|The VyneWatch cloud-based service keeps users informed of the status of their video surveillance recording devices
Razberi Technologies — a leading developer of network video solutions for professional video surveillance and security applications — has released VyneWatch™, a new product that monitors the status of users video recording devices, regardless of the video platform use.
“Companies invest thousands of dollars into video surveillance security only to discover that something as simple as a routine server system update can sideline their ability to retrieve video — and they very often discover this too late,” said Razberi Technologies President Tom Galvin. “The new razberi VyneWatch™ cloud-based service provides extra protection to help users know when their system isn’t working properly so they can address the problem prior to losing any ability to recover important video.”
VyneWatch monitoring system - cloud-based service
The innovative razberi™ VyneWatch™ Monitoring System is a cloud-based service that keeps users informed of the status of their video surveillance recording devices — regardless of the video management software (VMS) platform you use. Even if you have an expansive IT department, it is often difficult to provide the manpower to evaluate all that could potentially knock your video system offline, for example, failure of hard disks to start properly or when utilisation is approaching the maximum for the system.
“One of the strongest benefits of VyneWatch™ is that it provides companies an independent system monitor of equipment which leads to instant direct notification of any issues,” said Galvin.
There are several ways in which VyneWatch™ works to monitor a video surveillance system:
- Server Monitoring — reports the current CPU load and memory utilisation and an inventory of the sever serial number, model, name, OS type, CPU model, clock speed, and memory capacity. This is done remotely via a simple and intuitive interface.
- Network Switch Monitoring — allows the visibility of traffic levels on uplink and camera ports. PoE power levels allow spotting a camera operating beyond normal limits. Sensors detail port setup, traffic levels, link speed, queue length, and PoE performance.
- Storage System Monitoring — hard drives are monitored for the amount of free space, transfer rates, queue lengths, RAID Status, and other performance indicators. Disks can also provide an inventory of devices including manufacturer, model, serial numbers, and capacity.
- Event Management — any time an event occurs, VyneWatch™ can instantly email or text a report to as many people are required, allowing proper simultaneous response.
The company’s incredible growth
The release of the razberi™VyneWatch™ is just one of many steps Razberi Technologies has recently taken as a result of the company’s incredible growth. Razberi raised $3.5 million in capital led by Texas-based LiveOak Venture Partners to support product development and growth and relocated company headquarters to a larger facility within the Dallas/Fort worth Metroplex.
Razberi Technologies Releases VyneWatch™, a cloud-based video system status monitor at this years’ ISC West in Las Vegas.
