How cloud backup for Dahua works

Use our website to create your cloud plan - choose camera count, resolution, and cloud storage duration.

Step 1

We'll send you a Cloud Adapter. It takes just minutes to install via our website, or mobile app.

Step 2

View your camera's live streams and recorded footage 24/7 using the Videoloft web viewer, or mobile app.

Step 3

Add cloud backup to your Dahua NVR/DVR, or replace it completely

Videoloft allows you to record CCTV footage straight to the cloud bypassing your local Dahua storage. This saves space on-site and removes the risk of your recorder being damaged or tampered with.

Alternatively, you may still want to keep your Dahua NVR/DVR and back-up your recorder to the cloud so you have remote access to it. Either way, it takes minutes to set up – all you need to do is connect the Videoloft Cloud Adapter to the same network as your recorder.

Dahua cloud FAQs

What Dahua camera and recorder models are supported by Videoloft?

We’ve integrated with Dahua’s API meaning we can support almost all models of Dahua IP cameras, NVRs and DVRs.

How do I connect my Dahua DVR to cloud storage?

Connecting your Dahua DVR or NVR to the cloud couldn’t be simpler. All you need is the Videoloft Cloud Adapter and our iOS or Android app to get started. It can also be completed remotely, and, unlike many traditional systems, doesn’t require port forwarding to allow for remote access! 

What are the costs for Dahua cloud storage?

We’ve kept our prices very competitive, for end-users Dahua cloud storage pricing plans start from just $7.89/£7.49 per month. We also offer discounted rates for our partners, which can be up to 8 – 10 times cheaper than other cloud providers!

How is Videoloft different from the Dahua DMSS app?

Videoloft is a true cloud solution, it transmits and stores video via the cloud – so if your recorder is compromised your recorded footage is still accessible via the Videoloft cloud. The Dahua DMSS app only connects to the local storage which means that if your recorder is stolen or damaged you won’t be able to access any footage.

How can I access my Dahua NVR/DVR remotely?

All you need to connect a Dahua NVR or DVR to the cloud is the Videoloft Cloud Adapter and the Videoloft mobile app, then follow these simple steps:

  • Connect the Cloud Adapter to the network and power on.
  • Tap ‘Install’ on the main menu to begin and enter the Cloud ID when prompted.
  • When the Cloud Adapter is discovered, it will be linked with the account you’re using to set it up.
  • Tap ‘Continue’ to proceed with the installation and scan the network for compatible recorders
  • Select the required recorder, enter the username and password and you’re all set!

This will allow you to access the footage on your recorder remotely.

I'm based in the United States of America, how long will it take for my Cloud Adapter to arrive?

On average, it takes 2-3 working days for our Cloud Adapters to reach customers in the USA.

Security - our number one priority

Video encryption

Video files are transmitted over encrypted TLS (HTTPS) channels and are stored at rest in AWS servers using 256-bit encryption.

External security validation

Videoloft commission regular external penetration tests to review the end-to-end platform security protocols. 

Continuous updates

The Videoloft Cloud Adapter software is regularly updated, providing security improvements as well as new features & functionality. 

Password encryption

The users’ Videoloft account password is stored at rest in AWS servers using 256-bit AES encryption, and during password verification it is sent over encrypted TLS channels. When cameras/recorders are paired with the Videoloft cloud, their passwords are encrypted in transit via AES-256. They are then stored on the Videoloft Cloud Adapter, encrypted using AES-128, and are never transmitted outside of the local network.
