How it works The Ava Cloud Video Security architecture
Frequently asked questions, answered
What happens if someone steals or destroys my security cameras or damages my server disks?
Ava Cloud Storage ensures full storage and resilience of your footage in case of a disaster. The cloud storage mirrors your local storage on Ava Cameras or Ava Cloud Connectors.
What are 30 days?
Data is stored from the camera to the cloud, and the recordings from the last 30 days are kept in the cloud, even if there is no space on the local device for these recordings. This means that if today is October 15th, you will have the video stored from September 15th onwards.
How can I get more cloud storage for my video security data?
You can purchase a one-year subscription for 30 days of additional Ava Cloud Storage, on top of the 30 free days that come with an Ava Aware license. If you want additional days, you can purchase and allocate multiple licenses to the same device. Example: If you purchase two licenses for the same device, it will have 90 days in total (30 days free, plus 2x30 purchased).
Single-channel devices require one license per device (per 30 days), whereas multi-channel devices require one license per channel (per 30 days).
What happens to my cloud storage if all my video footage is in 4K resolution?
You will still get 30 days of all the stored video. ***
***Fair use. Any system needs to have boundaries, and Ava Cloud Storage is no exception. For all our Ava cloud cameras, the fair use is beyond the maximum bitrate, so this will not be an issue. It may be possible for third-party cameras on Cloud Connectors to exceed the fair use limit when storing streams at very high bitrates. In these cases, the oldest data will be deleted before the 30 days window.
What are Saved clips?
Saved clips are preserved after your footage has reached the retention time. They can be stored in the cloud indefinitely if they are still saved on your Ava Cameras or Cloud Connectors.
