Security Cameras with SD Card

Our digital IP cameras enable internal microSD video recording, offering remote playback and viewing via a network, with motion-triggered recording. These cameras also feature video analytics for AI-driven event detection, outperforming pixel-based motion detection. Cameras with these analytics come with intelligent rules, allowing longer SD card recording by reducing false motion events.


Do security cameras have SD cards?

Security cameras often support microSD-sized cards, either built-in or external. Refer to the product details for specific information on card compatibility.

How long does a 128GB SD card last in a security camera?

Higher-resolution videos consume more storage space. A 128 GB microSD card can store up to 256 hours (11 days) of 3MP resolution footage or 384 hours (16 days) of 1080P resolution footage. If your home camera records locally on an SD card or utilizes cloud storage with limited space, consider the storage capacity to avoid running out of space. Zosi offer unlimited cloud storage, eliminating this concern.

What size SD card is best for security camera?

Can I use CCTV without SD card?

Well, it's certainly possible to rely on cloud storage alone, and most smart home cameras will operate happily without an SD card installed, but there are a few reasons you should consider recording locally.
