IP Camera Bandwidth and Storage Calculator

This IP camera bandwidth and storage calculator is hosted to help you decide the needs of your chosen CCTV security solution. By inputting the resolution, number of cameras you’ll be using, as well as the frame-rate and number of days recording you need, you can see what size hard drives you’ll need to purchase, and the bit rate your NVR will need to support.

This is only an estimate, not an exact figure, however it should hopefully help you in building your IP camera system and guide you towards the correct requirements for your build.

You can view our range of CCTV hard drives, as well as our range of NVRs, at
