How many GB do I need for CCTV?
60 GB is likely the most common storage consumption in today’s video surveillance systems. Unlike 6GB, it’s large enough to record quality video for some period of time but it is not too expensive. For instance, 16 cameras consuming 60GB storage each is 1 TB – which is the sweet spot of today’s hard drives.

Where is CCTV footage stored?
For full video surveillance systems, recorded footage is stored on an external recorder. In IP systems, these are called NVRs, or network video recorders. In analog systems, they’re called DVRs, or digital video recorders.
How many GB is 24 hours of video?
Some quick math and 24 hours of 4K 60FPS takes 34,560 GB.
How many data does a CCTV camera consume per day?
Some security cameras can consume as little as 5 Kbps in “steady-state”, and others as high as 6 Mbps and beyond. The average bandwidth consumption of an IP cloud camera is 1-2 Mbps (assuming 1080p using H. 264 codec at 6-10fps). A hybrid cloud camera averages a fraction of that, ranging 5-50 Kbps in steady-state.
Is 500GB enough for CCTV?
Just like a computer, most CCTV DVRs are fitted with Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) to which they record your security footage. Our recorders all ship with at least a 500GB HDD, but for many scenarios this will simply not be enough, and it pays to expand this storage using our simple upgrade menus.
