Hello !

I just ordered this camera (2530L).
My question is ... this camera can upload events to FTP?

Thanks in advance !

If you can capture a photo and put it in a folder on your computer, you could possibly link that folder to your FTP server and get them remotely.

Thanks for the answer !
True, but will be more simple to have FTP account on this camera. Is not cheap one :)
Have a nice day!

Yes true, but it won't be hard to add a FTP server to your system.
Use CuteFTP or something else that is free.

True, but this means an extra computer running all the time for this ...

Basically, yes.
Or you could possibly set one up with Google Cloud Compute services.  It will involve money but won't cost much, I don't think.
