When an incident occurs, sharing video with the proper authorities quickly and effectively makes a world of difference. Sharing footage is an essential feature, yet many of today’s video surveillance systems make this valuable feature challenging to do.
Whether you are a security guard that wants to share video with a manager or a construction company that wants to show a time-lapse of the latest project -- Rhombus enables businesses to receive more value from their investment through easy, straightforward video sharing.
One of the most utilized features included with every Rhombus camera is sharing live video feeds. Users can share a live video feed through the Rhombus Console or Mobile App via URL, email, or text message in just a few clicks.
Live video feeds are configurable to be password protected, expire by a specific time, or enable access to review historical events. Recipients do not need console access, ensuring high system security at all times.
Time-lapse videos are useful for seeing large amounts of footage in a short video clip and come standard with all Rhombus cameras. Regardless of your on-camera storage configuration, a time-lapse video can be created as long as the camera has been online. If a camera has been online for two years, you can create a time-lapse of the last two years and condense all that footage into a one-minute clip.
Time-lapse videos are valuable in construction, but they can also serve a variety of industries. For example, you might be a gym owner that wants to share a time-lapse of a workout class you are promoting or a zoo that wants to share how animals interact -- no matter the scenario, you can always create and share a time-lapse with a few quick steps.
Saving and sharing a video clip within Rhombus is a critical feature that many customers use. Video clips can be up to 1 hour in length and kept in the cloud for up to 2 years. To save a video clip, select the timeframe, and hit save. The video is then stored, configured, and shared through a URL, email, or text message. Recipients can easily watch clips on any computer or mobile device without any special software or a Rhombus account.
With Rhombus, sharing video with anyone at any time is incredibly simple and easy. When you invest in a new video surveillance solution, the system should empower your users, not hinder them. Whether you want proactive alerts or want to integrate video security with other best-in-class tools, Rhombus makes managing your physical security simply better.
Among school administrators' many responsibilities, student safety is one of the top priorities. Schools are expected to be prepared for many types of emergencies, and in these situations, it's critical to get accurate and up-to-date information. Modern video security systems are a powerful way to help keep students safe and improve response when it matters most.
Recently, there were published reports that a video security company, Verkada, suffered a security breach. We want to assure everyone that the methods used to compromise Verkada’s devices and infrastructure cannot happen to Rhombus Systems. Security and privacy are intrinsic elements of the Rhombus solution and are designed to protect it against the most sophisticated attacks.
