7 Reasons Why Multisite Businesses are Turning to Cloud Video Surveillance – Including Remote Viewing

July 19, 2021 Eagle Eye Networks

If you own or operate a multi-location commercial business, such as a retail shop, or quick-service restaurant (QSR) franchise, you know how difficult it is to monitor your entire regional operation. Because, let’s face it, you can’t be everywhere at once! 

Using a cloud-based video management system (VMS) enables you to remotely view your business and security camera footage from anywhere, any time, on a single screen, all with lower costs and enhanced cybersecurity. Gain business insights into your various locations, and view the cash register, food prep line, product displays, and more, whether you’re able to visit onsite or not.

A Cloud VMS offers several key benefits that enhance your business operations, save you money, and improve the customer experience. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of a modern cloud VMS and how it can help your business address challenges and run more efficiently. 

Top 7 Benefits of a Cloud-Based VMS       

Most multisite business operators deal with several onsite surveillance challenges. From limited to no remote viewing capabilities, high IT overhead for maintenance and repair, to lack of cybersecurity and business intelligence to enhance operations, the issues are numerous. The benefits of a cloud VMS make this technology stand out as an affordable and effective commercial business solution. 

Here are the top seven benefits of a cloud VMS for your security camera system: 

  1. Enables remote viewing of your locations and video footage from anywhere, 24/7, using a mobile app or computer.
  1. Integrates easily with third-party applications with mission-critical business applications across a range of industries, such as point-of-sale (POS), alarm monitoring, and access control systems, to provide you greater insight into your day-to-day business.
  1. Works with your existing security cameras and cabling, so you don’t have to invest more time and money on an upgrade or replacement to access new features from your surveillance system. You can choose from thousands of camera options with no vendor lock-in, meaning a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for you.
  1. Provides you with advanced analytics that give you valuable insight into integrated systems, potential employee training opportunities, and customer patterns and buying behaviors. 
  1. Allows you to easily share important video clips, adjust camera resolution and retention, and delegate system access remotely from your web browser. 
  1. Offers more robust cybersecurity that prevents cameras from communicating with the internet and blocks cameras from being compromised, reducing the risk of hackers attacking your system. 
  1. Saves you money in the long run, over an off-the-shelf “security kit” that contains a cheap digital video recorder (DVR) and four to eight cameras. Moving the computing and video storage infrastructure to the cloud results in a TCO considerably below a typical onsite system.
