ADT Unveils New Cloud Storage Solutions, Expands Video Surveillance Capabilities

Leading security provider ADT (NYSE: ADT) today announced the expansion of its video surveillance portfolio with new cloud-based and local DVR (digital video recorder) storage offerings designed to meet the needs of America’s small business owners. ADT’s extended video offerings give small business owners the flexibility to keep tabs on their most critical assets, store their video footage on-premise or in the cloud, scale their investment level up or down over time, and have a better understanding of their overall business operations.

According to a recent study, the market for cloud services continues to grow rapidly. The number of small businesses using a paid cloud solution in some capacity is predicted to triple in the next three years.1 With ADT’s secure cloud video solutions, owners have the flexibility to track everyday business activities, manage multiple locations simultaneously, and take advantage of event-triggered notifications with cloud-based video access from any Internet-connected device, including smartphones and tablets. ADT’s cloud-based video surveillance service also has multi-screen viewing capabilities to track employees, while also providing enhanced visibility over inventory and sensitive business and customer data.

“ADT’s introduction of video surveillance as a service with powerful, secure cloud technology provides small business owners with greater business control through unlimited, continuous video recording and storage,” said Luis Orbegoso, President of ADT Small Business. “In addition to cloud-based solutions, our diverse video portfolio is designed to meet the unique needs of each and every one of our customers – from the restaurateur to the salon owner.”

ADT Cloud Storage Solutions

ADT’s cloud-based solutions are ideal for small business owners whom, for example, are in an office suite environment where security needs may be addressed by building management. These customers could benefit from added visibility with minimal IT support required and a significantly lower up-front cost with Broadband-enabled cameras. The new cloud solutions can also help increase audit capabilities with motion-triggered video storage and alerts, as well as archived video playback for incident investigations.

Additionally, the new solution provides greater insight into daily business activities through cloud-based video surveillance from any web-enabled device. The seamless user interface has an advanced search functionality to provide live video views or recorded video in one centrally managed account. With multiple options to choose from, small business owners have control over their investment level with 15 or 30 days video storage options.

ADT Onsite Storage Solutions

ADT’s Onsite Storage Solutions meet the demand for on-premise video storage to monitor employee and customer interactions, help prevent crime and deter theft, especially in retail and food and beverage environments. With a local DVR, small business owners can digitally record video clips via cameras in multiple areas of the business, from the stockroom to the front door, and access the clips for playback at a later time.

Additionally, event-triggered activity alerts can be programmed, and owners can access a video history of video-captured activities through smart search functions on their DVR devices at any time. The intelligent search features of ADT’s Onsite Storage Solutions allow owners to access date and time-stamped videos for a complete history of activities and to ensure employees are adhering to safety practices while also increasing loss prevention.
