 Event storage: If there is movement detected on your camera screen, or you use a certain type of camera which will be automatically or manually triggered under specific conditions, the videos recorded by your camera will be uploaded. For each event, the video clip will be no longer than 30 seconds. The event could only be triggered once every 90 seconds.

    Storage capacity: you can choose 7 days or 30 days storage period, which means that the camera video uploaded to the cloud can be replayed within 7 days or 30 days. From the 8th or the 31st day, newly recorded videos will begin to cover the first day’s video.

Service period: You can purchase the service on a monthly, semi-annual or annual basis.

3)Choose the payment method and submit the order. After the order is successfully paid, please make sure to follow the section 7.3.1 to complete the cloud storage configuration. The cloud service supports multiple purchases, if currently there is a valid service package, a new purchased service package will be in the waiting list according to the effective time. If you want to use the new purchased service package ahead of time, please tap on the “activate” button to replace the current service package. Please “activate” your package very carefully as it will make the current service expired.

    I previously purchased a camera and purchased cloud storage for that camera.

    Am adding two additional cameras. Do I need to purchase cloud storage separately for each of the new cameras? Or can they be added to the cloud storage I purchased previously for my original camera?
