Video surveillance tech company IC Realtime has launched ICMyCloud, a secure off-site video surveillance storage option for residential and commercial applications.
Compatible with the brand’s lineup of video surveillance cameras and recorders, the service starts at $7.99 per month per channel, with slight up-charges based on options selected. Each channel activation earns the dealer a recurring monthly commission from IC Realtime. The brand is offering end users a free 30-day trial period upon signup.
ICMyCloud is a back-up solution and an alternative to traditional video surveillance recorders. Its large bandwidth capabilities make possible live-streaming in high definition (1080P), as well as two-way talk and night-vision features, and users can monitor via computers and iOS and Android devices. Uses for the storage include home and small business surveillance as well as the increasingly popular baby and pet monitoring.
ICMyCloud is hardware agnostic, therefore single cameras, NVRs, and hybrids can be used. The company plans to release new functionality such as video analytics — ideal for virtual fences, object detection, and people counting—motion alarm alerts and more.
“The user interfaces of the traditional cloud-based storage services on the market are weak because they’re just too difficult to navigate, nor are they security-focused,” said IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor. “We designed ICMyCloud to be intuitive to view live camera feeds, play recorded content, and create video clips and snapshots.”
IC Realtime dealers activate their client’s ICMyCloud plan directly at www.icmycloud.com. Each channel activation earns the dealer a monthly commission.
“IC Realtime is the first to put a revenue share in place on a video surveillance cloud storage solution,” Sailor said. “We did this because it’s important to us that our dealers continue to profit from all the products and services they sell.”
In September, parent company IC Real Tech plans to launch its ALLie dual 360-degree video surveillance camera aimed at the DIY crowd along with a cloud-based storage plan for ALLie.
