The robot-submariner slowly creeps along the seabed. In its claw-manipulators a high-speed armored optical cable. Using a special plow, a long cable is buried in the ocean floor at a depth of at least one meter. The operator controls each step of the robot with the help of video surveillance cameras.

If you have a robot, a train or excavator digging a pit to magmatic rocks, you understand the meaning of remote control. And not only in these cases. In fact, the control of any moving objects is in demand in many cases – from sea transport to the sphere of motor transport.

Conventional solutions based on industrial DVRs have a high cost; Traditional car recorders with cellular communication modules have other disadvantages. We in Ivideon were able to come up with our own video surveillance system in transport, which is affordable for any client and much easier to set up.

What's the problem


Typical TVI-autoregistrator – 4 channels, resolution up to 720p (HD-TVI) / 1080p (IP), GPS and 3G – 55 thousand rubles

Solutions based on industrial DVRs have a high cost, require a dedicated IP address on the SIM card or install a dedicated server. IP-avtoregistrator – 4 channels, resolution up to 1080p, 3G – from 57 thousand rubles

Traditional Car recorders with cellular communication modules also have limitations. The available analogue recorders have a low resolution and, as a consequence, poor image quality. IP-registrars are much more expensive, cumbersome, support only one SIM-card, they work only with four or more channels. This means that you can not put a cheaper single-channel IP-recorder that would work with only one camera.

The cellular communication module greatly increases the cost of the recorder. In addition, the cost of the solution should include the cost of cameras, HDD, server, setup and training costs.

How the Ivideon solution is arranged


On transport, cameras with built-in Ivideon service record video on a memory card and connect to a cloud service via an industrial 4G router with an external Antenna. Image from cameras and recordings can be viewed on a desktop, tablet or smartphone.

A memory card with a capacity of up to 128 GB can be inserted into the camera – this lasts for 140 hours of continuous recording. Also the camera supports various detectors (alarm button, door opening, etc.) and gives the possibility to receive instant notifications about their operation.

The solution uses a router with auto-switching of communication channels, which works when the communication is lost on one of the sim cards, when roaming, when the balance is zeroed, and in some other cases. Cellular communication is used for remote viewing, and recordings can be downloaded via the Wifi network of the vehicle fleet.

How it looks


Just like Any other camera in the personal office of Ivideon – with access to viewing live broadcasts, archive, camera settings, events. You can organize a local operator workplace on a Windows, Linux or MacOS computer by installing the Ivideon Client program. Desktop client is convenient in that it allows to work effectively with a large number of cameras distributed on different objects: scan several cameras at once on one screen or display the image from cameras to several monitors.


You can watch the broadcast from the cameras via the mobile application.

Any camera with built-in Ivideon service with a resolution of 1.3 megapixels, 2 megapixels and 3 megapixels, 25 frames / second is put. We also put an industrial 4G-router with two slots for SIM-cards (with automatic switching).

A voltage converter is included in the set for the possibility of connecting several cameras (up to 160W). The input voltage is DC 20-30V. The time relay is connected in special way – to delay the turning off of the camera after the ignition is switched off.

If you do not yet have a contract with a mobile communications operator for unlimited 4G, complete with a video surveillance solution for transport Ivideon offers SIM cards MegaFon with unlimited traffic + a tariff for recording in the cloud. However, the solution will work with SIM cards of any cellular operator.

Where to use

Example of video unloaded from the cloud


Cargo transportation: remote control of cargo transportation and manipulation with them at any time


Construction machinery: monitoring the efficiency of operation and labor discipline


Public transport: passenger safety , etc

The system has proved its efficiency at temperatures up to -35 ° C

Advantages of the system

  • By connecting to the cameras via Cloud service there is no need to pay for a dedicated IP address, to make complex configuration of equipment.
  • All cameras in transport can be consolidated in one interface.
  • It is possible to set an arbitrary number of cameras – 1, 2, 3 … as much as you want.
  • There is no need to put specialized software on the operator's side.
  • A wide selection of cameras for installation from the list integrated with the Ivideon service.
  • There are no restrictions on the number of simultaneously connected users.
  • It is possible to connect the alarm button, the sensor.

How to connect

Retail price for a set of video surveillance with one camera starts from 40 000 rubles. For connection, please write (or call +7 495 545 49 27).
