Free video surveillance with Xeoma
Nowadays the term free is often used to refer to things not free at all: for example, to something of low cost, and sometimes even of high cost as well – when the seller considers it a good bargain. Xeoma does it differently: our “free” is exactly what it means – free of charge. Find out how you can get free video surveillance with Xeoma software:
Xeoma’s free version (free mode) is absolutely free to use. It is not limited by the time of work, and has no hidden payments or advertising.
More than 20 different modules available (including Camera, Schedule, Marking, Motion Detection, Email Sending, Archive and Preview and so on), as well as multiple features (including motion visualization, device list, etc.). Suitable for installations where only basic functions are required, for example, for home video surveillance.

Save even more with Xeoma
As you can see, free video surveillance is real and quite possible. In addition, here you can find out how else you can save with Xeoma.
Cheaper licenses: Xeoma licenses are up to 10 times more affordable than competitors’. Especially it concerns cost of professional capabilities and video analytics (for example, Face Recognition, LPR or POS solutions). With Xeoma you do not need to purchase separate packages for every professional feature: professional features are included in the Xeoma Pro edition. Also, Xeoma offers volume discount: the “bigger” license you buy, the greater discount you get.
Using free OS: Xeoma runs on a variety of operating systems, including free Linux distributions. Using the free version of Xeoma on a free OS, you get a functional video surveillance system for free.
No professional installation required: Xeoma is simple and flexible owing to its modular architecture. You can create a DIY video surveillance system completely for free, without hiring help. Save on installation engineers, high installation spendings, and wasted time!
Saving on licenses: if you need to use intellectual modules (e.g. ANPR, Face recognition, Smoke detector etc.), you can reduce the cost by purchasing Xeoma Pro licenses only for particular cameras because Standard and Pro licenses summarize! Example: you have 8 cameras and need to use ANPR (license plates recognition) module for 1 camera only, also you need to review all archives simultaneously (also a Pro feature). In this case you can save a lot because there’s no need to purchase Xeoma Pro license for 8 cameras, you can purchase Xeoma Pro license for 1 camera to have ANPR module (for 1 camera) and simultaneous archive view for all cameras + Xeoma Standard license for 7 cameras to have 8 cameras in total. It’ll be much cheaper than purchasing all cameras in Pro mode. And you can purchase additional AI-based modules as well (they can be activated alongside Standard or Pro perpetual licenses), so this way it might be cheaper than purchasing all-in-one licenses like Pro.
Also, there’s a cost-efficient Xeoma Starter mode available in Xeoma e.g. for home video surveillance. It allows connecting up to 1000 cameras on preview and 2 to record into archive. It costs only as low as $5.95. Prices can be checked here.
Saving on cameras: Xeoma has a phenomenal range of compatible cameras. Supported are more than a thousand cameras of different types, manufacturers, models. Thanks to this variety, you are not limited to a certain line of cameras, you are free to choose the one that suits you in terms of characteristics and budget.
Saving on equipment: thanks to the advanced algorithms and flexibility of settings, Xeoma can process several times more cameras on the same equipment than competitors. This means that hardware requirements will be lower, and can be bought for a lower cost.
