Videos use different amounts of storage space and consume different bandwidth based on each camera's video resolution settings, the number of frames-per-second recorded and the video encoding bitrate. 

With Niro, cameras upload to the cloud only the keyframes that include a person detected, to minimize the stress on your internet connection's bandwidth. This is possible because our person detection algorithms are installed on the Niro hub, so we can efficiently backup only those important moments, while keeping your 24/7 recording locally.

Every time you playback recorded footage while on your network, the video is coming directly from the hub, so there are no bandwidth considerations. 

To give you an idea, we've estimated the following ballpark figures, but we highly recommend you check your camera settings for specific information.

A 5 minute video recorded at 720p resolution at 25fps and 1Mbps bitrate results in a file of approximately 37MB. That same collection of settings require a maximum upload bandwidth of 2.5 Mbps.
