Directory of VSaaS / Cloud Video Surveillance ProvidersBy: 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.
