Ava Security has launched its new Cloud Connector A750 product to make customer’s existing cameras smart with uniquely scalable real-time AI, adding cloud-based management and analytics to existing systems and devices.
The new A750 is the fifth model in the Cloud Connector range, with Ava Security expanding the portfolio to meet its customers’ growing security requirements. This new model can support up to 50 cameras. At the same time, one of the existing models – A500 – now has increased power and is able to support up to 25 cameras from the previous limit of 16.
Ava Cloud Connector customers across the globe will receive the full power of Ava’s proactive smart analytics and cloud management efficiency in one unified view for all their devices, supporting the needs of a post-COVID-19 reality.
By using a Cloud Connector, customers can mix other vendor’s cameras and Ava Security cameras in a single deployment, meaning customers do not have to ‘rip and replace’ their existing infrastructure. This flexibility of ‘mixing and matching’ cameras means that even if clients use third-party cameras with the Ava Cloud Video Security system, they still benefit from enhanced analytics. Clients have the freedom to choose what makes sense for their security needs, budget and each site’s infrastructure.
The Cloud Connector effectively adds cloud-based management and analytics to existing systems and devices. This enables the same AI-powered proactive detection and notifications, operational analytics and efficient management of existing cameras as with Ava’s own smart cameras.
The Cloud Connector also gives customers the ability to store recordings locally, giving them complete control of their data. It uses a hardened Linux kernel and encrypted data, which provides strong security of all data and recordings. Additionally, it is equipped with a dedicated TPM module, which minimises the risks of cyberthreats. The product will be ready to ship in September.
Sam Lancia, Head of Video Engineering & Co-Founder of Ava Security, comments: “We are delighted to introduce this new Cloud Connector to our expansive video security offering. We understand that when it comes to physical security needs, clients don’t always have the time and budget available to rip and replace all their existing infrastructure, so we’ve made it that much easier for them to get market-leading AI security solutions, regardless of the cameras they have in place. This new model in the Cloud Connector range adds to that flexibility and gives clients complete control of their data. This latest addition to our roster of security products will bolster our offering to new customers and affirm the regular innovation our existing customers have come to expect from Ava Security.”
