Connected Technologies LLC and OpenEye announced a new integration between OpenEye Web Services (OWS) and Connect ONE.
Connect ONE by Connected Technologies is a cloud-hosted integrated security management platform that provides a single user interface to control intrusion, access control, critical environmental monitoring, energy management and video surveillance. OpenEye OWS is an online video management solution that combines the performance and reliability of local recording with the convenience and flexibility of the cloud. Now, the OpenEye NVR and the Connect ONE cloud platform are accessible directly through the OWS cloud.
The integration eliminates the need to connect to an IP address or open an inbound port on the end-user’s network firewall. Once connected, Connect ONE users can quickly retrieve and easily configure OpenEye cameras; view live video; record snapshots upon an event from the intrusion/access system for video verification; or review a 10-second pre-event and up to 45-second post-event video clip. Another future feature release will include the ability to receive OpenEye NVR health status reporting as well as motion or input trigger events through Connect ONE.
“We’re excited to offer this capability to OpenEye and Connect ONE users,” said Rick Sheppard, CEO of OpenEye. “OpenEye is committed to offering integrated solutions that add value and enhance functionality for our customers through strategic partnerships such as this one.”
Dan Simon, co-founder and managing partner, Connected Technologies, said technology partnerships with industry leaders such as OpenEye allow dealers to add new capabilities and services to their customer’s systems. “Connected Technologies is founded on delivering the timeliest solutions to security dealers. In fact, this integration was created due to dealers’ requests. The OpenEye integration adds value to their projects, brings exciting capabilities through a single user interface and helps them differentiate their service offerings.”
