How to Record a Time Lapse: A Step-by-Step Guide
One of the most significant challenges faced by video surveillance systems is the storage of videos. Large amounts of data are generated every day, and storing this data can be costly and time-consuming. One way to increase the storage time of videos is to use time-lapse recording. This feature enables the software to capture images at specific intervals and then combine them into a video. Time-lapse recording
can significantly reduce the amount of data stored on the disk, making it easier to manage and analyze.
Many surveillance systems now incorporate cloud storage solutions. While cloud-based services offer many advantages, they also come with their own set of challenges. These include potential data loss during poor internet connectivity, bandwidth limitations set by internet providers, false alarms, high costs per camera, and limited video data retention periods.
Using a combination of SmartVision and the Video Surveillance Cloud service can address these challenges. While SmartVision manages local recordings and analytics, Video Surveillance Cloud can be an additional layer for cloud storage, ensuring users get the best of both worlds.
