Video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) helps integrators make their business operations more efficient and thrill their customers with innovative products.
The key to success is in the cloud, even if many organizations still use DVR/NVR systems for video surveillance. Although these systems are powerful, many of them operate with outdated technology that cannot be easily and flexibly adapted to new requirements.
Companies that follow sustainable technology strategies know that traditional systems tend to have flaws that can lead to inefficiencies and security breaches. Your task as an integrator is to protect your customers from this.
Cloud-based video surveillance platforms, designed as modular architectures, have proven to be much more adaptable and therefore more powerful and reliable in the long run. This is where Video Surveillance as a Service, or VSaaS comes into play.
VSaaS refers to cloud-based video surveillance, typically including video recording, storage, remote viewing, management alerts, cyber security and more. Here is how cloud based video surveillance makes the life of system integrators easier:
• Access to latest technology lets you develop new products and solutions for your customers.
• On-demand deployment helps you tailor your products exactly to the needs of your customers.
• Continuous remote support helps you deliver excellent service and real-time maintenance.

Technology trends that drive VSaaS
Cloud video is nothing new. However, the technologies that create completely new opportunities for users and integrators have developed rapidly in recent years.
• High-bandwidth 5G networks allow ultra-fast data transmission speeds and simplify the control and maintenance of camera systems over long distances.
• Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) allows processing and analyzing huge amounts of video data directly in IoT cameras without sending them to the cloud.
• Modular platform architectures based on camera operating systems like our Security & Safety Things OS allow flexible testing and deployment on demand.
• AI apps designed for security cameras enable smart video analytics for a wide range of business applications and industries far beyond security and safety.
• High-level data protection by storing and processing sensitive data through edge computing versus vulnerable data transmission into the cloud.
Many software developers worldwide are constantly working on new solutions to get more out of surveillance cameras. At Security & Safety Things, we aim to bring together app developers, system integrators and camera manufacturers on one open platform and marketplace for latest camera AI.

Downloading and installing apps for your cameras is as easy as searching and clicking. Our Application Store works in the same familiar way as other online shops.
Detect and fix irregularities in time
Flaws in surveillance hardware or software can lead to irregularities or even failure of entire systems. Managing complex camera systems with hundreds of cameras is a snap when using our Device Management Portal. You get access to all of your cameras and automatically receive notification from the system when intervention is required.
Save time and effort for route tasks
At our Device Management Portal each camera is represented by a digital twin, that can be configured individually. It is just as easy to replace or add cameras to your systems. A large part of the maintenance and implementation work can be done remotely without having to travel to the customer in each individual case.
What's in for your customers
When it comes to providing your customers with the latest AI technologies, VSaaS is the first choice for your business. The number of apps you can use to make your customers' cameras smarter is growing daily. It's up to you to get more out of your customers' security systems now!
VSaaS offers you a very flexible and sustainable way to position yourself as innovation on behalf of your customers. Smart video analytics solutions are already available for a wide range of applications and industries, waiting to be put together.
