Connected Technologies Adds GeoView Mapping for Real-Time Facility Viewing
GeoView users have secure access to a map of their building(s) providing information at a glance through designated icons.
MONUMENT, Colo. — Connected Technologies announces the addition of GeoView, powered by Google Maps, to the Connect ONE Cloud-hosted security management platform.
With GeoView, users can see the current status for all locations and installations in a wide-area satellite map. Users can drill down into each location for real-time alarm, health and system monitoring and control, with GeoView showing the exact zone and location on alarm or alert.
GeoView is said to allow dealers to offer different levels of managed services for recurring monthly revenue (RMR), while end users can interact consistently with the solution, making for a stickier, long-term customer.
GeoView users have secure access to a map of their building(s) providing information at a glance through designated icons that indicate live system status. The size of the map view only opens to the boundaries of site locations, keeping views relevant to customer’s locations.
Users get instant visual notification over the map for alarm activation — depicted with a flashing red icon; yellow a trouble condition; and green indicating good health status. All locations and status of systems installed are depicted on one screen.
Users view and control equipment by clicking on icons of cameras, zones and sensors, doors and outputs, as well manage arming and disarming of intrusion systems.
Remote Command and Control
With GeoView, users can monitor activity and send commands with mouse clicks to remotely lock or unlock doors or tap into cameras for a quick look at the surveillance area(s). Overlay interior floor plans are said to provide easy reference of equipment locations along with viewing and control, while the map of system and building particulars are easily modified if required.
GeoView for Connect ONE is billed as an RMR-generating service that differentiates dealers and helps lower attrition through its value proposition for end-user customers. It gives dealers more flexibility in customizing Connect ONE to fit their changing business goals and build their revenue streams.
For example, dealers can provide their customers with viewing and control functions along with mapping status and the dealer can manage data changes such as users’ access credentials, schedules and reporting functions. Since GeoView is a module of the Connect ONE Cloud-hosted service it can easily be set up or modified remotely from the integrator’s office and doesn’t require an on-site technician.
