SFTP stands for Secure File Transfer Protocol, it uses a secure shell encryption to provide a higher level of security when receiving files from the IP camera. Please make sure you have access to a properly configured SFTP server before proceeding. Please note, the SFTP protocol will use port 22 instead of port 21 to transfer files. For more details on how to set your recordings to record to an SFTP server, please refer to the information provided below.
Step 1: Open the web user interface (Web UI) of your camera using a web browser. For more information on how to access the web UI, click here.
