SmartVision is a free video surveillance software that facilitates the recording from IP cameras and the creation of a local video archive. It detects objects, recognizes faces, and records time-lapses. When paired with the premium feature of Video Surveillance Cloud service interaction, it overcomes several limitations encountered in traditional cloud services, such as data loss due to poor internet connectivity, bandwidth limitations, false triggers, high cost per camera, and limited video data retention.
High-resolution cameras typically require substantial bandwidth, which can result in network congestion, slowing down the internet speed for other devices connected to the same network. The limited bandwidth provided by internet service providers can be quickly exhausted when several high-resolution cameras are operating simultaneously.
However, solutions like SmartVision , when paired with Video Surveillance Cloud, address many of these concerns. Firstly, they allow unlimited access to video archives for any number of cameras since archives are stored locally on the users computer. Secondly, video analytics is performed locally using the SmartVision software, eliminating additional costs. Additionally, the system significantly reduces local disk and cloud storage needs through the application of AI technologies and reduced frames per second during periods of no movement.
Definition of CCTV Systems:
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems refer to a network of cameras and recording equipment used for surveillance purposes. Unlike broadcast television, the signal in a CCTV system is not openly transmitted but is instead monitored, typically for security and surveillance purposes. These systems are prevalent in various settings, capturing and recording footage that can be reviewed or monitored in real-time to enhance security, deter crime, and assist in investigations.
