FLIR Cloud™ services platform for security products
FLIR Systems has introduced FLIR Cloud™, an easy-to-use cloud-enabled service platform that offers instant remote access to FLIR security products using a smartphone / tablet (iOS / Android™), PC, or Mac. FLIR Cloud services carry a range of exciting benefits, not only for the end-user, but for dealers as well.
FLIR Cloud ensures reliable connectivity with a quick and simple 3-step setup process that makes complicated networking and port forwarding a relic of the past. Simply download the free FLIR Cloud mobile app, scan the QR code on the FLIR system, and enter a personalized password. Remote access through FLIR Cloud is achieved using a unique Device ID encoded onto each system. FLIR Cloud servers locate the security system on the Internet using the Device ID and perform a secure handshake between the FLIR system and the viewing device.
Beyond quick connectivity, FLIR Cloud will soon offer a unified set of services to keep users informed of what’s happening at all times, and offers cost-effective solutions for expanding one’s surveillance capabilities. Users can purchase additional Cloud recording storage to complement the hard drive on their recording unit. Other service applications will include cloud video activity synopses and mobile alerts, scheduled backups to offsite cloud servers, smart video analytics, and remote playback of video stored in the cloud.
