There are two main video surveillance packages integrated and standalone.
Integrate with access control and alarm systems. This allows the other systems to record video clips. It also allows the reviewing of events to be easier because on the timeline you have the door opening, alarm triggering and video recording events cooperatively working together. Versa trying to compile them separately.
Integrated systems usually have a monthly service fee along with continue updates. This is best for users who want integrated functionality and continuous software updates on video analytics.
The biggest advantage to standalone video surveillance systems is no monthly service fee. Users do miss out on software updates and integration features. And not all standalone systems have the video analytic features, but our do. This is best for setup and forget it systems with local storage.
