Vivotek Vortex Direct-To-Cloud Cameras + VSaaS Tested
Published Mar 02, 2023 15:35 PM
Vivotek is entering the booming direct-to-cloud camera market with its "Vortex" line but how well does it work?
We tested Vortex with two camera models (IB837-HT 5MP bullet and FE931-EHV 12MP fisheye), and in this report, we examine its main strengths and weaknesses, including:
- How does Vortex compare to other direct-to-cloud offerings such as Verkada and Rhombus?
- How well does streaming video work? What, if any, latency issues were found with cloud streaming?
- What, if any, UX / UI issues exist?
- How well does system management work and what, if any, limitations does it have versus competitors?
- How well does search work and what, if any limitations, does it have?
- How well does appearance search work?
- What is pricing and how does it compare to competitors?
In the coming weeks, we will add these results and rank Vortex in our VSaaS Shootout 2023, along with adding OpenEye, Arcules, and others.
