What is a Video Management System?
The security of your business is essential for maintaining profitability and ongoing business operations, so it’s important to put in place the best possible security systems.
An essential component of any quality security surveillance systems is the Video Management System or VMS as it’s commonly known. The role of the VMS is to act as central point for managing mostly cameras but also other devices in your surveillance network.
