Simplified deployment

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.

Example of Added Value through Integrations

In Sinaloa, Mexico, a statewide security initiative required the ability to integrate with a wide range of software that could provide additional layers to surveillance operations.

License Plate Recognition (LPR) is one example of how this has been implemented. The city of Culiacan has over 800 specialty cameras connected to its LPR system, made by Spain’s Neural Labs. License plates captured by these cameras are matched against a database within the Neural Labs software. If a suspicious vehicle is identified, corresponding video from surveillance cameras can be immediately called up and shared with law enforcement officers within the vicinity. In addition, the LPR video is stored within the Valerus system, where it can be archived alongside surveillance video for evidence when building a criminal case.

Integrations with other applications are also in the works. The use of facial recognition technology is high on the city’s priority list, as are sound sensor systems that can geo-locate the source of gun shots, and more widespread use of panic buttons throughout the community that can automate emergency response procedures and summon assistance from law enforcement.
