by Brianna Crandall — June 30, 2021 — Security solutions provider Videoloft’s cloud video surveillance platform is designed to provide users with a powerful yet highly cost-effective remote recording solution, while providing resellers with a new potential revenue stream to add to their offering portfolio. For large surveillance system users, Videoloft’s cloud video surveillance solution provides affordable secure offsite video backup. For SMBs (small and medium businesses), Videoloft’s ability to record up to 8MP direct to the cloud provides a powerful remote standalone storage solution.
Both applications provide system integrators and resellers with a versatile VSaaS (video software as a solution) for virtually any size system or vertical application. A key benefit of VSaaS solutions is that they can be positioned as an operating expense (OPEX) versus a capital expense (CAPEX), making it easier for users to budget the solution as an ongoing expense for operations rather than a large single one-time investment, points out Videoloft.
Joanna Santander, director of Sales & Business Development, Videoloft, remarked:
Our cloud video surveillance platform provides users and resellers alike with the ideal combination of features, versatility and cost-efficiency. As the need and demand for VSaaS cloud solutions with remote access capabilities continues to increase globally, the benefits across different vertical applications continue to become more evident.
Videoloft use cases
Quick service restaurant (QSR) and retail chains are benefitting from Videoloft’s innovative cloud video surveillance platform as a secure, centralized and long-term video storage solution. It allows them to easily consolidate video from multiple sites and add cloud storage, eliminating the risk of lost footage due to theft or tampering of on-site recorders. Videoloft also provides QSR and retail chains with a way to store video for up to 3+ years, much longer than is possible on conventional network video recorders (NVRs), to protect them from liabilities associated with injury and insurance claims and shrinkage.
For locations that lack power and wired internet infrastructure, such as construction sites, vacant properties and agricultural locations, traditional video surveillance often isn’t feasible, and guards are needed to ensure security. Videoloft provides an alternative solution that can be battery or solar powered and connected via a 4G wireless router. Videoloft’s software constantly monitors the network conditions and deploys dynamic frame rate, bit rate and resolution adjustment when necessary to ensure that footage is sent and recorded even in poor network conditions.
The Videoloft solution provides site managers with the versatility to remotely manage employees, deliveries and health and safety protocols. Videoloft’s video analytics technology enables highly specific alerting options and smart video search, making it fast and easy to locate specific events. Videoloft’s timelapse feature also makes it easy to track development over days, weeks and months, and to share this progress with customers.
Videoloft can be a great solution for education campuses. The platform provides campus security teams with the ability to easily monitor sites even when they are split across multiple locations. With features such as PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) control, two-way-audio and alarm triggering, there are many ways to detect, track and address unwanted visitors.
Cannabis farms and dispensaries can leverage Videoloft’s cloud video surveillance solution to ensure they are in compliance with regulatory requirements. In many states it is mandatory to record 24/7 video both locally and off-site. Videoloft’s live camera-health-monitoring functionality ensures problems are spotted in real time so they can be rapidly diagnosed and resolved, eliminating the possibility of lost video.
