This Quick Start builds an Internet of Things (IoT) Camera Connector environment and serverless architecture on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 5 minutes.

The Quick Start includes a template and Config App that help you rapidly discover, provision, connect, and manage cameras (available through select partners) and their streaming video content to Amazon Kinesis Video Streams.

You can use this Quick Start to automate the connection—and simplify the management—of thousands of cameras through AWS IoT Core. You can also enable video streaming to Amazon Kinesis Video Streams for storage, playback, and machine learning–driven analytics.

The template creates resources in your AWS account to provision cameras as IoT things.

The Config App enables discovery of supported cameras on your local network. It also provides IoT certificates and other information necessary for cameras to stream video content to Amazon Kinesis Video Streams.

In 5 minutes or less, you can connect up to thousands of cameras and begin implementing streaming-video analytics solutions.
