When you think about a traditional CCTV setup, you think about the cameras. This is usually followed by the multi-screen setup with someone constantly watching. But this doesn’t have to be the case when you opt for cloud CCTV.
What is Cloud CCTV/Video Surveillance?
With Cloud CCTV, all footage recorded by your cameras goes directly to cloud storage via the internet. Using a desktop or mobile app, you can then access a portal to view recorded footage or a live stream. This means you can access the footage from your camera(s) anytime, wherever you are.
Additionally, the footage stored is all encrypted, meaning it can only be accessed with a secure login to the platform.
What are the Benefits of Cloud CCTV?
It Keeps Costs Down
Cloud CCTV is a cost-effective choice in comparison to a traditional on-premise system. The only up-front cost is the cameras and installation. There is no need to purchase expensive hardware to maintain operations.
24/7 Access to the Footage – Wherever You Are
Using a desktop or mobile app, you can access your cameras and footage when you need to. Whether you’re at a coffee shop or tanning abroad, as long as you have an internet connection you can access the footage.
It’s Always Up to Date
The software is hosted in the cloud. As a result, updates are automatically installed, keeping the platform secure. Also without the need for on-premise hardware, you won’t face interruptions from maintenance or failure.
