Connect ONE Cloud-Hosted Interface Now With Physical Asset Tracking
Now installing security contractors can easily keep tabs on a wide array of equipment and capital goods through the asset management platform.
MONUMENT, Colo. — Systems integrators who want to offer new services to their end-user customers can now deploy physical asset management location and tracking through the Connect ONE Cloud-hosted service.
With the Connect ONE Asset Management Module, assets such as keys, laptops, tablets, electronics and a wide array of other capital goods including equipment and tools can be tracked to locations and users.
Available as a standalone feature or combined with intrusion detection, access control and video, the Asset Management Module presents a streamlined way to track equipment and goods to locations and/or users. Once an asset has been designated to a user, it automatically sends a customized authorization template via email for the person to approve and sign.
The completed form is converted to a pdf and recorded with their user account in Connect ONE for archive. An asset that is not returned by the specified date will generate a notification to the assigned user via email when overdue.
“While keys represent a common application, there are many other assets which can be tracked,” says Mike Simon, managing partner, Connected Technologies. “Users can eliminate time lost searching for equipment and other items, which are easily checked out and logged back seamlessly via the interface and tracked to their current location.”
The Asset Management Module is said to streamline the return process with a template sign-off option generated to the user. Users can manage equipment in the field and track the asset for a quick check of their location. Assets are auto-populated into the Connect ONE interface from a CSV spreadsheet for simple set up.
Connect ONE by Connected Technologies is a Cloud-hosted integrated security management solution which leverages one user interface to control intrusion, access control, video surveillance, critical environmental monitoring and energy management.
Connect ONE works with Bosch B and G series, DMP XR/XT series, ELK M1 series and Honeywell Vista Turbo security and access control panels and also integrates with ASSA ABLOY Aperio wireless lock technology.
