SD card is a very convenient set-up of local storage.When choosing the SD card, it is also important to think of the endurance especially if you record 24/7.

@reolink-fiona Any plans to have SDXC 512GB?
@joseph_1979 NO plan in a short time. I will collect your suggestion and I will let you know when there is good news.
Can we use a local HDD with the Argus 3 pro? If yes, what is the process?Thanks
@f-pierresteguy_441320730525874 Due to battery constraint none of the battery operated cameras can be added to the NVR.
As i know one of the significant advantages of local storage is that it enables applications to function offline. Users can continue using the application and access stored data even when there is no internet connectivity. Local storage allows for quick retrieval and storage of data on the user's device. It eliminates the need to fetch data from a remote server, resulting in faster load times and smoother user experiences.
