i have been looking everywhere for assistance on the below issue, ill list it in details fo ryour guidance.
we are looking to deploy 16 cameras in 8 different remote branches, there is a WAN connectivity between the branches and a VPN tunnel for interbranch data communication also assume the WAN provider is doing the routing for us, so the branches are all in the same pool, if a VPN is not found for example.
my question is the following: can we install the SMVMS (free software) in the Head quarter where all the branches are linked, and be able to discover and monitor the IP Cameras? moreover, can we have the IP Cameras record the video and audio in their own location, but stream the live video to the HQ?
is there a need for the AVMS here or this can be done with SMVMS?
finally, if we have more than 16 cameras, lets say 32 cameras in all remote locations, can we instal 2 instances of the SMVMS on different PCs and point each to seperate 16 cameras, thus removeing the need to upgrade to the Basic or Advanced software?
thank you in advance
