Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS)

Hosted, cloud-based video surveillance or “Video Surveillance as a Service” (VSaaS) offers end users a complete, managed video surveillance solution. VSaaS can include services such as real-time video, recording, cloud storage, remote management, security, and event detection and alerts.

Why VSaaS Matters to Your Customers

According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), retail theft totaled about $50 billion per year, and a study by Hiscox, revealed employee theft costs businesses an average of $1.13 million annually. Video surveillance can deter theft, and, if a crime does occur, video can be the evidence that leads to an arrest. Video surveillance systems can also be used to discourage harassment or violence in the workplace. When integrated with other solutions, video can provide data that enhances traffic counting, point of sale (POS) and other business solutions for greater insights into business operations or employee performance. Businesses can also leverage video surveillance solutions for training purposes. A cloud-based Video Surveillance as a Service solution has several compelling advantages over on-premises systems, including easy deployment, access from mobile phones or remote workstations, the ability to easily scale services, and automatic system updates.

Why Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) is an Opportunity

With Video Surveillance as a Service, integrators, managed services providers (MSPs), and value-added resellers (VARs) can provide the feature-rich solution your clients need for a monthly fee, rather than large, upfront expenses. VSaaS also enables your business to maximize return with the ability to provide services to multiple clients from one solution, make more efficient use of your resources, maximize profits, and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

There are opportunities to upgrade video surveillance systems in a variety of industries including healthcare, banking, retail, manufacturing and warehousing, education, and government. There are also opportunities for new installations in smaller businesses—which may find the predictable monthly cost vs. a capital expenditure more budget-friendly than an on-premises system.
