I would like to understand how the remote (e.g. not on the same network, let’s say on 4G) live streaming and video viewing works with Eufy Cams.
I can see 3 possibilities of how it can work:
- The base station streams from the local network (and if so, how can it possibly open the right ports/route the traffic etc).
- All the videos always get uploaded somewhere from the base station so that they are not bound by the security/restrictions of the local network.
- When the streaming is requested from an app (live or not), the videos are uploaded somewhere and the app gets access to it temporarily.
Can someone please explain in details how it works (please feel free to go as technical as you can)?
Thanks in advance.
