Gateway

A Gateway is a compute device that can execute a Pipeline and process video from Streams, IP Cameras on the same network, or attached USB cameras.

Overview

A Gateway serves 2 purposes :

  1. Performs the actual analytic processing either on Edge (on-premise) devices or servers, or on GPU servers in the cloud.
  2. Allows secure access to on-site cameras for configuration and cloud streaming, without opening up ports outside the firewall.

Gateways run Lumeo software on them, and communicate securely to Lumeo's cloud services for command-and-control via the Console or API. Lumeo supports local devices such as Jetson family (NX, AGX, etc.) , and on-prem or cloud based x86 servers with Nvidia GPUs as Gateways.

Lumeo also provides managed Cloud gateways you can use to process video in the Lumeo cloud, without having to setup your own. To provision a Lumeo Cloud gateway on your account, please contact support.

  • Ideal if you have existing GPU based servers or want to process larger number of streams

Lumeo Cloud

Lumeo managed GPU-based Cloud instances

Cloud-accessible Cameras,
Cloud-accessible Recordings

Cloud VMS

  • Ideal if you have enough bandwidth on site and do not want to deploy on-prem hardware
  • No need to manage hardware or cloud computing instances
  • More expensive vs running on On-prem devices (over a longer period of time)
  • Cannot access Cameras or content behind on-prem firewalls

Your Cloud

GPU-based Cloud instances

Cloud-accessible Cameras,
Cloud-accessible Recordings

Cloud VMS

  • Ideal if you have enough bandwidth on site, do not want to deploy on-prem hardware, and have technical expertise to manage your own cloud instances
  • More expensive vs running on On-prem devices (over a longer period of time)
  • Cannot access Cameras or content behind on-prem firewalls

Development Kits

Commercial Jetson-based Edge Gateways

  • Commercial grade devices based on Nvidia Jetson (aka AI Inference Computers, or Box PCs), running Jetpack 4.6 or higher.
  • Come pre-installed with the right software, so you can install Lumeo on it and get up and running faster.

GPU based Servers

  • x86 Servers with Nvidia GPUs, Running Ubuntu Linux 18.04
  • Can be installed on-site, or hosted within AWS, Google Cloud, Azure or any other cloud provider.

Lumeo Cloud

  • Lumeo managed cloud computing environment.
  • Best suited for processing camera streams or files accessible via the web (i.e., not behind a on-prem firewall)

Setting Up a Gateway

Setup a new Gateway using the Lumeo Gateway Installer script on your own devices or cloud GPU instances, or use Lumeo-published Gateway machine images for public clouds.

See instructions here : Gateway Setup Guide

Once setup, return to the Console to see it show up in the Gateways list.

You need to ensure the Gateway is able to talk to Lumeo’s cloud services. More info in Security & Network section.

Update Gateways

Once installed, Lumeo will always keep itself up to date on the Gateways, by downloading and installing any updates we publish.

To refresh an installation, you can always re-run the installer from the previous step, and answer No when it asks you if you would like to set is up as a new gateway.

Discover Cameras

Navigate to Gateways β†’ Gateway Name page and you will notice the Gateway automatically attempts to discover IP Cameras on the network, or USB Cameras attached to the Gateway device. If not, at any time you click on Discover and start a discovery process.
