Do you want to be able to instantly suppress theft, disorder and fraud in your enterprise? You cannot do this without a cloud video monitoring service for restaurants.

      2. Trade enterprises (shops), warehouses and delivery areas.

The system provides remote intelligent online monitoring capabilities and convenient viewing of archived video recordings, as well as provides access to various analytics. Face recognition, the system of white- and blacklists, counting visitors and many other possibilities. More details on the website.

      3. Offices and organizations.

Ensuring safety, combined with work order automation, powerfully impact your employees’s motivation. Now you do not need to be personally present in the office to control the behavior of personnel. This work is easily performed by a remote assistant – a cloud video monitoring service, which can be operated even through an old smartphone.
