Storing high-resolution video footage can quickly consume disk space, especially with continuous recording. Lets calculate the storage needed for continuous recording of a 1080p camera at 30 frames per second (fps) for one year. Assuming a bitrate of about 5 Mbps for a 1080p video, the space required can be determined. The following calculation will give us the required storage for different fps values:
Modern surveillance software, such as SmartVision , offers intelligent motion and object detection. Traditional systems mostly detect pixel changes, which can lead to false alerts due to lighting variations, the changing numbers on an elevator panel, and other non-significant movements. By focusing on specific object movements, such as a human or an animal, false alarms are reduced.
