In this age of ever-advancing security technology, there simply is no more room for excuses when it comes to protecting your business. Whether the concern lies with outside threats, inside risks, or day-to-day operations monitoring, surveying one’s own business has become commonplace for any mid to high level corporation (or school, for that matter).
According to Statista, by 2023, the video surveillance market is projected to be worth up to 62.6 billion U.S. dollars, with infrastructure applications forecast to make up 36% of the global market. “Infrastructure applications” refers to enhanced security capabilities such as alarms, access control devices, and other components that supplement run-of-the-mill security cameras, aimed to deliver a top-tier security package. With such a rapidly growing market, it’s easy to want to rip and replace entire camera systems to be, say, completely cloud-connected, but what about businesses on a budget who have costly and extensive infrastructure already in place? Is there some sort of hybrid solution that allows businesses to keep their existing camera systems while also connecting their control to the cloud? Come on, it’s 2020, of course there is!
Introducing: Connected Sites. Connected Sites integrate with existing security cameras for easy installation. Simply plug the Connected Sites DVR into your network via ethernet and set up the cloud VMS in under 10 minutes. With just a few clicks, you can detect and add existing IP camera systems into the dashboard. From there, you can use these camera streams to create custom views, share footage, and gain visibility from any device. It really is that easy.
Designed for industrial operations and educational institutions, Connected Sites empowers business owners to do so much more than just survey their facilities.
Security – Connected Sites cameras use powerful AI technology to identify pre-determined threats, both outside and inside the facility, and send immediate alerts to the appropriate personnel. Unusual activities, such as thefts or altercations, are responded to immediately and time spent investigating is reduced dramatically.
Safety – Workplace hazards are commonplace for many industries. From faulty equipment to freak accidents, there are many reasons to use Connected Sites to monitor the safety of employees. With intelligent detection and powerful search capabilities, management can quickly identify workplace hazards before an incident of any kind happens.
Efficiency – Keeping operations running at 100% efficiency is important to every business owner. Whether your company is manufacturing car parts or packaging potato chips, there are many opportunities for time or assets to become wasted, in turn losing the business money. Connected Sites uses AI insights and proactive alerts to identify process or operational inefficiencies, pinging management when a weak link has been discovered.
Another important aspect of business operations, especially in industries dealing with sensitive information, is data protection. Is your video footage being protected from hackers or other ill-wishers? Do you understand the risks being run when dealing with substantial amounts of sensitive data being recorded and stored onsite? In 2018, it is estimated that nearly 46% of US companies suffered a data breach, almost doubled from 24% in 2017. These figures tell us that technology advancements are emboldening cyber-attackers and their malfeasance is showing no signs of slowing down.
From a patented technology architecture to built-in security tools for administrators, Connected Sites ensures that your network and organization is totally protected. This protection includes:
TLS 1.2 protocols, AES256 encryption
Always protected with over the air patches
Validated by 3rd party audits
Robust end-user security tools
Redundant hosted software service
As with all forms of technology, sometimes there is a malfunction or a user error that causes a disruption in functionality. If an issue ever arises with Connected Sites, there is a robust Knowledge Base available that allows you to self-service minor issues, and 24/7 support ensures you’ll always have someone to call if there’s ever a problem that can’t be managed locally.
Connected Sites empower business owners to protect their facilities to the fullest, by using cutting-edge technology to turn existing security camera systems into cloud-based mega-security solutions. The powerful AI learning of the cameras lets you set predetermined filters, so search, find, and alert capabilities are a breeze if ever an incident, large or small, occurs. This same AI learning can be applied to pinpoint weaknesses in the operations chain, identifying the cause and sending automatic notifications to management so action can be taken. Connected Sites technology keeps employees safe, the facility secure, and business operations boomin’. Reach out to Monarch to schedule a demo today!
