I have setup a security camera for a neighbor and would like to use DriveHQ to give my neighbor an easy access to the movies from the camera on her Mac. However, the automatic ftp upload from the camera to DriveHQ seems not to work (but it does work if I configure the camera to upload to a folder on my webserver).

Please see the enclosed picture with the settings of the camera.

In the DriveHQ account I have created a folder "Camera" in "My Storage". Why are the movie files not ending up in this folder?

Thanks. It certainly is ok to restrict this feature to paid accounts. But why not saying so clearly on your website?

... and one more question: is there a possibility to try this feature for at least a day before updating to a paid account?

DriveHQ has launched www.cameraFTP.com, a new FTP service optimized for IP cameras. DriveHQ offers a complete Cloud IT Solution, which includes a state-of-the-art FTP server hosting service. Many security camera users have used our FTP service to store the recorded images offsite. Because DriveHQ.com has so many features, it might be a little hard to find the right features for security cameras.

With www.CameraFTP.com, it is much easier. You can configure your camera to upload images to ftp.cameraftp.com, (or IP Address: 66.220.9.45), and you can remotely monitor the scene or play back the old images using our CameraShow feature.

Security cameras are not secure themselves. They can be easily destroyed or tampered. By using CameraFTP service, even if an intruder destroys the security camera, he cannot delete the images stored in CameraFTP's secure data center.

If you already have a security camera (or network camera, IP camera, surveillance camera), you definitely should try our CameraFTP service. If you don't have a security camera yet, you might want to buy one now. The cost has dropped dramatically in the past few years. Now you can buy a decent quality wireless security camera for only about $100.  Dependent on your image quality and upload frequency, CameraFTP service starts at only $1.5/month!

For only about $100 to a few hundred dollars, you can make your home or business much more secure. Isn't it a very good investment?
