I want to set up a portable Wi-Fi cam at home, and have second thoughts about the security of the footage stored in the cloud.

Could anyone share their experience on that matter.

Also, any chance anybody here is using Homam cam. Would like to hear an honest review form you. Please let know what you're thinking about this cam, If you had s chance to check it out.

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by security? What do you expect to be the purpose of the camera? What do you expect the footage will be protected from? We need answers to these questions to help you.

I don't think a security camera is enough. Have you thought about putting some kind of alarm system or intercom system? I think if you combine all these methods then it will work. Nowadays they make such intercoms that you can activate them via your smartphone. You download the app. You can activate it by downloading the app. And you're safe.

Ok, I used to be a security technician (installing alarms and cameras for several companies), so I think I can help here.

First, you can think of the phrase "home security" as an oxymoron. If we're gonna be rigorous, there's just no such thing.

Then, if we're talking about what most people consider "home security", there are 3 kinds: before the fact, during the fact, and after the fact.

Security "before the fact" would mean taking measures so that potential invaders will either think twice about targeting your house, or will be just unable to enter. Something as inexpensive as a sign from a reputable security company might be enough to deter a wannabe burglar from even considering your place a potential target. From then on, the sky is the limit: multiple, good quality locks, bars on the windows, heavy doors...

Security "during the fact" (which is the kind of security the police should provide), means basically installing an alarm system, ideally monitored by a reputable security firm, to not only deter possible burglars, but eventually catch them if they do break in anyway. Of course, you can set up an alarm system so that it reports to you in case somebody breaks in, which may be a good or a bad thing, depending mainly on your circumstances.

Security "after the fact" is what you are trying to do here. Cameras may be useful to identify burglars after they robbed you. You can opt (again, depending on your circumstances), for services like monitored security cameras (you need to consider your privacy also), or installing cameras (monitored or not) covering your doors and/or windows, etc.

In the case you're asking about, first I would be wary of any security system that uses RF to connect the sensor(s) to the main unit, on the basis that RF can be interfered with. From then on, adding "things that may fail" (like an internet connection, the cloud, etc) is never a good choice.
Then you also need to consider what are you protecting. For example: if you are a billionaire cryptocurrency trader ( Wink), you're gonna need a much better security system than if you're a regular Joe. 

Initially, I would advise you to "leave security systems install to the professionals", but seeing how many "security technicians" don't really have a clue (or don't give a damn) about their chosen profession, I'd just advise you to be careful. Securing a house is not a technically complex job, but it does, in most cases, involve thinking about a gazillion little details most people don't even think about.

My security camera stores the footage in the cloud only for one months. Which is ok for me. If you are checking different security systems, find Tadi Brothers reviews here. They have some very good deals on offer from time to time.

In fact, the issue of home security is very important. Since there are many risks that can harm your home. Thinking about it, I decided that I needed a super cool security system that would help me prevent any trouble that might happen in my house. And my eyes fell on ajax during the selection because the reviews are really impressive. Ajax signaling is as easy to manage as a modern gadget. Therefore, I can monitor everything calmly working in the office and not worry about the safety of my home.
