Firstly, users arent restricted from accessing the video archive for any of their cameras, as archives are stored locally on their computer. This ensures uninterrupted access even if theres an internet outage. Secondly, video analytics occur locally using SmartVision software, eliminating the need for additional payment for cloud-based processing. Thirdly, the system introduces substantial storage savings both on local drives and in the cloud by using artificial intelligence technologies to reduce frames per second when no motion is detected in the feed.
To illustrate, conventional systems would require about 3.2 Tb of disk space for a continuous six-month archive from a single 1080p IP camera. Multiply this by the number of cameras in use, and the hard drive costs-operating 24/7-become quite significant. Furthermore, these systems also necessitate considerations for data backup and mirroring. With SmartVision , the utilization of object detection based on neural networks and time-lapse recording can reduce hard drive stress and decrease the video archive size by hundreds of times.
