Learn how one busy police officer looked to an off-premise cloud video security solution, resulting in more significant cost savings and security than a traditional system could offer.

The Client

Five years ago, Ronald, a police officer in West Virginia, purchased a surveillance system for his home. Working overtime so often motivated him to buy an on-premise security system that would allow him to view live footage of his property and pets even while he was at work.


The Challenge

While his on-premise security system provided the basics like 24/7 surveillance, he didn’t anticipate how expensive the upkeep would be. Two failed hard drives in a few year’s time cost him over a thousand dollars in replacement fees. 

The Solution

After getting a recommendation from a fellow police officer, Ronald chose a Cloud Video Security system for two main reasons:

  • Powerful mobile app. Ronald wanted to be able to access his security system at any time from anywhere easily. The mobile app allows him to watch live or recorded video from any mobile device and is super intuitive. He had four cloud-enabled cameras added to every critical area of his home.
  • No on-premise equipment. Replacing an on-premise system with Cloud security led to immediate savings. Because he no longer has to worry about failed hard drives, he’s automatically putting money back in his pocket. Since it’s all tied into a monthly subscription, he never again has to factor in hidden or unexpected costs.

The Outcome

With his cloud security system now in place, Ronald now has a fully secure and super reliable video surveillance system. If an intruder enters his property, he’s able to capture trespasser activity and get instant alerts on his smartphone.

Without on-premise equipment to manage, fix, or repair, Ronald now has the peace of mind that his system is always on and always recording.
