Some security systems will have web portals for accessing your alerts or videos, which will give you more flexibility for viewing.

Businesses will need to store more footage on the cloud then a homeowner will. Your security company will inform you on their cloud services and help you choose how long you need to keep your footage. Businesses might want to keep it for a month or more where as a homeowner may choose to keep footage for a day or two. Some companies will offer cloud service within a package deal for monthly alarm monitoring.
