No not everything has to go through the cloud, the system we have sends it to a local computer that you can access from anywhere.
Installs on a PC, you give the camera a static IP address, tell the software the camera's IP address and the cameras username and password and there you go. As long as the PC is on, you can access it from anywhere.
So it doesn't go to someone else's server, but your PC becomes the server. It can be run on a cheap crap PC without too much trouble. You have to pay for the software once and the app once but that's it.
