Milestone announces ‘camera-to-cloud’ option for Kite VSaaS software
October 24, 2023 By SP&T Staff
Milestone Systems announced the upcoming release of a new camera-to-cloud deployment option for its Milestone Kite video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) software.
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 takes 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, according to the company.
“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,” says Jesper Just Jensen, VP of products at Milestone Systems.
Camera to Cloud is suited for businesses with multiple locations with a small number of cameras at each site and is 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 recognized and managed as part of the same Kite service as the gateway deployments.
Milestone Kite was introduced in January of this year. The new Camera to Cloud offering is set to be released in Q1, 2024.
