UK-based cloud video surveillance platform, Videoloft, is starting the year with a bang by announcing the first of many new features planned to launch in 2022. Videoloft customers can now connect a monitor to the Videoloft Cloud Adapter and watch their camera live feeds on a local display.
Until now, wanting local live viewing was one of the only remaining reasons why security installers and users felt it was still necessary to retain on-premise NVRs or DVRs. But now, as well as remote camera viewing from the Videoloft iOS or Android apps or browser-based webviewer, live video feeds can be watched on a monitor over the local network. No latency, almost no bandwidth, just simple local live viewing.
Here are the key features that allow the Videoloft Cloud Adapter to give traditional on-premise NVRs or DVRs a run for their money:
The Videoloft Cloud Adapter, the small bridging device that connects compatible CCTV systems to the platform, instantly upgrades legacy security systems adding all of the above features and more. It is available in an eight or 16 channel version and there is a 64 channel 19” rack mounted solution for larger installations.
The end user demand for cloud-only installations is rapidly growing, but Videoloft can still run alongside a local recorder where required.
“We’re definitely seeing increased adoption of cloud-only video solutions across a wide variety of sectors,” explains Laura Worrell, Videoloft’s Chief Operating Officer. “Cloud-only installations used to be limited to customers with a specific requirement to only store video offsite, but it’s now becoming the norm”.
