A high-performance cloud platform for use with Axis camera and access control hardware
Morphean is a leading Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) provider with strong integrations into Axis IP camera and access control hardware at its core. Using Axis-specific technologies, the Morphean Cloud platform ensures one-click set up between camera and its cloud platform as well as the highest level of cybersecurity possible today.
A further key benefit of this deep Morphean-Axis integration is that Axis cameras directly connect to Morphean’s Cloud servers without the need for any additional hardware on-site, plus most of the Axis camera specific features and benefits are largely maintained. This is different from most other VSaaS systems, which require an additional hardware device on-premise for cameras to connect to their cloud platform, plus those systems often suffer from losing camera features as a result of a generic integration as opposed to a deep system integration. For these reasons we use Morphean Cloud in combination with Axis network cameras as the core of our RemoteManager service offering, and recommend Morphean to any customers with an Axis camera estate not wanting to lose their Axis cameras’ rich feature set.
The Morphean platform uses the highest levels of security in enterprise-level data centres and encrypted links between cameras and servers. Any data you choose to store locally on a camera SD card or Network Attached Storage (NAS) device is all encrypted. This means even if a camera is stolen, the data is protected.
The number of cameras and optional services can be changed to meet your requirements as your system grows, offering solid investment protection.
The size of your system is only really limited by your internet connection. Factors such as location, lighting conditions and levels of activity all need to be considered because they have an impact on the bandwidth used. Fortunately, our expertise in system design and engineering means we can ensure the optimum number of cameras are specified to meet your security requirements and that they’re installed and configured correctly.
Other than the purchase of your IP cameras and licences for any required analytics apps, there is no investment required for recording and storage hardware, or a VMS. Instead, a small, recurring monthly fee means the total cost of ownership is far less than a traditional CCTV system.
The Morphean product range comprises:
- Hosted video surveillance with remote access via the web and mobile apps
- Optional add-on services including video analytics and online storage
