The Storage and Bandwidth Calculator provides general estimates of consumption for budgeting purposes based on average conditions.
Actual consumption can vary dramatically depending on the application and compression used. For the best results we strongly recommend
capturing test video clips at the desired location and using actual results prior to deploying a system.
Frames-per-Second (fps)

Number of images per second which the camera will send. Each resolution has a maximum fps see chart below for reference

Camera MAX FPS
HD480p 30
HD720p 30
HD1080p 30
3 MP 20
5 MP 10
Hours/Day Recording

Amount of hours per day that the camera will be recording.

Example: If camera is set to record only off hours from 6pm to 6am, recording time would be 12 hours

Motion %

The amount of motion consistently in the field of view.

Examples of factors affecting motion could include highway traffic, people walking in hallways
