TPG has branched into video surveillance services for small-to-medium businesses, creating a system that is underpinned by an ADSL2+ connection and "cloud infrastructure".

The company today unveiled the $49.99 a month service, which also requires the purchase of a $139.99 camera.

TPG said it started developing the product "from the ground up just over one year ago".

The system includes a portal where customers can watch live footage from the camera, as well as access video taken over the previous 48 hours.

TPG noted it would allow "up to three simultaneous logins" per customer. Videos were recorded in five minute intervals, and could be downloaded to a computer for storage after the 48-hour hosting limit elapsed.

A spokesman told iTnews that the service backed onto infrastructure that TPG picked up in its buyout of Intrapower (now known as TrustedCloud).

"Since then TPG has further invested in cloud infrastructure to support its current and future products in the cloud space," the spokesman said.

The spokesman indicated that no third-party cloud storage services were used.

"We keep all data in Australia on our own network backbone and within our own cloud systems to ensure we control the end to end product experience," he said.

TPG's consumer general manager Craig Levy said the uplink on ADSL connections had proven the "biggest challenge" in the product's development.

He said the end result required a minimum 256kbps on the uplink to stream and archive video.
