Surveillance enhanced with smartphone
First publishedin ITS International
Integration between OnSSI’s Ocularis video management software (VMS) platform and the Elerts software solution enables security personnel to receive immediate, actionable incident information via smartphone. On receiving an incident report, the Elerts cloud-based software matches the GPS location of that smartphone with a database of camera field of view polygons. Information is instantly sent to Ocularis, which then automatically pushes live footage from the camera closest to the incident to a command centre or other display.
OnSSI claims the Ocularis-Elerts integration delivers a solution that enables better, faster communication of incidents, saying the open architecture of Ocularis enables them to work closely with developers of industry-leading technology to create practical and useful new applications for video management solutions.
