Local storage

Local storage

my area is seeing bandwidth issues, with everyone staying at home.. I want a local DVR that uploads to ring after it does it work, setup with modes, or different cams upload in different ways. also the ring app needs to be able to view from the dvr, before going to ring servers.


I want to be able to buy a local storage device.  The device cache my video when my internet is down or my internet is slow. The device would also cache 1tb of videos so my app could play them with speed when there is bandwidth issues. The device would still upload to ring, just in a different way. For example, my out door cams could upload to both right away, but my indoor cams only upload to ring depending on my alarm mode or time of day. Eventually all data would still be uploaded.

How will this help the consumer:

  It will make ring work faster at homes and businesses.

  No more latency issues causing sound and video issues.

  No downtime due to internet outages.

  Less impact on bandwidth when motion is detected or when reviewing the last 1tb of videos.

 

How will this help ring:

  A device to sale creates revenue.

  Using locally stored video, has less backhual/work for ring servers.

  Less client downtime, when ring has outages, means more client satisfaction.

  Possible throttling bandwidth if setup with modes or only sending motion to ring.

  Coding could also happen locally, creating less of an impact on ring servers.

I have the same issue

Please consider supporting RSTP streamming on both the DoorBell and Security Cameras.  This protocol is widely used by most security cameras and would allow users to do personal integrations with other devices and products within their home.

To be clear this will not be solo local storage, ring server would still be used. Also you could maybe charge a small monthly fee for it. Kinda like a feature on demand or a subscription to keep it working.

Ring could create the device to do this and customers could supply the local storage. less cost for ring and ring doesn't become a hard drive dealer and warranty provider for failing hard drives, also the customer could store as much video as he or she wanted and only have the last 30 days upload to Ring servers.

 

This DVR device should also have a port to add a hdmi monitor to display all cameras at once also, would also need a hard wire Ethernet port.

I want to put a monitor in my office that shows the video output from cameras around the house. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be possible with Ring's products. This would be far easier if one could consume an RTSP (or equivalent) video directly from the cameras.

Please revise the software to be used to protect our families during emergencies when internet is down.

Thanks

Dear Ring,

 

Please consider RTSP functionality on your cameras thus enabling them for other surveillance software like e.g. SecuritySpy where I can't add them now. You could start making this available to customers with full service plans.

 

Thanks.

Please consider adding onvif support so we can access our camera on our NVR.  I don't want to put up another camera for the system when there's already one there.

I would love this feature.  Plus for privacy I don’t want my personal images on your servers and you don’t really want to store them either.... win/win.  No creepers looking at my videos on your servers....

Many other companies already have such a feature. Ring, you are behind the times. Please! This is a vital, and necessary feature. I have a total of 10 cameras (including Ring doorbells) inside and outside my property. Although I have Ring Cameras, I never got rid of my old systems cameras because its connected to a dvr. But that system is becoming too old. I don't want to buy cameras for another system just to have a local dvr.
