Intelligent surveillance in the cloud

September 2018 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Integrated Solutions

The world of security has changed drastically over the past few years, including developments in networking, security camera systems, surveillance software and cloud computing. We are entering an era where billions of devices will be able to collect and transmit data

via the Internet.

Cloud-based computing has touched just about every industry and it will continue to reshape the security and surveillance sector. Security can now be offered as a service that is managed remotely, freeing up human and capital resources, with a focus on improving productivity and efficiency, generating a return on investment.

SecuVue from Secutel Technologies allows virtually any business to monitor their offices, warehouses, plants or stores remotely, from any part of the world, as long as they have an Internet connection. The SecuVue Cloud Video Recorder (CVR) and Cloud Bridge bring intelligence to most cameras that are already installed.

A single SecuVue CVR can support anything from 1 to 64 cameras on a single unit in a cost-effective way. Or you can link the SecuVue CVR to your existing NVR or DVR and select the cameras which should be linked to the SecuVue cloud-based video management system.

SecuVue can handle and manage several camera streams per server without compromising speed or accuracy. It is designed to manage exceptions only, but also caters for continuous streaming for real-time surveillance.

The system takes care of the hard work of managing bandwidth availability and usage. Control room staff only need to deal with exceptions, based on each user’s business rules.

There are a few storage options to choose from, based on what each company’s requirements are:

• Local storage, record on local storage (up to 12 TB per CVR) in full HD.

• Bridge, the SecuVue can act as a bridge between the cameras and the cloud.

• Cloud storage sends snapshots (not footage) to the cloud in a low resolution to save time and bandwidth.

• Exception only, e.g. footage based on movement detection only.

It is no longer a requirement for companies to invest in high-end cameras to do video analytics. The SecuVue platform enables standard cameras to have access to analytics, such as: facial collection and recognition, people counting, activity heatmaps, scene analysis, intrusion detection etc.
