Are you utilising the power of the cloud when it comes to security cameras

Let’s take a look at Hybrid Cloud Security Cameras

Having spent 25 years installing CCTV systems in all sorts of vertical markets and seeing businesses having to adapt to working remotely and utilising cloud technology to operate during this pandemic, we are seeing a shift in our customers mindset to CCTV in the cloud and Cloud platforms in general.

Being able to see cameras across all sites from one login on any device is becoming more and more appealing.  To be able to pull in 2 cameras from 50 sites and save that view and name it (say Front Doors or Tills ) and then with one click access all those cameras is becoming more useful as time goes on.

For regional loss prevention managers, security teams or regional retail managers to access video footage of their stores, without travelling to that location is becoming more valuable than ever.

We have also noticed that the ability to add and remove users from the system and to be able to control who sees what and who has access to certain cameras, is so much easier to manage centrally when running with cloud cctv cameras and or software.

One system that stands out in this field is Verkada. Their solution offers edge processing, where all data is instantly analysed and processed at the camera. This enables ‘multi-site’ users to scale coverage without traditional limitations because with all footage stored on the camera, bandwidth consumption is minimal.  This brings down the costs of supporting additional equipment for processing footage.

Verkada’s centralised management platform is where the magic happens as all video footage can be accessed from any camera added to the customers’ account.

Hybrid cloud architecture

In a nutshell Verkada’s goal is to make it easy to buy, deploy and manage large-scale enterprise video security systems across hundreds of cameras and dozens of sites.

This hybrid cloud architecture approach makes it easy to access video footage from hundreds of cameras across any platform (web, mobile apps, tablets, and Apple TV). Verkada is perfect for any business entity that has multiple locations or multiple buildings on a site where cabling from building to building is difficult or costly

Retailers, Schools and Colleges or Offices and Manufacturing are all in need of this kind of solution.

Ready to use, out-of-the-box, without the need for technical configurations makes Verkada a very attractive end-to-end solution for security professionals, and simplifies the day-to-day of surveillance management for their organisation.

Defending against IoT threats

An end-to-end solution also increases defences against threats in today’s Internet of Things (IoT) space. IP cameras have historically been some of the most vulnerable devices. Verkada cameras save time by updating automatically, and they are unable to accept 3rd party software (and the risks that come with it).

With the world of physical security evolving and many manufacturers looking to utilise the cloud, isn’t about time you looked at this kind of architecture for your business?
