What Are the Most Common Applications For Cloud Video Surveillance Solutions?

January 31st, 2023

Whether you need greater security in a few critical areas of your business, or you’re looking for a complete cloud solution, cloud video surveillance offers multiple benefits for businesses of all industries. In this blog post, we’ll address some of the most common applications for cloud video surveillance.

Cloud VS: A Hybrid Solution For Total Coverage 

Deploying cloud video surveillance is a way to supplement and provide critical areas with an extra layer of protection. Businesses that already have an on-premise solution and want to keep their existing cameras in place – but want to protect their data with an off-premise solution can benefit from cloud video surveillance. With Cloud VS, add an unlimited amount of cameras and storage—so you only pay for what you need.

Cloud VS: Controlled Access to Your Video Evidence 

Ensuring you have the right access control setup is an important consideration when choosing a video security system. Business owners in the cannabis industry have to meet strict (and ever-changing) security compliance regulations on both a state and federal level. Dependent on where their business resides will determine equipment, retention, and access control requirements.

One of the significant differences between traditional and cloud systems is that with an on-premise system, you’re logging into every store from your PC. With Cloud VS, you can log in to a particular store (as opposed to all store locations). Unlike a traditional system, which has limits based on what your software can handle as far as devices, channels, and a user perspective, Cloud VS provides you with the ability to add or delete users on-demand, as well as assign unique permissions to users and all from a centralized interface.

Cloud VS: A Multi-User, Multi-Site Solution 

Multi-user and multi-site considerations are essential, as it dictates what system is best for your business model. When it comes to finding the most efficient video security system, it’s important to consider:

  • Where cameras will be installed
  • Users accessing the system – single vs. multiple
  • How user(s) access the system – on-site vs. remotely

For example, cannabis business owners must store video for a minimum of 45 days, while other states require 90 days or longer. Some states mandate a camera recording your recorder to make sure it’s physically secure! Because on-premise systems require a recorder for each location, those locations are only centrally controlled by accessing all NVR’s from one PC.

Cloud VS streams directly from the camera to the cloud, with all access at the data center level. Unlike on-premise solutions that require you to budget how many users and locations you need at the time of install, Cloud VS doesn’t have a limit of sites, cameras, or users. From a channel count perspective, it’s important to have the flexibility to add cameras over time. Cloud VS makes it easy to scale up – add unlimited cameras, users, and storage as your business grows. Best of all, you only pay for what you need, which is all included in your monthly subscription.
