HSV what is the difference between ‘Video storage’ and ‘video recording’

I pay for the 200 GB iCloud level. I have two Logi Circle View cameras in HomeKit and both are set to record specific movements and save videos in the cloud via the Home app. I thought I would have to upgrade to the 2 TB level for two cameras to work, but it seems to work very well at the 200 GB level. So what’s the difference between “Storing videos” and “recording video”, as the Apple page says? Why do you really need the 2 TB level?

[The Apple HSV page says:](https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210538)> Video streaming and video storage do not require an iCloud storage plan. If you want to record the video, you need a 200 GB iCloud storage plan to support one camera and a 2 TB storage plan to support up to five cameras.
