Bandwidth, Network, Security
No, none of your video feed goes outside of your premises. Our edge device processes all the video feed in your premises itself. Once our AI algorithm processes the video feed, only binary numbers are uploaded over to our servers which indicates location of the person detected in video feed.
As none of the video feed is uploaded, and only binary data points are uploaded, the network bandwidth usage is very less. Our normal bandwidth usage is around 3kb/sec(Kilobytes) for each camera.
The video feed is not stored anywhere, neither on the edge device, nor on the cloud. It is processed in realtime & deleted on the edge at the location itself.
The Glimpse Architecture ensures multiple security steps to meet the core security and compliance requirements of our customers. All communication happens using the SSL - HTTPS protocol & is 100% encrypted. We use OAuth protocol for authorisation, sessions & access management. Access can be provided per module to each user. All data stored is AES-256 encrypted in the database.
