How it Works

VosVideo is a simple but powerful camera surveillance system. It provides the fastest possible video processing on the market. It is built on latest Microsoft multimedia innovations, open source and Google WEB RTC technologies.

The main idea was to build a system that can be set up in minutes to keep your eyes on all important things from your PC, smartphone or tablet. It should be very simple to configure and maintain. VosVideo offers a hybrid approach meaning that video processing component is located on user home PC but whole user interface, device and user rights configuration are located on the Internet. Recorded video never leaves your home network as it is saved on your computer that is running video server component. All IP cameras located on the local network are invisible from the Internet which means you cameras are protected from any hacker attacks. At the same time you can setup system to transfer your recorded video to any on line storage (like Google Drive, SkyDrive etc…) to ensure your video archive is protected from local computer data loss. All data broadcasting is encrypted to prevent the unwanted access to your video.

Lets quickly take a look how it works step by step.
