Connecting Security Cameras Through a VPN

Camera management, ease of setup and cybersecurity. These are three features needed for a modern cloud video surveillance system. Using a VPN to connect to your security cameras will help with all three of those features. 
“One of the many ways you can connect to the VXG Cloud is by a VPN. A VPN is one of our clients’ ideal setups,” says Yaro Lisitsyn, CEO of VXG. “We have thousands of cameras streaming through our cloud via a VPN daily.” 
Let’s dive more into detail about how beneficial using a VPN can be. For starters, connecting cameras to the cloud is not always easy. It requires an embedded plugin on the camera, port forwarding on the network or an on-prem device to act as a gateway to the cloud. With a VPN, you can access any IP camera using a direct VPN IP address. There is no need for a plugin, port forwarding or an on-prem device. 
Utilizing a VPN can also allow you to connect to multiple locations. Say you have a number of restaurants or stores, you can use one VPN to connect to all cameras across all locations. 
Lastly, when using VXG and a VPN, VXG users can watch live and recorded video through the cloud. VPN credentials don’t need to be shared with anyone; users only need to set up access rights to VXG. This gives an extra security layer. 
Cloud Video Surveillance is a booming industry with an expected market value of $52.98 billion in 2026, up from the $18.51 billion in 2018. Utilizing open platforms like VXG and tools like a VPN should help expedite the growth in this industry.
