Every VMS Will Become a VSaaS

By John Honovich, Published on Feb 21, 2020

VMS is ending.

Soon every VMS will be a VSaaS. Competitive dynamics will be redrawn.

What does this mean?

VMS Historically On-Site

Historically, VMS meant video management software that was deployed on-site. To the extent that it could be watched remotely, it was dependent on the user to set up remote access - port forwarding, VPNs, etc.

We use the term VMS here but the same structure exists for DVRs and NVRs.

VSaaS Originally Cloud Only

Originally, VSaaS was typically cloud-only, meaning no VMS server or appliance on-site, simply cameras phoning home directly to the cloud.

Problems With Both Models

Both of these models have problems.

On-site VMS systems force the user to set up their own remote access. For most, this is time-consuming and something they do not understand well, making it either immediately frustrating to set-up or done in a way that increases exposure to vulnerabilities.
