Case study: Guns of Distinction

Transitioning to Cloud Storage for Compliance in a California Gun Store

The requirement

In response to evolving legislative mandates, Guns of Distinction – a firearms dealer in California faced a new legal requirement to retain surveillance footage for a minimum of one year.

Previously, the gun store used a Dahua NVR to record and store video locally, however, compliance with the new law necessitated continuous recording and extended storage, posing a significant financial burden.

Guns of Distinction sought an affordable, efficient solution to meet these regulatory demands without compromising operational integrity.

Customer testimonial

“We were getting quotes of well over $10,000 just for the hardware and a small fortune for cloud storage. I found Videoloft on an internet search, called them and spoke to a well informed staff member at Videoloft, who answered my questions and walked me through the transaction. A week later I received the Adapter and my own tech plugged in it and we were up and running. I could not be happier with Videoloft. They solved my problem and saved me a fortune!!”
