Security Monitor Pro records a compressed WMV file in low, medium, and high bit rates.

If you are continuously recording, the highest bit rate of 512kbps is approximately 5.5GB per day. With 16 cameras, this will be 88GB per day or 2.64 Terabytes per month. A single 3TB drive should hold all the data from your 16 cameras for 1 month.
