3 types of connectivity set up for Network Cameras: Number 3: CLOUD


Cameras connect to a user account service hosted in the cloud. Mobile viewer apps connect to the same user account to view live cameras and recordings. This type of service is known by many names, for example: VSaaS, (Video surveillance as a Service) AVHS (AXIS Video Hosting Service), HVR (Hosted Video Recording), VSP (Video Surveillance Provider), MVS (Managed Video Service).

A major advantage of a VHS system is that there is no need to open a port on your LAN. This makes it idea for locations where the It manager will never agree to open a Port – Doctors surgeries for example. It is also idea for businesses with multiple locations, for example franchise businesses. Storage of the recorded Video is offsite and this feature also provides some key advantages.
