Extending the capabilities of alarm monitoring

Eagle Eye Networks and Sitasys have introduced what they describe as first of its kind automated alarm handling for operation centres.

The Eagle Eye Cloud VMS and its analytics functionality has been integrated into the evalink Alarm Monitoring Platform allowing service operations centres to more efficiently and effectively  manage an unlimited number of cameras without additional human resources.

This development builds on the existing partnership between Sitasys and Eagle Eye Networks to create an enhanced security monitoring platform by implementing a cloud-to-cloud integration of video surveillance and alarm monitoring. This integration allows users to immediately connect Eagle Eye Networks VMS into the revolutionary cloud based evalink alarm management platform from Sitasys.

Sitasys used Eagle Eye Networks RESTful API platform and Big Data Video Framework to rapidly develop and deliver cyber secured integration between its alarm management evalink platform and the Eagle Eye Networks cloud-based video surveillance platform.

The integrated system allows users to connect video analytics with smart workflows to automate operational processes. In addition, the user can index, search, retrieve, and analyse video based on alarms from the Sitasys system. The integration and verification process saves time, reduces operations to a minimum, and prevents unnecessary intervention costs.

Rishi Lodhia, managing director, Eagle Eye Networks in EMEA says: “This form of automated monitoring is a first in the industry and will give businesses the opportunity to outsource their video monitoring at a lower cost with better accuracy creating benefits for everyone involved. This is an example of how AI can optimise the whole value chain within the security industry. We’re proud to join with Sitasys in pushing the boundaries of technology and client experience.”

Working closely together the engineering teams at Eagle Eye Networks and Sitasys completed development and quality assurance in two weeks. The functionality meets an often requested need for Service Operation Centres that want to scale their business, add additional remote monitoring services and manage more cameras without adding additional resources.
