Are you searching for a way to add cloud storage to your Vivotek CCTV installation? Need offsite backup for your Vivotek NVR or DVR? Want to protect against recorder theft and add a secure remote backup solution?
You’re in the right place – Videoloft is a secure, offsite cloud VMS compatible with your Vivotek CCTV system. It’ll answer all of your security needs and also allow you to watch your Vivotek camera live feeds and recorded video remotely via a mobile app or web app.
What you’ll need to set up Vivotek cloud recording
So what do you need to get your Vivotek cloud app up and running? The answer is simple, just the Videoloft mobile app, available on iPhone and Android, and a small bridging device called the Videoloft Cloud Adapter.
Videoloft is compatible with any Vivotek IP camera, NVR or DVR. The Vivotek cloud storage setup process only takes a couple of minutes, and is all done from the Videoloft mobile app.
Why do I need Vivotek cloud storage? And which is the best app for viewing Vivotek cameras?
Are you thinking that you already have Vivotek cloud because you use the VIVOCloud app? The answer to this question is an important one.
Vivotek’s VIVOCloud app is essentially cloud management of your Vivotek CCTV system. This means you can view your cameras remotely via the VIVOCloud app, and control their settings but the video is stored locally either on SD cards or local NVRs or DVRs. If this local video storage is stolen, damaged or malfunctions, then your important video evidence is lost.
So what’s different about Videoloft’s Vivotek cloud? Crucially, the recorded video itself is stored to Videoloft’s offsite cloud. So you get remote backup of the video stored on your local Vivotek NVR or DVR, or you can replace the recorder completely and just record straight to the cloud. And you get all the same remote viewing and camera control that you have through the VIVOCloud app.
Why use Videoloft for your Vivotek cloud storage?
There are many reasons why Videoloft is a great solution for your Vivotek cloud CCTV needs. In brief, it’s an all-in-one VMS solution that puts your Vivotek CCTV system in your hands and enhances it with new features.
Let’s dive into some of these features in more detail…
Vivotek cloud recorded video at up to 8MP/4K resolution
Gone are the days where recording to the cloud meant you needed to compromise on resolution! You used to still need an onsite recorder to store higher resolution video locally, but that is no longer the case.
With Videoloft you can record to the cloud at up to 8MP/4K directly from any Vivotek camera, or alongside a Vivotek NVR or DVR.
Secure offsite backup of Vivotek CCTV footage
Perhaps you want to move all video storage straight to the cloud and say good riddance to the local recorder completely? That might be due to your own requirements, regulatory requirements in your industry, or the needs of your insurer.
Or do you want to record video locally and also add Vivotek cloud backup?
Whatever your use case, Videoloft gives you a secure Vivotek cloud solution. All video stored to the Videoloft cloud is encrypted and there are stringent security policies in place throughout the platform.
Videoloft will also continually monitor the health of your Vivotek CCTV system, so if your cameras stop recording you’ll be alerted in real time.
Multi-user remote viewing of cameras from any number of locations
Unlike through the VIVOCloud app, with Videoloft there are no limits to the number of cameras or locations you can view, or how many users can view them.
Any number of users can access live streams and recorded video events from as many locations as necessary. It also doesn’t matter how many users want to view a single camera at the same time!
You can give other users read-only or full admin access to your Vivotek cloud cameras depending on your requirements.
Remote control of Vivotek cameras through the mobile camera app
Through the Videoloft app you can remotely control your Vivotek cloud cameras from anywhere.
Set up schedules for recording or motion alerting. Or configure settings like resolution and sensitivity, or enable detection zones.
You can even remotely control your PTZ cameras or speak to intruders through two-way-audio enabled cameras.
Multiple viewing options
Videoloft isn’t just a mobile app for Vivotek cameras! Yes it’s a Vivotek android app, and a Vivotek iOS app, but it’s also a Vivotek web app which you can use to view your cameras through a web-browser.
Upgrade a legacy Vivotek CCTV system with sophisticated features
Finally, using Videoloft as your Vivotek cloud solution allows you to upgrade legacy systems without buying new and expensive cameras.
Additional functionality such as Timelapse suddenly become possible with your existing hardware!
