4 Things we learned about cloud-managed video surveillance

Home » Blog » 4 Things we learned about cloud-managed video surveillance

Companies today spend millions of dollars on video surveillance systems, often with little to show for it. Research has found that only a fraction of recorded video is ever used before it’s overwritten with new video. Cloud-managed video surveillance systems unlock additional value with the power of connectivity by leveraging the video with integrated solutions before it is overwritten or recorded over. Integrators and end-users alike recognize the benefits and flexibility that cloud-managed video provides by streamlining daily operations, improving cybersecurity, and optimizing decisions with accurate and actionable reporting. In the past, these benefits were only available to organizations that could afford complex custom integration, costly localized servers, and well-paid network engineers. Now, cloud-managed video solutions offer this same intelligence to small, medium, and large businesses at a fraction of the cost and with significantly less complexity.

Here are the four things we learned by implementing a cloud-managed video surveillance system:

Improved Cybersecurity

Cloud-managed web services, such as OpenEye OWS, gives business leaders the tools and features needed to deploy a best-in-class, cloud-managed video surveillance solution without compromising network security, customers, employees, or processes.  With no open inbound ports, multi-factor authentication, encrypted communication, single sign-on and centralized user management, a cloud-managed platform makes it easier to access and use video intelligence as a business tool while seamlessly integrating web services within the organization’s existing IT infrastructure to improve cybersecurity and reduce risk.

Intelligent Alerts

Having a cloud-managed video system, powered by OpenEye Web Services, provides actionable intelligence to help run the business more efficiently. The OWS cloud allows users to conveniently manage alerts and reports from a centralized portal for all users and systems across the organization. Event data generated by motion, alarm panels, access control systems, video analytics, and sensors is stored in the cloud where its strengths for data analysis can be leveraged to process large amounts of data to uncover new insights.

Optimized Decisions

Discover the power of the cloud to increase business intelligence with custom reports, cloud-based video sharing and real-time alerts. Collaboration is enhanced by exporting video clips to the cloud and sharing with other users. You can also create and schedule reports to be sent to recipients on a recurring basis or program alerts to be pushed to users’ mobile devices or email. With an OpenEye solution, it all can be managed through the cloud.

Operational Efficiency

Overhead reduction for IT and Operations is achieved by transitioning to a cloud-managed surveillance system. These systems minimize on-site service calls and eliminate recursive tasks such as updating forgotten user passwords or entering remote connection settings. Designed to be managed entirely remotely, an OpenEye Web Services platform moves functions like clip sharing, health monitoring and user management to the cloud, saving time-consuming travel between remote sites.
