OpenEye Brings Affordable, Flexible, and Secure IP Surveillance to Your Premises

How Cloud-Based Security Systems Enhance Your Surveillance Solution

Surveillance and security increasingly need to be flexible, fast, and accessible. Network and cloud-based security systems offer convenience and versatility, but this often comes at a cost. Integrating, operating, and maintaining networks of cameras, recordings, and remote access can consume a large part of your IT department’s resources. 

OpenEye produces high-quality video monitoring, reliable recording, and secure access from anywhere in the world with minimal oversight from your IT department. Deploying OpenEye’s combination of cloud-based systems and local hardware saves time and money, utilizing the most efficient local network and the power of the cloud. The system uses the cloud for management operations and file storage, while video recordings stay in local NVR’s (networked video recorders) for faster performance and smoother operations.

Streamlined Operations

A large part of the work in local IP-based network devices is administering and managing devices, connections, and user permissions. With the cloud-based OpenEye Web Services (OWS), all the information and tools are centrally located. 

The online portal gives you access to all of your networks across a mall complex or sites across the country.  Changing users, permissions, or accessing cameras and files is quick and straightforward; just a few mouse clicks, and you are all set.

The online system monitors every device on location, verifying health, and proactively addressing issues.  Updates to firmware are automatically initiated, and any concerns that cannot be resolved are added to your alerts for further investigation.

Access Locally or Remote App

Video surveillance is more than monitoring live feeds; the ability to record, store, and share incident evidence is essential. OpenEye uses local NVR’s to provide better quality video, the reduces online storage costs and allows for longer storage time. Files can be exported to the cloud and shared with staff and law enforcement via password-protected links.

Alerts and notifications can be accessed from anywhere using the mobile app. Simply tap on the alert thumbnail to see the camera name, location, and to review footage.
