    Cloud VMS Configuration: How to configure Cloud Storage

     

    Bosch Cloud VMS allows event-based and continuous cloud recording of connected cameras. This function is independent from storage of alarm/event clips that are part of "Alarm Management".

     

    Please make sure that these pre-conditions are met:

    You have access to a VSaaS/Cloud VMS instance

    The camera that you want to configure for Cloud Storage is connected to the Cloud VMS

    1. Your Bosch camera is connected via the Remote Portal to Cloud VMS
    2. Your 3rd party camera is connected directly with the Cloud VMS

    You have activated the appropriate Cloud Storage license in Remote Portal for the respective camera

     

    Step-by-step guide

     

    1. In Cloud VMS Configuration, configure Recording Mode and Cloud Storage.

    Note: Pre-alarm recording is not available for Bosch and ONVIF cameras.

    Set the right recording mode and the appropriate retention time.

    Standard retention times are 7, 14, 30 days of retention. Exceptions and specific retention times can be offered on request for users of a dedicated VSaaS instance.

    The storage size is fixed and defined by the activated license in the Remote Portal.

    After configuration your cloud camera is all set and you should be able to see video from the camera in the Cloud VMS Live View.

    Note: To set up a Live View service, please follow the article Cloud VMS Configuration: How to set up a Live View service?

     

    2. Video Control/Cloud VMS Live View

     

    You can reach the Live View by logging into your VSaaS instance as an operator.

    The HTML5 Video Control then provides the following functionality for live video and playback of the cloud recording.

    3. Calculating the required storage

     

    On the Bosch Storage Calculator (https://www.boschsecurity.com/storage-calculator/) you need to use the following parameters to calculate the required cloud storage for your Bosch camera:

    1. Select the camera for which you want to calculate the cloud storage
    2. Leave RAID setting empty
    3. Select your prefered retention time (7,14,30 days are available for standard users in Cloud VMS)
    4. Select 'Advanced Configuration' and apply the following detailed template per camera, as default:
      • Sanity Check = 1
      • Audio = ACC
      • Metadata = yes
      • Compression H.264
      • VRM downtime days = 0
      • Include overhead storage = NO
    5. Select the following details as present in your application and camera configuration:
      • Hours/Day (24h = Continuous Recording)
      • Frame Rate
      • Resolution

    In the bottom of the calculator screen you will see the required bandwidth for the uplink and the required storage.

    Choose the right storage license (CBS-REC-....) with a maximum storage allowance higher than the indicated size in the storage calculator from your local pricelist.
