In general, multiple people can view the same Skywatch camera without adding additional burden to your broadband connection.
Yes. We use 128-bit HTTPS TLS/SSL for all the communications between our server and your viewing clients. It is as safe as your online credit card transactions.
The connection between the cameras and the servers are established through 256-bit AES (Advaned Encryption Standard) encryption, and all the video files are digitally signed so that only certified users can access their own files.
Ultimately, our service is secure only if you use a safe password, and we do recommend changing your password regularly to protect your data.
These free services would not come with sufficient storage for continuous recording purposes. Nor do they provide sustainable upload bandwidth necessary for a proper recording application.
Skywatch cloud storage is designed to store your video files with minimal delay and maximum security, and its add-on features such as video analytics simply can not be achieved with regular online storage services.
