How To Connect IP Cameras To the Cloud and How to Make Use of Cloud Storage?November 10, 2023
Image backup applications are included with some IP cameras. These applications are generally developed by the company that produces the cameras.
That being said, despite developing these apps, companies producing IP cameras have always encountered problems. In general, these companies demand excessively high prices for backup systems. Their goal is to keep people away from this service rather than providing it.
Thousands of companies throughout the world offer various cloud services. Some companies are making significant investments in data storage technologies. For this reason, companies producing cameras prefer not to make such investments. Also, many companies that produce cameras provide backup services under the name of cloud service. For example, backup images (video fragments) of your camera are transferred to servers at a certain time or day. This, however, is not a cloud service. It can be a cloud service only if these images are simultaneously transferred to both your recorder and the cloud.
You should be instantly able to access and process images recorded on the cloud.
How to Connect Ip Cameras to the Cloud?
This has to be among the trickiest questions, we believe. 🙂
Ip cameras and NVR devices have RTSP and RTMP protocols. Each Ip camera has different protocol links.
NVR: rtsp:// [USER] : [PASS] @ [ADDRESS] : [RTSP PORT] /unicast/c [CH] /s[STREAM TYPE]/live
IP Kamera: rtsp:// [USER] : [PASS] @ [ADDRESS] : [RTSP PORT] /media/video[STREAM TYPE]
Finding the RTSP link will be easier if your device is ONVIF compatible. You need to download the ONVIF software and locate your cameras to the link. You need to download the ONVIF software and ensure that your cameras are accessible in order to accomplish this. If you are looking for detailed information about ONVIF, you may find it under the SUPPORT section. In addition, in order to use these protocols, you need to route the 554-port used by the RTSP link through the modem or firewall (NAT the 554 port to the IP address of the camera).
Here, we would like to introduce you to our product that will make you forget all these settings. With GALATA Cloud Bridge, you no longer need to know any of the settings we mentioned above. Just connect the device to the network where the cameras are located. Then, you can access the cameras only by opening our app. In the diagram below, we tried to explain how it works.
