Overview of Valerus hardware components

Valerus covers any security solution and is optimized for your needs. That is why we have ensured that Valerus VMS is factory certified with a variety of surveillance products:


Acting as the main system server, the application server is a Windows service that can run on any of the VMS computers or on dedicated hardware where required. It provides a secure service that manages the VMS database and provides tools to centrally manage the system and also runs the system’s web server.


Handling the critical task of recording video and audio, the high-performance recording server (NVR) is a Windows service providing a secure engine communicating, streaming and recording video and audio from cameras and encoders. The recording servers offer a variety of storage options including internal, external and RAID.


The viewing station is a dedicated, factory certified PC with Valerus software that enables operators to easily find and view video data. A Windows environment ensures that viewing is secure.


A high-capacity recording device that enables you to simultaneously capture, view and store high-quality video and data. It provides scalable, internal redundant array of independent disks (RAID) 5 or 6 for medium and large-scale installations, helping to reduce system ownership costs and deliver more effective security.

Upgrade Protection Plan (UPP)

Valerus allows you to grow as your needs change, giving you peace of mind. The upgrade protection plans allow you to upgrade your tier as more devices or features are needed. Additionally, the plan ensures that systems can be upgraded as new software is release.
