Cloud storage is all the rage these days, and Logitech
's not missing the boat. The company has just announced the Alert Video Security System, which is gaining Dropbox support. A year or so ago, the Logitech Alert HD digital video security system was launched to help you watch over the people and places you care about the most. With Dropbox
– in addition to existing Logitech Alert on-camera video storage and PC video backup – you now have an additional storage option that gives you even more piece of mind. Whether at home or on the road, Dropbox's automatic backup and password protection helps ensure that the Logitech Alert HD videos backed up to your PC are automatically and safely uploaded to the cloud. Dropbox uses the same security methods as banks for data transfer and storage – adding that additional layer of data protection – so you can be confident saved videos will remain protected and private.
Starting today, Logitech Alert users can access a bevy of Dropbox storage packages – ranging from an initial free service for up to 2 GBs, to an upgraded 50 GB service for $9.99 per month and 100 GBs for $19.99 per month. Once you sign up for an account and download Dropbox, simply configure your storage settings within Logitech Alert Commander and the Dropbox software. As long as both Dropbox and Logitech Alert Commander are running, Logitech Alert footage will automatically sync with your Dropbox account transferring and storing security video files.
