Hi,

 

I want to install an outside camera. At night there is some street light.

 

Does anyone know how long verizon stores the camera's video on their servers? Is the storage cost part of the $10 per month?

 

Also for outside, how is the nightime situation with the cameras. Is it better to do snapshot or streaming?

 

Thanks!

It's my understanding that the videos are stored on the Gateway device and not at Verizon.

 

The outdoor cameras have their own light source night time operations.

 

Here are examples of one of my outdoor cameras in day & night modes as viewed on my iPhone. The camera is mounted on my shed which is about 40 to 50 feet from the left corner of the house. Snapshot or streaming is about the same.

One correction. The videos are stored at Verizon and NOT on the Gateway.
