Benefits of video surveillance-as-a-service (VSaaS)


A VSaaSsystem is very flexible to your business needs. Most VSaaS providers offer multiple plans to choose from, and you can choose one that suits you. Top VSaaS companies can also customize a solution and work with you to set up something that is specific to your situation. These services can also be quite budget-friendly. Some provide pay-as-you-go options, which might be more expensive than a long-term agreement, but it allows you to test the service without committing to a few months’ worth of subscription.

Cloud-based storage

As a VSaaS solution is cloud-based, your security team can log in from anywhere and view footage on-demand, including on weekends or holidays, when foot traffic is light, but premises still need to be monitored.

Easy retrieval and sharing of footage

The VSaaS software provided by vendors often allows you to search by specific keywords such as “Service Entrance” or by date and time stamp. You can decide what to do once footage gets old, though this might be dictated in part by the plan you choose.

Disadvantages of using a VSaaS

While there are major perks to going with VSaaS based surveillance for your business, there are certain disadvantages to it too. Because VSaaS involves video, it relies heavily on a good internet connection. While this may not be an issue in many Tier I and Tier II cities, you must be aware of this at the outset.
