What's IVaas technology?

Hikvision’s IVaaS Technology links previously separated CCTV and intrusion alarm systems together in one platform, sending a 7-second video clip via email or app in the event of an alarm for timely confirmation – 5 seconds of footage pre-alarm, and 2 seconds post-alarm. The technology enables extracting live video streams directly from the alarm control panel, with which cameras are connected.

What's the benefits?

Removing the Guessing Game

Traditional intrusion alarm systems don’t have a verification process. Alarms can be triggered by causes other than actual intruders. Responding to these false alarms can place a huge burden on home or business owners. And, due to high false alarm rates, law enforcement officers simply cannot prioritize timely responses. Through a verification process, Hikvision’s IVaaS Technology removes the guessing game in determining what caused an intrusion.



Providing Video as Evidence

Many alarm verification solutions on the market rely on low-quality static imagery or video feeds to confirm alarms. These, however, provide little detail when it’s needed. Hikvision’s IVaaS Technology provides high-quality video clips as forensic evidence, making it easier to apprehend a suspected intruder and recover losses.


Storing Recorded Video Safely

Intruders tend to damage cameras and detection equipment to disable CCTV and alarm systems, eliminating any available evidence. By installing a discreet alarm control panel, Hikvision’s IVaaS Technology becomes vandal-proof. Even if the intruder damages the intrusion detector, the camera, or the power system, a video clip of the very moment will be streamed and stored safely at the control panel.


Hikvision’s IVaaS Technology gives you the benefit of a fail-safe, smart security system with fewer false alarms and more valuable information. It is expertly designed for integration with 3rd-party IP cameras and offers a wide array of applications in residential and SMB scenarios.
