Directory of 30+ VSaaS / Cloud Video Surveillance ProvidersBy: IPVM Team, Published on Jun 07, 2019
This directory provides a list of VSaaS / cloud video surveillance providers to help you see and research what options are available.
2019 State of VSaaS Market
While overwhelmingly video surveillance is recorded on-premise, 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, on-camera recording, increases in upstream bandwidth availability reduce the barriers for larger camera counts. Additionally, development and marketing investments from inside and outside the video surveillance industry is increasing acceptance by end users and integrators.
