Works with or without an NVR

Manything sends video directly to the cloud, without having to store it locally — the cost of an NVR can be saved if on-site storage is not needed.

Manything can also work alongside an NVR to provide additional off-site storage.

Optimised for real world network conditions

Manything automatically adjusts frame rate, bit rate and resolution to ensure recorded events are sent to the cloud, even in poor network conditions.

Secure and non-discoverable

All cameras running Manything are non-discoverable and have UPnP and NAT disabled.

Video is stored and encrypted in Amazon Web Services. When videos are viewed they are transmitted over an encrypted TLS or HTTPS channel.

Easy set up

No port forwarding or router configuration required.
Our clever software does it all for you.

Simply install our software on to the
cameras using the Manything Pro app.

Buy on Apple app store Get on Google Play

The Manything app uses FFmpeg code licensed under the LGPLv2.1 and its source can be downloaded here
