Technical description

SD Card recording Cloud connects cameras directly into our secure central Cloud. Cameras stream over our secure VPN connection without the need for a local recording server

Live or Playback is streamed from the camera to the VENZO Secure Cloud over our secured VPN, then to any number of clients globally. Recording is done constantly on the cameras' SD Card (on-event recording support depending on camera model). Recordings can then be retrieved to the Cloud for central playback/export.

Alarms are delivered from the Cloud to any number of clients/workstations. Control centers can be connected to the Cloud for monitoring.

SD Card recording video recordings can be retrieved to the Cloud in the following ways:

VSaaS SD Card recording on motion retreival

Video is retrieved in the Cloud on detecting motion in front of the camera. The video retrieval can be done a few seconds before the motion itself to capture the full scene.

VSaaS SD Card recording on alarm retreival

Video is retrieved in the event of an alarm event in the system. Alarms can be triggered based on various edge analytic events or conditions.

VSaaS SD Card recording manual retreival

Video is retrieved manually to the Cloud. Video can be stored up to the available Cloud storage.

We strongly recommend SanDisk Extreme SD cards, as these are endurance optimized for video surveillance.
