Question 3. How secure are cloud based security systems?

Cloud based systems built from the ground up are, in general, more secure than the physical NVR and iOs/Android app architecture that most of the entry level systems use. Poor passwords, vulnerabilities in the cheap TCPIP chips built onto the recorder and software vulnerabilities in the apps have allowed a number of high profile breaches.

Cloud based solutions use IT security standards that far exceed the physical security equivalents to ensure maximum protection, resilience and smooth operation. Cloud adoption is rapidly increasing, both for access control systems and CCTV recording.
