Security has become increasingly important in recent years. Modern advances in embedded systems, electronics and communications technologies have led to the miniaturization and improvement of the performance of cameras and networking. These changes have given rise to the development of several security systems and technologies. The challenges faced by video surveillance system are namely high cost of ownership, poor accessibility and difficulty in achieving security. Traditional video

Also, once the storage disks are damaged or destroyed, the footages will be unavailable, and thus backup is absolutely needed. In this work, an embedded cloud-based video surveillance system was designed. The embedded cloud-based video surveillance system stores footages in the cloud, eliminates unwanted capture by recording video only when motion is detected, it also aid the human operator in real-time threat detection through the message sent to the user containing video captured. With embedded cloud-based video surveillance system, the camera is activated when motion is detected and the video clips are sent to the user mail through the use of python script.
