the user’s mobile phone album in MP4 format before being processed.
Tips for new cloud storage users:
eufy Security Indoor Cam users can now get a one-time free trial with each account they set up. Get a feel for how cloud storage works and see if you think it is right for you with 30 days for free!
Here are some the details of the free trial:
Each video uploaded to the cloud will be kept for 14 days.
If at any point you voluntarily stop the subscription during the trial period, it will immediately become invalid and cannot be activated again.
If you are enjoying the trial experience, you can choose to subscribe to the paid service. After subscribing, the paid packages take effect immediately, and the trial packages expire. The storage period of newly uploaded videos depends on the package you subscribe to.
We hope this basic overview of Cloud Storage has been useful to you.
