Isolate events with Vision by SYNO Global cloud managed cameras

Smart Event Isolation

Our cameras use intelligent motion search to quickly find important segments of video amongst hours of recordings. Optimized to eliminate noise and false positives, this allows users to retrospectively zero-in on relevant events with minimal effort.

 

Vision’s motion indexing offers an intuitive search interface. Select the elements of the scene that are of interest and dashboard will retrieve all of the activity that occurred in that area. Laptop go missing? Drag the mouse over where it was last seen and quickly find out when it happened and who was responsible.

Analytics Built In

With an industry-leading processor onboard every Vision12 camera, advanced analytics, including computer vision and machine learning are now easy, scalable, and cost effective to implement. Vision12 can detect what’s a person—and what’s not—to enable features like people counting over time. You’ll gain valuable insights into facility foot traffic and your resident’s behaviour patterns with a single security camera solution—no servers, special software, or dedicated cameras required.

Analytics are builtin to each MV camera range.
Each camera can optimise recording retention.

Optimised Retention

Vision by SYNO Global camera’s take a unique approach to handling motion data by analysing video on the camera itself, but indexing motion in the cloud. This hybrid motion-based retention strategy plus scheduled recording give users the ability to define the video retention method that works best for every deployment.

All cameras retain continuous footage as a safety net for the last 72 hours before intelligently trimming stored video that contains no motion. Determine when cameras are recording, and when they’re not, with scheduled recording. Create schedule templates for groups of cameras and store only what’s needed, nothing more. Turn off recording altogether and only view live footage for selective privacy.

Where is the recorded video stored?

The video is stored inside the camera on solid state and encrypted storage.

How much footage can I store?

VISION cameras come in 128GB and 256GB storage options. Storage time will vary based on video quality and retention settings. 30 days worth of footage is easily achievable.

What if I need longer than 20 days worth of video recording?

When set to 24/7 recording, VISION cameras have a limit of 20 days of storage; however, the Meraki dashboard provides a set of optimized retention tools for all models of VISION cameras, which can extend retention well beyond 20 days. With motion-based retention enabled, cameras will record the most recent three days in their entirety as a precaution; after that, cameras will intelligently trim out and discard segments of video which contain no motion. Depending on the recording environment and the amount of motion seen by each camera, customers may see beyond 90 days of retention in some cases. Schedules can also be set, which will affect the retention period accordingly. The dashboard provides a real time read out for each camera of expected retention based on real data from that camera averaged over the last week.

Is my video stored in the cloud?

Standard streaming video is not stored in the cloud, but exported video clips are stored in the cloud for 30 days. Metadata for video thumbnails and motion indexing are also stored in the cloud. Video will proxy through the cloud in the event of remote streaming and is cached in order to retrieve footage more quickly, but during standard recording operations, VISION cameras will only save video locally on encrypted storage.

Can I choose to backup my video in the cloud?

Yes, cloud storage licenses are available to extend recorded video beyond the camera.

What resolution do these cameras record in?

1080p HD video recording (1920×1080) with H.264 encoding, up to 20fps.

What is the frame rate? The bitrate?

VISION camera users can choose to record in either Standard Quality (8fps / 530kbps) to store 20 days of footage or Enhanced Quality (15fps / 765kbps) in deployments where it’s necessary to capture quickly moving objects. Enhanced Quality recording will reduce storage capacity to about 14 days of 24/7 recording. With optimized retention settings, these retention periods can be greatly extended.

What happens if somebody steals my camera? What if it’s damaged or there’s a fire?

As with all security camera systems, care should be taken during installation to ensure cameras are out of reach of potential thieves or vandals. If cameras are taken, video footage from that camera will be lost unless the culprit plugs it back into a network connection, at which point footage will become retrievable again. If there’s concern about vandalism, the VISION72 is recommended, as it is IK10+ rated for impact resistance in addition to its IP66 weather resistance rating.

Like most other systems, in the event of a fire, if cameras become damaged to the point of inoperability, footage will be lost.

All security camera systems carry some amount of risk, but unlike a deployment with a recording device, there is no single point of vulnerability in any VISION deployment since each camera stores its own video.

Is stored video encrypted on the camera?

Yes, VISION features full disk encryption. Additionally, cameras automatically purchase and provision their own publicly-signed SSL certificates upon initial boot up. Management data is encrypted as well. All encryption is turned on by default, and cannot be turned off.

What if a camera loses access to the network?

VISION cameras will continue to record, even if they lose access to the network, as long as they have power. When network is restored, and if a cloud achieve license is purchased the camera will upload recorded footage.

What will happen if the camera loses power?

Cameras will not operate without power. A switch with redundant power supplies is recommended if there is a concern about power loss.

Is there any way to back video up onto an NVR, DVR, NAS, or other centralized storage device?

No. The VISION is designed to operate without an external recording solution. It will not work with an NVR, DVR, or NAS. Video cannot be automatically exported to these solutions.

What if my bandwidth is limited?

The Meraki dashboard will intelligently determine if the viewing computer is in the same local network as the cameras. If this is the case, video traffic will stream directly over the LAN, saving WAN bandwidth. If video is viewed remotely, the dashboard will proxy it through the cloud. It’s recommended that customers with limited WAN bandwidth planning on doing frequent remote viewing should select the Standard Quality video setting.

What CODECs does the VISION cameras support?

H.264

When I export video clips, what format are they exported in?

Video clips are exported as MP4 encoded with H.264.

Can the memory on my camera be upgraded or replaced?

No, the solid state memory on these cameras cannot be removed, upgraded or replaced.

Are these cameras PTZ capable?

No. VISION22 and VISION72 are fixed varifocal dome cameras, so zoom, focus, and aperture settings can be adjusted remotely through the dashboard, but lens angle and positioning must be adjusted during installation.

VISION12 cameras use a completely fixed lens with autofocus.

Does VISION offer analytics capabilities?

VISION’s powerful motion search plus motion heat maps capability comes standard with all VISION hardware plus a license.

VISION cameras feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, enabling machine-learning-based computer vision, including detecting people as objects.

Are these cameras wireless?

VISION cameras can be used with standard Ethernet via PoE, but they also feature 802.11ac wireless connectivity.

We can also provide power over ethernet injectors for users who do not have a PoE enabled switch available and want to connect via wifi.

Can you zoom in on historical footage?

Video clips are exported in standard MP4 format, so it is possible to use the zoom feature in standard video players during playback.

Can I view a live camera feed from my mobile device?

Yes, using the Cisco Meraki Android or iPhone application you can connect to any camera and retrieve a live stream. You do not have to be connected to the local area connection as the application will determine the best path to the camera based on your connection (eg local area network or mobile network). Depending on your connection, the camera will automatically determine the best streaming bitrate and quality to ensure a smooth experience.

What is the focal length on the varifocal camera range?

3-9mm focal length with f/1.2-2.3 aperture. Field of view includes;

Horizontal 36° – 112°
Vertical 20° – 57°
Diagonal 42° – 138°

Lens adjustment range:

Tilt: 65°
Rotation: +/- 90°
Pan: 354°

1/30s to 1/32,000s shutter speed

Do the cameras include built-in IR illumination?

Yes, VISION cameras include built-in IR illuminators, effective up to 30m (98ft). Minimum illumination 0.18 Lux (standard recording) and 0.01 Lux (night mode)

Can the cameras record audio?

Yes, VISION cameras include in-built microphones to record audio. SYNO Global recommends you consult with legal professionals to ensure you meet privacy obligations.

What security is built into each VISION camera?

Full disk encryption (AES 256-bit) with automatically purchased and provisioned TLS certificates (publicly-signed). Management encryption and two-factor authentication is available for login.

Are CCTV cameras effective?

Yes, they help to provide additional layers of safety whilst allowing events to be captured and reviewed for legal purposes.

Which CCTV camera solution is the best?

There are so many different types of CCTV solutions available. SYNO Global believes in simplified technologies that provide a plethora of features that are both innovative and cost-effective whilst providing true return on investment.

Can CCTV cameras be used to monitor staff?

Every organisation is different in respect to workflow policies. Depending on the environment and requirements will often determine if staff are monitored or not. It is important to note however in Aged Care environments that staff and resident monitoring actually helps improve safety and care whilst supporting staff workflow. SYNO Global recommends to consult with relevant industry professionals to ensure legal obligations are met.

Will CCTV cameras work without an internet connection?

Yes, because footage is stored internally and the latest configuration settings are saved to each camera. When a user attempts to retrieve footage or view cameras in real time, an active internet connection is required to access the camera from the cloud managed dashboard.

Where are CCTV cameras used?

Each organisation will have a different use case for camera placement. In most cases, cameras are positioned to protect assets of value, improve safety of personnel or secure areas of interest such as corridors or low traffic regions.

Can SYNO Global help with me scoping a surveillance solution?
