Simplified Deployment

Valerus has been designed to offer the easiest possible installation, configuration and licensing.


Our thin client architecture makes Valerus software accessible via a browser interface, eliminating the need to install custom software at each workstation.  And, we make the most current version of Valerus software available to all our customers, without purchase of a protection plan.  (protection plans unlock access to new features.)


Automated discovery and programming tools make quick work of basic system setup.  The system auto-discovers all ONVIF cameras and recorders, logically assigns cameras to recording servers, and applies standard recording parameters system-wide.


Valerus employs one global activation key for the entire system.  This saves time, and eliminates frustrations, during initial deployment, but also during system expansion, upgrades and maintenance.

Simplified Operation

Valerus’ intuitive interface and simple tools make it easy to manage and operate all system features.

Health Dashboard:

Quickly see a health status snapshot of all system components.  For faulty devices, the dashboard provides a description of the problem.


Valerus’ flexible interface allows you to group together related resources however you like, making it easy to quickly access and manage them through the on-screen menu.


Pre-set your favorite views of specific cameras for easy call-up.  Display any news, feed, weather or third party interface right within the Valerus interface.  And, take advantage of our free integration with VAX Access Control, allowing for a seamless, single platform of operation.
