Integrate any Alarm System with your Video Surveillance with IPTECHVIEW AlarmReady™

You can now provide your customer with owner-based video verification for any alarm system, and provide a reliable and rapid deployment solution that will notify by SMS or email and provide an instant view of what is going on at any of your customers’ covered locations.

Supported Video Surveillance systems based on cameras from MOBOTIX (Mx4 M14, M24, Q24 or above) can easily be upgraded to include this unique feature. (New camera vendors like AXIS and new models are being added regularly please check availability).

Any Alarm system can integrated starting off as low as with a single camera with no NVR or other central hardware needed other than connectivity to a POE switch and the router. The solution is scalable starting with a single 360-degree ceiling mount camera or 180 wall mount camera expandable to as many cameras and locations a customer may need. Installation is wicked fast with all cameras pre-configured to the IPTECHVIEW or MxMSP platform for instant deploying and immediate secure access for customers via IPTECHVIEW APP / MxLINQ on the devices of their choice - be it a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

Whenever an alarm goes off customers get an SMS and email within seconds and will see all activity at the affected location sorted by last detected movement activity.

Even if the alarm system is being monitored today, the customer most likely gets a call if he wishes to send the police, but the question is always how will anyone know if it's a false alarm or not.

AlarmReady™ resolves this conundrum by providing full, instant visibility to cameras that detect activity providing actionable intelligence. Better yet, AlarmReady can be combined with higher-end cameras that have Artificial Intelligence like the MOBOTIX Mx73 or with a cloud-based optional second stage A.I. processor to practically eliminate any false alarms. MxMSP now provides optional Calipsa False Alarm detection for $5 per month that will give a peace of mind that you will receive all positive alarms and will pretty much eliminate 99% of false alarms.

Your customer can start with one camera in his lobby area and maybe a second by his warehouse or back door aisle area and add more cameras over time and build out a smart and secure surveillance solution with cloud recording that is always accessible over the cloud. 

The MOBOTIX surveillance solution with pre-configured cameras becomes one of the fastest deployments possible.

All cameras are pre-configured to connect to the virtual surveillance account for our customer and as soon as the cameras get powered up on a POE switch with access from the inside to the Internet, they will securely connect with a VPN tunnel without the need to open up ports on the end user’s firewall. Ceiling cameras get installed by simply drilling a hole into the ceiling tile with a standard tool, clipping in the camera and connecting it with an RJ45 cable to the nearest PoE switch. Inexpensive PoE injectors can be added if no PoE ports are available. Many customers can install the cameras themselves in the center of the room. There is no focusing needed and no positioning since it is a 360-degree camera. Even the integration to the existing alarm-system can at least initially be done remotely if an alarm siren is near the camera by tuning an audio sensitivity alarm in the camera and triggering it by the alarm system. A dry contact wire connection can be added at a later time for silent alarms.
