Free Backup Your IP Security Cameras to Google Drive

Users typically record video and audio from an IP camera to a local hard drive (DVR / NVR). But what if the DVR / NVR hardware fails? Or perhaps a fire? Or worse, as part of a burglary, the DVR / NVR is stolen along with other valuables?

With Cloud recording solution, you may overcome the common risks of saving footage only to a local DVR / NVR. CloudBox247 provides highly secure and easy to use Cloud recording and storage per your retention needs (3 days to 2 years). You can also conveniently work with the recorded video at any time from any place.

That is very simple. Just buy any IP camera/NVR that supports FTP.
Then sign up https://www.cloudbox247.com and you will get free 15GB FTP account with lifetime storage.
Now go to your account at cloudbox247 and authorize to your google drive account.
Go to camera/NVR settings, put your ftp account there. Select upload trigger (for example: Motion detection) for recording.
Now all videos/images will be uploaded to google drive for free (15GB) or any storage you can buy from Google Drive.
Note: You can delete files at cloudbox247 when it is full or upgrade to higher storage plan. It’s really cheap with only 6.99$/1TB/month (unlimited bandwidth)

Cant get this to work either. I need port as well. All connection time out.

No PORT. Nothing to do.

I have a premium account. The back up process generates multiple folders (duplicated and more) and the photos are in disorder. How can I get only one folder for each camera?

regblank   January 8, 2019

It is working for me. I had to open the FTP port on my router to allow the camera to send the files. I can configure my camera to place the photos in a specific directory on cloudbox. The only problem I'm having is that the backup to Google Drive seems to be sporatic. Only about 4 files per 25 get synced automatically to Google Drive.

I'm having the same problem as regblank. Syncing is delayed and incomplete.

Where is camera / nvr settings?

As to "Now go to your account at cloudbox247 and authorize to your google drive account...." (quoted from above): if you do this, Google warns you before you complete the process, that
"This will allow Cloud Box 247 Backup to See, edit, create, and delete all of your Google Drive files".
Why would *anyone* do this, if they were paying attention to the warning?
I'd give you access ONLY to my *designated* ftp-transfer folder - and even that's asking too much, in my view, but maybe if it's free, I don't care. Do that, and I will come back and set it up, but in the meantime? HELL no, I'm not giving strangers in the cloud the keys to my life!

Not able to get my ftp password

cb247   August 20, 2021

ftp password is your password. For security, it doesn't show as default.
