Cloud Storage

Cloud_storageA Key concept of the neighborhood Guard System is the cloud storage.  The ability to safely store the recordings away from houses hosting the cameras leads to a number of significant benefits:

  1. No loss of images in case of burglary
  2. No loss of images in case of fire/flood etc.
  3. No technical expertise needed by hosting family.
  4. No power consumption/noise at hosting family.
  5. Ability to access the images from ANYWHERE

In the spring of 2012 we investigated a number of large and cost-effective cloud service providers to find the best option. The fine print prevented us from using Go-Daddy, Host Gator and others, we settled on Dreamhost, which had the most fair and favorable conditions. Our long-term plans is to rent server capacity at Dreamhost and share it between our members for increased benefits. Until then please support neighborhood guard by buying your SHARED services directly from Dreamhost using this Coupon code: NEIGHBORHOOD which will give you $10 discount ! in addition to a nice donation from Dreamhost to Neighborhood Guard.
