Hikvision and Smartvue Develop Joint Camera-to-Cloud Solution
Hikvision has announced a collaboration with Smartvue Corporation, an enterprise cloud software company whose solutions combine cost-effective edge devices with cloud storage and video management.
Smartvue and Hikvision will provide a cloud-based video surveillance service and camera-to-cloud solution for small, medium, and enterprise organizations in the U.S. and Canadian markets.

Smartvue’s state of the art technology gives users access to video surveillance and storage from any smartphone, tablet, or web browser, which means they can log in remotely to view live or recorded video from anywhere in the world. The management tools allow for alerts when an alarm has been triggered, enabling motion detection, setting recording schedules, and storing and accessing surveillance data securely in the cloud, among other features.
The result is a powerful, user-friendly cloud video surveillance that’s highly scalable. The video capture component of the solution is supported by Hikvision’s IP camera lineup, which boasts award-winning WDR technology along with cutting-edge video intelligence algorithms and low bandwidth.
"As the video surveillance industry grows, demand increases for a surveillance platform that can be centrally managed from up to thousands of locations,” said Martin Renkis, founder and CEO of Smartvue Corporation.
“With over a decade of experience and with its robust Video Platform as a Service (VPaaS), Smartvue is exceptionally qualified to deliver this solution.”
The industry agrees: Smartvue received the Maximum Impact Award for cloud surveillance at the Electronic Security Expo in June 2014, as well as Security Products Magazine’s 2014 Product of the Year Award for Best Cloud Video Surveillance Solution.
Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA, explained the strategy behind building Hikvision’s reputation as an industry leader. “As our technology leadership in the North American marketplace grows stronger, it’s important to choose technology partners whose products complement our own high standards for quality solutions in the security industry. We are very excited to work with Smartvue.”
