Milestone Systems has announced the upcoming release of a new camera-to-cloud deployment option for its Milestone Kite video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) software.
Known as Milestone Kite Camera to Cloud, the company says that the new option will offer greater simplicity and cost-efficiency to customers using the VSaaS.
According to the company, Milestone Kite Camera to Cloud works with a series of Axis cameras pre-installed with AI-based Axis Object Analytics.
All computing, recording and video storage take place on the cameras, which connect directly to the Milestone Kite cloud.
This can reduce bandwidth load and associated costs, as well as installation and maintenance costs.
“The combination of simplicity and cost efficiency makes Milestone Kite Camera to Cloud a highly practical choice for organizations with smaller or newly built locations, or simply those where having a gateway onsite would be impractical,” said Jesper Just Jensen, VP Products at Milestone Systems.
Camera to Cloud is particularly suitable for businesses with multiple locations with a small number of cameras at each site, Milestone highlights.
It is also beneficial for those with limited IT knowledge, bandwidth limitations or situations where installing on-site gateway hardware is not feasible.
Companies already using the Milestone Kite VSaaS with gateways can expand to new sites with Camera to Cloud.
The new sites will be recognized and managed as part of the same Kite service as the gateway deployments.
This makes Camera to Cloud a practical choice for businesses with multiple sites, such as those in the retail, hospitality and education sectors, Milestone says.
