Directory of VSaaS / Cloud Video Surveillance ProvidersAuthor: IPVM Team, Published on Dec 15, 2017
This directory provides a list of VSaaS / cloud video surveillance providers to help you see and research what options are available.
2018 State of VSaaS Market
While overwhelmingly video surveillance is recorded locally / on-site, cloud recording is a growing option. In particular, cloud recording has become more commonplace in the consumer / residential space where bandwidth constraints are not as much of a concern and eliminating the cost of an on-site recorder is more attractive. However, on the commercial side, the maturation of smart codecs, increase in upstream bandwidth availability, has helped reduced the barriers for larger camera count deployments.
Commercial / Enterprise Focused Providers
Below is a list of VSaaS options focused on the commercial / enterprise side. Note that many established VMSes do not offer cloud video recording:
