3 advantages of cloud-based CCTV

3 advantages of cloud-based CCTV

26th September 2017

It can be easy to overlook video surveillance when making plans for a commercial premises, but this is one thing almost all business owners will have to budget for. If you’re beginning to chew over CCTV solutions, you may be interested in cloud-based surveillance solutions. Here are three main advantages of cloud-based video monitoring.

It Requires Less Equipment

One of the major concerns for a lot of modern business owners is data centre security. One great thing about cloud tech is that it completely eliminates the need for a dedicated server to store CCTV footage on, and instead saves the files on a cloud server. This means that there’s less space needed for a video monitoring system, which can be a huge help if you’re already squeezed for space in your premises as it is. When you choose a cloud-based CCTV system, all you need is the cameras themselves, a monitoring device, and reliable internet access.

Installation is Easier

If you’re looking to save money by installing your video surveillance system in-house, then a cloud-based solution is the way to go. Because there’s far less equipment involved, setting up devices and wiring them into a functional system is much easier than the alternatives. Furthermore, cloud systems are easier to set up and configure initially. If you wanted to access a traditional system from a mobile device, or to use advanced programs like Sharpview Intelligent Video Analytics, you’d either need to hire in a professional, or know a considerable amount about networking. Cloud-based systems, on the other hand, make it much easier to get everything up and running.

More Secure Footage

Another major benefit that’s driving the cloud surveillance niche is that the footage is much more secure. Because the footage is saved through cloud tech, rather than a local, physical server, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to review recorded footage, even if parts of the system are severely damaged. If your business has a high risk of burglary, then this is one advantage you really can’t overlook. There have been many cases of burglars going out of their way to damage CCTV servers in the buildings they target, thereby destroying crucial evidence.
