Keep track of your video security systems at any time

In recent years, video surveillance projects have become larger and more complex, demanding more resources and increasing operational costs. Modifying the configuration of multiple sites is time consuming and monitoring the health status of all servers and cameras across every location is a challenge. As a consequence, organizations frequently overspend on technical expertise and unnecessary licenses, as well as potentially expose themselves to regulatory risks.

Umbrella enables the configuration, management and monitoring of all connected Qognify VMS systems across multiple sites. This innovative platform uses state-of-the-art web technology and can be hosted in the cloud as well as on-premises. Umbrella provides a consolidated view of all entities (servers, cameras) across all connected installations, highlighting those that require attention. And, changes in configuration can be made centrally and rolled out to several or all connected installations.
