Geovision Launches Direct Cloud Offering

By IPVM Team, Published Jan 18, 2017, 12:59pm EST

Add cloud, subtract integrator.

Geovision has launched myGVcloud [link no longer available], an offering that allows consumers to buy cameras and cloud services directly from Geovision. An image below from our testing:

This is certainly not the first professional manufacturer to offer a cloud service (e.g., Axis has had AVHS for more than a decade) but Geovision has made it that consumers buy directly off the Geovision myGVcloud website. Indeed, we bought a $50 720p camera and tested out the service.

I like the built-in auto-reboot function of GV cams. Without that, you have to reset the camera manually every 2-3 days...
