Samsung SmartCam HD Plus security camera gets updated with cloud storage option and improved motion detection

Hanwha Techwin America (the Hanwha Group acquired Samsung Techwin America, but the companies agreed to keep Samsung in the product name) fixed one of the Samsung SmartCam HD’s biggest weaknesses on Thursday by adding cloud storage to the product's feature set: Owners now have the option of subscribing to SmartCloud instead of relying on the onboard SD card that included with the camera.

As we pointed out in our review, without this feature, you lose your forensic evidence of the crime if the thief steals the camera (or its SD card) during the break-in. The absence of cloud storage apparently wasn’t lost on customers: Hanwha Techwin says feedback showed “an overwhelmingly high demand for cloud services.” The SmartCloud subscription service comes in three tiers: $50 per year to store up to five days of continuous video, a $70 plan for seven days of storage, and a $200 plan to store up to 21 days. You can also subscribe on a monthly basis for $5, $8, or $20 respectively.
