Looking for cloud services for your Axis cameras? Do you need a solution that will give you secure remote access to your Axis system, allowing you to live view and manage your Axis cameras, and store their footage offsite? Luckily, you’re looking in the right place – Videoloft is an all-in-one cloud based VMS for your Axis camera management.
What you’ll need to connect Axis camera to the cloud
Let’s get started with what you’ll need to connect Axis cameras to the cloud.
Besides the Videoloft mobile app, all you’ll need is a little bridging device called a Cloud Adapter and a Videoloft account with cloud subscription.
Any Axis IP camera will work with Videoloft. The cloud installation process takes a few minutes and can be completed remotely.
It also doesn’t require port forwarding, which many traditional systems do need to allow for remote access. Port forwarding is a security risk, as it essentially means forming a hole in the system, in turn leaving it vulnerable to infiltration.

You may be wondering why you’d choose Videoloft as your cloud provider for your Axis cameras.
In short, Videoloft is so much more than just an Axis cloud storage solution. It is an all-in-one feature-rich cloud VMS system for Axis. It will provide you with secure remote access to your Axis footage as well as allow you to live view Axis cameras, and store video offsite.

You can control your Axis cameras remotely via the Videoloft app by configuring the recording and alerting schedules for specific cameras and/or time periods and setting up camera detection zones.
Finally, Videoloft also continually monitors your Axis system’s health, so you can rest assured your cameras are recording.
Upgrading an Axis cameras using video analytics
Videoloft also allows you to upgrade a basic Axis camera into an intelligent one with video analytics.
Usually, implementing video analytics is very expensive as it requires initial investment into costly equipment. In addition, it also very often means you’ll need an expensive VMS system.
However, Videoloft’s video analytics technology is a game changer! All you need is the Cloud Adapter, which will not only give you secure remote access to your Axis cameras, but also the possibility to use Videoloft’s analytics feature on any Axis camera!
Up to 4K (8MP) video

Cloud traditionally limited the resolution to 1080p. However, Videoloft allows you to record up to 4K (8MP) video direct to the cloud from any Axis camera.
Videoloft for your Axis cloud storage
In summary, besides its varied features and benefits, Videoloft is also a scalable and flexible solution. Not only are its cloud storage plans affordable, but it’s also compatible with a wide range of professional security cameras other than Axis, such as Dahua, Hikvision or Uniview.
