If you use a DVR or NVR, the basic plan will select the default as channel 1. The users can enjoy video backups of up to 2 days and up to 10 gigabytes on cloud storage. (1)

The basic plan also comes with three rapid recaps. For those of you who are not familiar with the rapid recap, it is a summary of the video that includes all the motion activities recorded for a selected session.
