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 new option will offer even greater simplicity and cost-efficiency to customers. As an alternative or expansion to gateway installations, Camera to Cloud builds on Milestone’s focus on flexible and scalable solutions that support evolving needs.
Milestone Kite Camera to Cloud VSaaS 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. 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 Milestone Kite with gateways can expand to new sites with Camera to Cloud. The new sites will be recognised and managed as part of the same Kite service as the gateway deployments.
This enhances the appeal of Milestone Kite as a suitable option for different budget and bandwidth situations, making Camera to Cloud a practical choice for businesses with multiple sites, such as those in the retail, hospitality, and education sectors.
Milestone Kite was introduced in January of this year, providing a simple, secure, and scalable cloud video security solution, particularly for small and medium-sized organizations looking for a budget-friendly video management option. The introduction of Camera to Cloud enhances Milestone Kite’s commitment to easy cloud video security.
With the new Camera to Cloud offering, set to be released in Q1, 2024 – there are more options available, and customers can save on costs and bandwidth.
