Eagle Eye Networks, Inc. announced the enhancement of the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS to include the integration of Hikvision body worn cameras. The new Eagle Eye solution provides ease, reliability, and cybersecurity to body worn camera users seeking to synchronise and store video for extended periods in the cloud.
The Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS will retrieve video and GPS data through a docking station connected to any Eagle Eye Bridge or Cloud Managed Video Recorder (CMVR) and securely transmit the video to the Eagle Eye Cloud Data Center. The body worn camera and its video appears in the Eagle Eye Customer Dashboard along with any fixed cameras attached to the system and can be reviewed, managed and analysed.
Integration with mobile cameras
Eagle Eye Networks’ customers have requested the integration of mobile cameras in to the Eagle Eye interface to enable the combination of fixed position cameras with mobile cameras to better serve specific applications.Eagle Eye's customers are using mobile video for optimisation in robotics, manufacturing, emergency room management and home care services
Law enforcement, guarding services, health care, retail management, training, warehouse management, and other service-oriented verticals create considerable value and reduce risk through the reliable and secure management of surveillance video in the cloud.
Several of Eagle Eye Networks’ high-tech customers are using mobile video for business optimisation in robotics, manufacturing, emergency room management and home care medical services. The challenge surrounding body worn and other types of mobile cameras has always been the lack of scalable, cost-effective, redundant storage. The Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS offers subscription-based storage for any period.
Body worn cameras
Lieutenant Kevin Francis, Head of the Bay County Sheriff’s Office Drug Enforcement Division stated, “We are excited to see Eagle Eye Networks adding body worn cameras to its system. The management of body worn video is cumbersome and unreliable from a storage perspective. The cloud makes it so much easier to store and retrieve evidentiary video.”
The use cases for body worn cameras are endless. Body worn cameras began gaining momentum in law enforcement and private security, but there are other business optimisation benefits that these cameras provide.Body worn camera users in retail are witnessing a decrease in customer standoffs and reduced claims against stores
Businesses using body worn cameras have been able to improve profitability, communication, and customer service by using the footage to provide scenario-based training to employees.
In the retail industry, for example, body worn camera users are witnessing a decrease in customer standoffs and reduced claims against stores based upon readily available visual evidence.
