Cloud Video Surveillance

The Web Camera Cloud is a hybrid cloud solution that employs Web Camera Pro's real-time smart CCTV analytics technology on the camera stream source side. The solution comprises a cloud server and a local application that can be installed on a personal computer, phone or cloud camera. Utilizing a real-time AI-powered motion detector, Web Camera Pro effectively reduces the burden on communication channels and cloud storage.
The implementation of artificial intelligence significantly alleviates data transmission strain compared to traditional motion detectors.
Our software is compatible with a wide range of cameras, ranging from basic USB to advanced IP cameras, and offers advanced functionalities for online security monitoring. These include motion detection, object detection, time-lapse and event-triggered recording, remote viewing, face and automated car license plate recognition. With a user-friendly interface and streamlined options, surveillance software ensures effortless navigation for optimal user experience.
In order to utilize Video Surveillance Cloud, users need to either download the software onto their personal computer or mobile device or use the pre-installed Web Camera Pro software on the cloud camera. Once registered, users can access the program links through their personal account. The software programs are completely free, with users only charged for the storage space they utilize within the Surveillance Cloud service.

Cloud Solutions for PC

The issue with current cloud solutions is that they perform video analytics on the cloud server. This approach has a significant drawback: traditional cloud infrastructure is not efficient for processing raw video footage. This is because transmitting the entire CCTV stream from security cameras to the cloud service is necessary. This presents a major problem, as CCTV recordings and events may be lost due to communication disruptions or high channel loads, resulting in false alarms caused by artifacts that arise when the connection deteriorates.
Additionally, this solution is quite expensive for a variety of reasons:
  1. The expense of the channel and traffic: 24/7 video streaming can consume up to 648 GB of internet traffic in a single month for each IP camera with a 1920x1080 (HD) resolution. Some providers may reduce channel speed after a certain volume of traffic.
  2. For continuous recording of 1 camera with a 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second, you would need approximately 30.08 terabytes (TB) of disk space for one year.
  3. The high cost of cloud CCTV analytics services.
  4. The requirement to purchase a branded cloud camera that is only compatible with a particular cloud, or to pay for a white static IP address. This service is not inexpensive.
  5. Security is a concern. An IP camera is a simple and poorly protected microcomputer, resulting in a significant number of hacking attempts, information leaks, and DDoS attacks on external IP addresses.
When motion is detected, our app promptly performs real-time object detection and sequentially uploads videos with comprehensive event information to the cloud server. This eliminates the need for a constant communication channel load and obviates the requirement for the cloud server to decode the video, resulting in significantly reduced service costs compared to competitors.
VideoSurveillance.Cloud's tariff plans are not dependent on the number of cameras.

Moreover, Web Camera Pro's local storage buffers data and starts recording 10 seconds before an event occurs, increasing the fault tolerance of the CCTV surveillance system. Triggering events activate recording, and data is transmitted to cloud storage depending on the channel's load.
Web Camera Pro also allows streaming live video from surveillance cameras with almost no delay based on decentralized connections and P2P. VideoSurveillane.Cloud does not require expensive white IP addresses and complex setup procedures using UPnP or DDNS services. This significantly increases the security of the CCTV system, as all devices can be protected by a firewall. The video stream is transmitted directly from one of the user's devices to another of their computer or mobile device without going through cloud servers, providing increased security.
Additionally, Web Camera Pro offers time-lapse recording, allowing users to record video with one frame per second in the absence of motion, reducing disk space costs and increasing the storage time of the CCTV archive.
How Much Disk Space Do You Need?
Let's do the math for various frame rates. Here is the table showing the disk space requirements for different frame rates for both 1080p and 4K resolutions:
The figures in the table are calculated for a one-year duration of uninterrupted recording. To gauge the cumulative storage requirements for multiple cameras over the same timeframe, simply multiply the values in the table by the total number of cameras in your setup. It's important to be aware that storage demands can skyrocket, especially when dealing with 4K footage captured at elevated frame rates. Based on these figures, it's not difficult to calculate the costs for purchasing hard drives or for cloud storage.

Optimizing Disk Space with Web Camera Pro

Traditional CCTV software usually detects pixel changes, which often leads to false alarms due to changing light conditions or other irrelevant movements. Web Camera Pro, however, utilizes neural network algorithms for intelligent object and motion detection, dramatically reducing unnecessary recordings.

The combination of artificial intelligence and data decentralization technology in Web Camera Pro and VideoSurveillance.Cloud allows for the quick and cost-effective implementation of an efficient CCTV surveillance system.

Web Camera Pro is a free video surveillance software. Due to high demand, the number of invitations for connecting Web Camera Pro to the cloud service is limited. To be included in the waiting list, please contact us
