How Much Network Bandwidth Do Video Devices Use?

You are here:
< All Topics

For the latest video devices, the minimum requirement is 0.5 Mbps of upload speed per video device for consistent performance at reduced quality.

When a video device uses bandwidth video devices do not consume any bandwidth unless they are uploading recorded video clips or someone is actively looking at live video or SVR recorded footage.

Even when in use, the video device cannot consume all available bandwidth because routers allocate bandwidth fairly among all the devices that are on the network (e.g., computers, tablets, etc.).

Devices/features requiring additional bandwidth include:

  • HD video streaming
  • Two-Way Audio for cameras
  • Stream Video Recorder integration
  • Doorbell Camera
