Quick Start Steps


Select Your Service Model

Use Your Own IP Cameras, Webcams or DVRs

This is the most popular and flexible service model. You just need to configure your device to upload footage to CameraFTP for storage and remote monitoring. This model is designed for users who already have a camera and know how to configure the IP camera. Webcams, old smart phones and tablets can also be used as security cameras by installing CameraFTP apps.

Bundled Plans with Preconfigured Cameras/NVRs

Skip the research, skip the lines at Best Buy, skip the setup and configuration -- Bundled plans are designed for users who want a complete CCTV DVR security system that works out of the box. It is an ideal security service for lazy or busy persons. Just order a bundled plan online and wait for the device to be shipped.

Configure Your IP Cameras or Install Our App

With your own IP cameras / DVRs, you need to configure them to upload directly to your CameraFTP account. CameraFTP offers 3-day free trial. Please visit our support page for detailed info on how to configure an IP camera. You can also try our Camera Configuration Tool.

To use your webcam, smartphone or tablet as an IP camera, you just need to install our VSS software (for PC) or Mobile Security Camera App (for mobile devices).

You can also use our Virtual Security System with your IP cameras. VSS can connect to your cameras' video feeds and display the live views just like a CCTV system. In addition, VSS can automatically upload video clips to the cloud. Low-cost IP cameras usually can only upload image snapshots. With VSS, you don't need to buy expensive IP cameras to upload video clips.


Live View and Playback from Anywhere

Watch your securely stored footage from your desktop or smartphone, receive motion alerts, download data for preserving evidence, share or publish cameras with others. Just download CameraFTP Viewer app or use any browser.
