    The Bit Rate is a little tricky. Setting it too high will use too much upload bandwidth, causing failed uploads; setting it too low will affect the video quality. You can use our bandwidth calculator to estimate the bandwidth. Visit www.cameraftp.com, click Pricing, and then customize a service plan.

    Motion detection is strongly recommended as it can lower your cost and dramatically reduce bandwidth/storage usage. Moreover, motion detection makes it easier to play back the recorded footage. NOTE: This camera does not fully support continuous recording. It can only record a 1-minute video clip every 2 minutes, or 10 images per minute.
