Cloud VMS provides visualization of remote substation sites on any device


Cloud VMS, a new video management software tool announced by Systems With Intelligence, gives users the ability to view their remote substation sites and assets from anywhere, on any device.

Leveraging the power and accessibility of the cloud, this tool provides users with a 24/7 secure connection to live video feeds from any of their remote locations.

Cloud VMS includes built-in analytics that analyze real-time video to detect unauthorized location access and provide instant alerts to the control center and operations team. Machine learning algorithms continuously process data to detect and classify objects to avoid unnecessary alarms.

“Today’s utility workers are mobile and stretched to capacity. They don’t have the time, staff, or ability to physically monitor all of their remote sites,” said Angelo Rizzo, president and CEO of Systems With Intelligence. “With Cloud VMS, the monitoring is done for them, and they are notified if their attention is needed. They can log in with their mobile devices and see exactly what’s going on at a remote site, wherever they are.

Cloud VMS is a pure cloud-based video surveillance and analytics platform, running on a modern, redundant cloud architecture through an HTML5 web interface with full mobile apps supporting Android and IOS.

Machine learning systems constantly recycle and evolve object classification algorithms in real time based on all enabled sequences, locations, and conditions. Rules-based cloud analysis allows users to detect, track and classify objects such as cars, people, animals and any other of the 110 available categories.

Cloud VMS is hosted on AWS S3 for redundancy and data security, but can also be deployed on a private cloud. The deployment of pure cloud surveillance is scalable and flexible, as additional cameras can be easily added to the system when expansion is needed.

Built-in cloud analytics allows users to define fully custom, rule-based features with subsequent custom alerts for email or app push notifications during a set schedule for certain users.

“Utilities are part of our critical infrastructure and need to be constantly aware of what is happening at their remote sites,” Rizzo added. “It’s not just to protect utility workers and the public from physical harm and ensure the reliable supply of electricity that is essential to sustaining our well-being.

Protection of our critical infrastructure is federally mandated and utilities need a way to manage remote monitoring efficiently and cost effectively.
