Surveillance as a service for analogue CCTV systems

Cloudview : 29 January, 2014  (New Product)
A new Video Surveillance as a Service offering provides digital surveillance networking and video management for analogue CCTV systems
Surveillance as a service for analogue CCTV systems

The world’s first corporate-grade surveillance solution designed to deliver the benefits of IP and cloud-based technology without the associated costs or complexity is now available from Video Surveillance-as-a-Service (VSaaS) supplier, Cloudview.

Despite rapid expansion continuing to be experienced globally in CCTV surveillance, there remains a stubborn attachment to analogue with digital IP systems still accounting for little more than a fifth of new installations and a huge installed base, highly reluctant to change.

According to Cloudview CEO, James Wickes, one reason for this is the need to rip and replace existing analogue CCTV infrastructures in order to upgrade. Moreover, despite benefits such as simpler remote monitoring, wireless connectivity and integration with other applications, he believes buyers remain suspicious of digital solutions, viewing them as more complex and insecure.

Paradoxically, the benefits of IP surveillance are still coveted by analogue customers - a paradox Cloudview sets out to address with its easy to install and very affordable VSaaS package. Comprising a small yet highly intelligent Visual Network Adapter (VNA) connected to the company’s cloud-based Visual Network System (VNS), Cloudview will bring analogue CCTV into the 21st century.

Key advantages and benefits of the Cloudview solution are:

* Can be added to any existing analogue CCTV system without impacting existing recording/monitoring arrangements
* Scalable from one to thousands of cameras
* No up-front investment in IP infrastructure required
* Installs in minutes with minimal technical knowledge required
* Support for wired, WiFi and 3G/4G connectivity
* Minimal bandwidth and storage overheads
* Easily integrated with external alarm sensors and device actuators
* Corporate grade security to protect both data transfers and stored footage
* Monitoring of camera availability and alerting when cameras go offline
* Edge recording to SD Card if network connection lost
* Easy to use Cloud-based management and monitoring platform
* Built-in motion detection
* Email and SMS alerting
* Integration with leading ARC (Alarm Receiving Centre) platforms
* Automatic remote updates

The cloud-based video surveillance system is a scalable, user-friendly and affordable platform that can be managed and accessed from a browser using a notebook, tablet or Smartphone anywhere in the world.

Cloudview can be used to extend surveillance systems to cope with remote sites as well as adding remote monitoring and alerting to an existing CCTV system without the need for complex VPN tunnelling, fixed IP addressing or additional infrastructure investment. video footage is protected from tampering or accidental loss.

The system can be used to visually verify intruder alarm activations thereby helping to minimise false alarms.

For users contemplating the switch to full IP surveillance systems, Cloudview can enable upgrades to take place at a steady pace whilst minimizing the cost of such upgrades by making use of existing analogue equipment.

Commenting on the launch, James Wickes said, “The analogue comfort blanket has served the surveillance market well but is starting to show its age and needs to be brought up to date. That shouldn’t, however, mean throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Which is why we have developed Cloudview to deliver remote camera monitoring and management in a format that can be added to existing analogue setups. It is simple to install and doesn’t require significant additional investment.”
