Video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) relates to cloud-based video surveillance that is hosted. Usually, the service includes video recording, storage, remote viewing, warnings for management, and cybersecurity. Video processing and management are carried out off-site using the cloud, although the VSaaS system can have a simple on-site interface that serves as a communication conduit to communicate with the cameras and the cloud. A video surveillance device can capture images and videos that can be compressed, saved, or sent over networks of communication.

VSaaS Market: Market Dynamics
Advancements in Video Analytics and AI Transforming
Within the VSaaS industry, there is a huge increase in demand for cloud-based services from different end-users. The growth can be attributed to various advantages of cloud-based systems, including among others, faster response times and remote monitoring. A development that is expected to continue throughout the forecast period is the adoption of cloud-based services. In the current video surveillance and VSaaS industry, stakeholders are optimistic that more research and technological developments would bring substantial changes to the VSaaS market.
Declining prices of cameras
In VSaaS, at a substantially low cost, video data is handled by service providers. On the cloud, the data is processed. Physical data storage devices and personnel are also not necessary, which decreases the expense of IT hiring by a considerable amount, including wages, benefits, and other related costs. All surveillance-related operations, including recording, monitoring, and maintenance, are handled by service providers, which helps to minimize the costs associated with the personnel needed to monitor the system. Since minimal hardware is used it allows businesses to maximize the cost-effectiveness of the solution, produce better performance, and obtain a better return on investment (RoI). End-users can save hundreds of dollars on equipment and invest the money in additional cameras or other areas of their business by eliminating the cost of buying servers, hard drives, and camera licenses. VSaaS thus lowers the cost of upfront capital.
Privacy and hacking concerns regarding data usage
VSaaS provides information storage in the cloud. A multi-tenant network in which resources are shared is the cloud. It is also an external entity with the ability to access the data of a client. Users have been concerned about who is watching the video and how the video might be used or misused, as individuals expect their personal information to be used for legitimate and unique purposes only. Besides, cloud services are designed to allow users to back up their data in real-time that could be viewed, leaked, or stolen by unauthorized workers, or misused. This might limit the growth of the market for VSaaS.
