Hi,

I'm wondering if there is a way to create a real-time backup solution that can backup files from a basic NAS onto the cloud. I have a security camera system that can write the files to a base unit or a NAS but I'd like to see if I there is a way I can store these onto the cloud using the NAS and not requiring a PC connected to run any software.

My Asustor backs up to both Google drive and Amazon Photos, so definitely doable.

I don't have a NAS just yet, but looking to get something very cheap for this purpose. I need it to put security camera videos onto the cloud for me in real-time

You can do this with Synology, but you will need to compress significantly the videos unless you have a decent up-speed available. Each of my security cameras (Reolink) is writing approx 60Gb a day!! (MP4 files)

Wouldn't you be better just enabling remote access into the NAS so you can view from anywhere

That's a lot of data! The cameras I'm looking at are the EUFY brand and typical reviews indicate that 16GB is enough to store 30days of data.

I would like to backup to the cloud in case the NAS gets stolen during a break in. Id rather spend the money on a NAS then to be held hostage by a subscription based service like Ring.

I'd rather have a decent image that I can freeze and actually see identifiable things!

My cameras are these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Reolink-Me...nk+2+pack&qid=1588000743&s=electronics&sr=1-9

16Gb for 30 days suggests either low resolution or massive compression. Thats all very well but may prove next to useless if nothing can be actually identified from the image!!

I accept that there is a risk if the NAS goes missing, but I think its more likely laptops/tablets/jewelry will go and not a lot else, but ultimately thats what we pay insurance for!!!
