In the present-day context, security has emerged as a matter of utmost significance, particularly for individuals and businesses striving to safeguard their assets and people. While conventional video surveillance systems have long been relied upon, they come with inherent limitations.
Local video storage on the gateway server on the subscriber side allows more efficient use of the outgoing channel due to data buffering. When a video analytics event occurs, the camera or the local gateway server records the video in local memory, which is then transferred to the cloud storage via an available communication channel. For such an event recording mode, the recording speed may be higher than the maximum video data rate. Local storage is also a means of ensuring the fault tolerance of a video surveillance system in the event of a temporary disconnection of the communication channel between the camera (local server) and the cloud application.
