Turing Vision VSaaS Tested

By Ilya Ignatenko and Sean Patton, Published Nov 03, 2021, 10:51am EDT

Turing AI (previously Video) is aggressively expanding with lines of relabeled IP Cameras and NVRs (tested) as well as a VSaaS they call "Vision" but how well does Vision work?

IPVM Image

We tested Turing Vision's cloud-based VMS and inside of this report we examine:

  • What features and functionality is missing compared to other VSaaS platforms?
  • What client UX issues were found?
  • How well does it work with 3rd party IP cameras?
  • How does it compare to Verkada and Eagle Eye?
  • What video analytics are offered/supported?
  • What is the streaming latency through the cloud?
