Security Cameras with local storage without port forwarding

Hi, I am looking for a recommendation either for a COTS or self built system to monitor 2 doors. Front and back, recording minimum 7 days, but ideally 30. I looked at some cloud based solutions(Nest,Arlo) and not very happy about the constant upload traffic on my internet connection(only got 10mbs up) and the monthly fee.On the other hand, there is Swann and Lorex systems with local storage but remote access either requires me to use a VPN connection or Port forward which isn’t great and I would require me to place a web application firewall in front of the portal. I was originally thinking Unifi Protect since they offer both local storage and remote access without port forwarding. If anyone else knows of any local storage systems that can be accessed without port forwarding that would be great.
