Monitoring and security costs reduction with Xeoma
Nowadays, video surveillance and security systems are not an option, but a necessity. CCTV systems become more and more popular each day and play a significant role in providing a safer environment in our fast-paced world. Monitoring systems have become a common thing in the everyday life, with that said you can choose any variant of video surveillance system on the market suitable for your budget and requirements. In this article, we will review different ways on how to reduce costs of creating a monitoring and security system based on Xeoma.
1. Automation of processes.
By means of Xeoma, you can create an automation solution for various cases to make your business more cost-effective. For example, you can use integration with gate barriers to open them upon recognizing a vehicle’s license plate from the white list. Or, with Xeoma’s AI-powered “Face recognition” entrance gates can open automatically for the authorized visitors or employees. Also, Xeoma offers a “Face ID”, smart card reader and QR code recognition solution to make the entrance gate open automatically using double authentication. This functionality will be perfect for the area with strict access rules providing higher security monitoring.
Through the use of Xeoma you can significantly reduce entrance control cost by eliminating the employment of staff and automating the process of the entrance access. Xeoma video surveillance will help not only automate the process of passing through the checkpoint, but also become a tireless assistant that monitors the area 24/7.
2. Various versions for any budget.
Xeoma includes a variety of editions for a project of any scale and budget. You can choose any mode suitable for your case. For example, Xeoma Starter mode allows connecting unlimited amount of cameras for live view for a price of a cup of coffee.
Also, Xeoma’s licensing model is very flexible. You can purchase any suitable edition for your project, for instance Xeoma Standard. And if you need particular intellectual Pro modules or additional AI-based modules, you can purchase them additionally to your current license. Xeoma Standard and Pro licenses summarize, so there’s no need to a purchase Pro license for all cameras – you can combine them making the price of the whole project more budget-friendly.
And as a bonus, our friendly tech support is free of charge and available at any time, alongside free demo licenses and detailed instructions and manuals.
3. Perpetual licenses and unlimited amount of servers.
Xeoma licenses are perpetual and can be used on your devices forever. Renewal licenses are optional and can be purchased with significant discount. Xeoma Lite, Standard and Pro modes allow adding more cameras in the future, therefore you can expand your video surveillance system anytime without the need to purchase a new license.
Sometimes stacking all cameras onto a single server would mean that a super computer is needed to process them all, even more so if any AI features are required apart from regular monitoring and security duties. Such powerful computers might be hard to get, and quite expensive. At some point, when it comes to a more powerful machine, the price for such devices rises exponentially. It is easier and cheaper quite frequently to purchase and use several smaller off-the-shelf computers instead, and spread the cameras across them. But is it as convenient as having all cameras gathered in 1 server? With Xeoma – the answer is yes.
Xeoma video software can be used on the unlimited amount of servers, unlike many other apps. So you can purchase Xeoma licenses for multiple servers and combine them in the multiserver mode to review all cameras or only particular servers at once. Even more than that, only the Server part of Xeoma needs licensing, Xeoma Clients are free of charge, and you can use as many of them as you want.
4. Cheaper with microPCs.
Xeoma is cross-platform software and can be installed on any popular operating system, including Linux for ARM-based devices. This way you can use Xeoma on a microPC such as Raspberry Pi, Banana and Orange Pi, Odroid and so on. Such devices significantly reduce CCTV project pricing due to their capability to handle a decent amount of cameras and flexibility in terms of installation in various conditions because of their small size.
Many projects such as “Safe city” often use these off-the-shelf solutions because single-board computers can be mounted almost anywhere, e.g. on a pole or inside a gate barrier. And their prices are much more profitable than the price of a powerful server.
5. 99% supported camera brands.
Xeoma supports 99% of all cameras on the market, making the software extremely multifunctional and flexible. It is much easier to create a CCTV system using Xeoma because it can use the cameras that are already at hand. And the process of adding cameras in Xeoma is as simple as launching a computer. You can conduct a simple search for local cameras in Xeoma via “+” menu, so that the software could find all cameras in the local network within a few seconds.
You can choose any cameras for your budget and connect them in Xeoma. Thus, the price of the video surveillance project can be reduced significantly, so you can enjoy an even more prefect monitoring system.
