FAQs - Cloud video surveillance for schools

Our school uses a mixture of different camera brands, can you integrate with them all?

Many educational establishments use a variety of camera brands, especially as new buildings and classrooms open up. Videoloft can centralise all this footage into one unified platform and is compatible with a wide range of leading camera and recorder brands, including Hikvision, Uniview, Dahua, Vivotek and more. View our compatibility list here.

Can we have separate logins for different users?

Yes! Videoloft supports multi-user access and permissions. You can choose which cameras different people have access to and what level of access they have – from read-only to full admin rights. The choice is yours.

Can I view the camera feeds on a local monitor or display?

Yes, connecting the Videoloft Cloud Adapter to a monitor via a micro HDMI cable will allow security personnel to watch live camera feeds, ensuring they can respond quickly to any issues. Moreover, there will be no latency and no network bandwidth being used as you’ll be watching the live feeds over the local network, rather than via the Videoloft Cloud.

Our school insurance policy states we need to store footage for 6 months, is this possible?

Yes, we’re really flexible and can offer a variety of storage plans from 30 days right up to 5 years! We can also create bespoke storage plans depending on your exact requirements.
