Eagle Eye Networks Announces $1,000,000 Drako School Grant – Cloud Video Surveillance 2020

Grants to help schools stretch security dollars for improving deterrence, detection, and response to incidents.

AUSTIN, TX. Eagle Eye Networks today announced up to $1,000,000 in available funding for the 2020 Drako School Grant, supporting the implementation and operation of security equipment, and cloud recording services at local school buildings and/or campuses. Eligible schools, or school districts, include accredited private and public schools: elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and colleges.

“By increasing access to high-quality cloud video surveillance we’re cultivating a safer environment for our students, parents, and staff. We believe that the future of video surveillance is in the cloud, and our schools deserve a flexible, secure, low-cost solution that only migrating to a Cloud VMS can guarantee,” said Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye Networks.

Eagle Eye Networks has extensive experience protecting schools across the nation, collaborating with schools in over 15 states to provide modern, simple-to-use video surveillance solutions. “We love Eagle Eye Networks. Compared to our slow, outdated surveillance system, we now have full confidence that the video is recording reliably in the cloud,” said former Drako School Grant winner, Timothy Lee, Principal at Oakwood High School in Oakwood, Illinois.

Why more schools are moving their video surveillance to the Cloud:

1. Flexible permission-based accessibility: Administrators can see what is happening in any location from any device running the Cloud VMS mobile app or a modern browser.

2. First Responders access: School VMS administrators have the option to designate first responders to receive real-time and historical video access during emergency situations.

3. Access control: Integrations with world-class companies like Brivo, DMP and Salto provide customers with comprehensive solutions that combine cloud video surveillance with key access control functions.

4. IT efficiencies: Reduce the amount of equipment and human resources needed onsite by eliminating the need for maintaining outdated on-site storage systems.

5. Centralized management: The Eagle Eye Cloud VMS provides central management tools that enable administrators to track user activity and delegate or revoke user access, all from a mobile or web browser.

6. Unlimited scalability: Eagle Eye Cloud VMS allows customers to expand storage capacity on demand, minimizing capital expenditures and eliminating the need to decide how many servers will be needed in the future.

7. Cyber security: All Eagle Eye Networks video is encrypted on site and remains encrypted at rest, in flight, and in our Cloud. This means your campus is not subject to unauthorized viewing or recording of school video.

$1,000,000 Drako School Grant for Video Surveillance – Details

Grant recipients will receive one full year of funding for the cloud-based Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System (VMS) and associated components. The solution includes cameras, gateways, cloud recording services, and centralized management. Optionally, schools can use their existing security cameras, and integrate their on-site surveillance system to the Eagle Eye cloud-based VMS. School grant recipients are responsible for the cost of installation if necessary.

The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS will work with a broad array of IP, analog, or HD over coax.

Grant applications will be accepted through December 31, 2019. Grant winners will be notified of the next steps within 2 weeks of submission.

Eagle Eye Networks Extends Mobile and Body Camera Support in Eagle Eye Cloud VMS

The Eagle Eye Cloud Video Management System (VMS) expands camera
compatibility with support for over 15 additional body worn cameras.

AUSTIN, TX. Eagle Eye Networks today unveiled enhancements to the Eagle Eye
Cloud VMS supporting 15 additional third party mobile and body worn cameras. The
Eagle Eye VMS provides simultaneous operations, search, and cloud storage for
fixed and mobile cameras. Managing and retrieving body worn camera video has
historically been a separate process from the primary video surveillance system.
With Eagle Eye this can now be an integrated and cohesive process that requires
less training, is more secure, and more reliable. The Eagle Eye mobile and body
worn camera system includes:

• Viewing mobile and fixed camera footage in one cohesive interface
eliminating the need for multiple applications.
• Archiving, storage, and retrieval of time-stamped mobile footage with GPS
coordinates and tracking.
• Secure sharing of video via mp4 files or via direct links to interested parties.
• Open platform that provides compatibility with a broad array of cameras.
Today, Eagle Eye Networks provides support for over 3,500 mobile and fixed
cameras.
• Access to a True Cloud system meaning virtually unlimited scalability, triple
redundant data center architecture, full encrypted video, and comprehensive
cyber security.
• Eagle Eye Networks’ open API architecture, Eagle Eye Video API Platform,
delivers unlimited video analytics from partners.
• AI Ready – With video stored in the cloud and open API’s, new AI analysis is
being continually developed and improved.

“It’s been proven repeatedly that open systems architectures win over proprietary
systems. Eagle Eye Networks believes in open architecture standards and our
platform, Eagle Eye Cloud VMS, demonstrates this. Extending our platform to
encompass mobile cameras is a logical extension of our open camera platform. Our
open platform ability to integrate third party AI and Analytics is delivering on a broad
set of applications for our customers,” said Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye
Networks.

Eagle Eye Networks customers have desired integration of mobile and fixed camera
surveillance to reduce risk in commercial industries: in-home services, retail,
guarding, commercial delivery services, real estate sales, and other service-oriented
verticals. The mobile camera video and GPS data will be securely transferred to the
Eagle Eye Cloud Data Center where video footage can be reviewed, analyzed and
stored.

The Ultimate Automated Smart Life – Is It Possible?

The world is becoming more and more computerised by the day. More people are upgrading their mobiles to smartphones, older generations are joining the younger and flocking to social media, and you can now have sparkly clean floors without having to lift a finger. Which begs the question, can you have a fully automated smart life? Is it even possible?

Everybody has their own idea of what their perfect smart home would be, and that’s purely because of personal taste and budget. However, we think that it’s possible to have an ultimate automated smart life.

Photo by Designecologist

Let’s imagine it this way…

You’ve just finished work and after a long, busy, and difficult day. Customers were rude, your manager changed your workload and your feet ache. All you want to do is go home and relax. You leave work and head to your Tesla, which automatically pulls out of its parking space and towards you. It then adjusts the suspension to the terrain of the road so you can drive knowing it will be a smooth ride. You won’t have to worry about dangerous drivers either thanks to your car’s rear, side and front-facing cameras eliminating your blindspot.

You arrive home after a long but very comfortable commute and you’re immediately greeted with the humbling thought that your home is safe and sound even after being at work all day, and that’s thanks to your Ring security system keeping an eye on your home. You know your cat is in because Ring alerted you of his presence via your mobile app, which means first on the agenda is feeding him.

After feeding Tiddles you’re ready to spend the evening unwinding, but not until after making something delicious to eat! You use your uControl app to switch on your MHUB PRO and listen to your favourite podcast while you’re cooking dinner. While preparing your food you notice you need to go shopping, so you use your Google home hub so that tomorrow you don’t forget any of the essentials.

Once you’ve eaten dinner and packed away your plate into your smart dishwasher, it’s time to wind down in front of the television for a few hours, after all, you deserve it! You’ve just sat down and remembered that you didn’t grab the TV remote from the other side of the room, but that doesn’t matter because your uControl app can again control your TV and you can choose something interesting to watch. You notice that the Lord of the Rings is about to start and turn on your integrated Focal speakers to feel the full cinematic experience. However, you feel like you’re straining your neck to watch your TV. Luckily, that’s quickly solved by using your motorised TV mount from Vogel’s, adjusting to the optimal viewing position.

A little later you realise that you need to register your vote for the elections, so you head to your home office with your laptop and plug it into your PANCONNECT integrated flush mount, hiding all wires and making connectivity for your devices so much easier. You don’t have to worry about slow internet speeds either, because you know that your Purelink ethernet cable has got your back. You head to the Smartmatic website and register your vote without having to leave the comfort of your home.

You soon finish sending voting and sending off urgent emails and decide to go for a long, hot bath to help you relax before bed. You’re in your bathroom, which is already filling with steam and relaxing aromas, and you power on your ProofVision bathroom TV so that you can sink back and soak all of your troubles away.

Later, when you’re just drifting off to sleep, you notice that it’s a little chilly in your bedroom, so you use your smart heating system controlled by your smartphone to heat your home up to the perfect temperature. You find it easy to fall asleep after asking Alexa to play soothing ocean sounds combined with the assuring knowledge that your home is tailored to your every need.

As you can see, it’s totally possible to live an automated life with pretty much every task being made easier. Even chores such as cutting your lawn and maintaining your garden can be automated now thanks to robotic lawnmowers and smart irrigation systems.

How can I make my life automated?

Simply put, by purchasing technology that can automate your life with ease. There are dozens of products that claim to offer these kinds of features yet forget to mention it’s only with their own branded products. Not only that, cheap smart home automation products are likely to let you down. While over time the prices of smart home automation will reduce, to gain the full automated experience you’re better off investing your money into a decent brand.

We understand that this won’t come cheap to you and that money might not be endless, but luckily many smart home automation products come with the option for financing, meaning that you can have the perfect smart life and pay it off gradually.

Technology confuses me, what can I do to resolve this?

You don’t have to understand all of the jargon to use smart technology but if you’re still not sure, you can always speak to your distributors for some advice. Quite often, distributors host training events for those that want to make the most out of their products, or simply those who want to learn how to use them properly. Not only that, pretty much every product that you can buy in this day and age can be found online with detailed guides and videos to help you better understand your products.

So what are you waiting for? An automated smart life is just around the corner!








Hikvision UK and Eagle Eye Networks Announce Preferred Technology Partnership

Hik EEN

London, UK and Amsterdam, NL – Hikvision UK & Ireland, the world’s largest manufacturer of video surveillance products and solutions, and Eagle Eye Networks, the leading global provider of cloud-based video surveillance solutions, today announced a technology partnership to deliver customers a seamless and cyber secure cloud video surveillance solution.

Dean Drako, CEO and founder of Eagle Eye Networks stated, “we are pleased to expand our global relationship with Hikvision by partnering with Hikvision UK to serve customers in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland seeking a more cyber-secure surveillance solution.”

Eagle Eye’s Camera Cyber Lockdown blocks cameras from communicating with the Internet, blocks attacks from reaching cameras, and will not allow any Trojans ex-filtration. The Camera Cyber Lockdown feature greatly increases the security of video surveillance systems, reduces risk, and minimizes camera maintenance.

While the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS works with hundreds of manufacturer’s cameras, the Hikvision UK partnership is a valuable benefit to customers who don’t have the IT resources to constantly monitor and address cyber threats entering their network through devices attached to their surveillance system.

“We are also excited about the partnership with Eagle Eye Networks”, stated Jens Berthelsen, Global Partner Alliance Manager for Hikvision Europe. “Eagle Eye Networks is the leader in secure, cloud-based video surveillance solutions and the combination of our cameras with their cloud provides great scalability and price/performance.”

Eagle Eye Networks’ investments to build a global footprint of Data Centres has enabled its customers to easily deploy surveillance video systems at their sites around the world while maintaining consistency and cyber security.

The United Kingdom Preferred Technology Partnership announcement follows the recent news of Hikvision USA and Eagle Eye Networks working together to integrate HD-TVI camera technology in to the Eagle Eye Security Cloud VMS, enabling customers and channel partners to reduce operating costs by utilising existing coaxial cabling while upgrading to high-definition video surveillance systems.

Rishi Lodhia, Eagle Eye Networks’ Managing Director for EMEA, is leading the Eagle Eye Networks growth program in the region and noted the extraordinary alignment between Hikvision UK’s and Eagle Eye Networks’ reseller programs. “The Hikvision dealers in the UK are an extremely capable group of industry professionals and they’re very attentive to cyber security and GDPR compliance. The use of Hikvision cameras and Turbo recorders with Eagle Eye Networks’ cloud bridges and subscriptions is a future-proof marriage.”

Both Eagle Eye and Hikvision will be exhibiting at IFSEC 2018 in London, UK at stands E500 and D300 respectively. Alternatively visit: www.EagleEyeNetworks.com and www.Hikvision.co.uk.

Eagle Eye Networks Launches First Cloud-based Video Surveillance Solution for HD Video Over Coax

Eagle-Eye-LogoSquareEagle Eye Networks, Inc., the leading global provider of cloud-based video surveillance solutions, today announced the integration of HD-TVI (high definition transport video interface) via encoders and recorders from Hikvision into the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS.

HD Over Coax solutions offer some advantages over standard IP video camera systems, such as low upgrade cost, simple installation and less networking complexity. HD Over Coax is able to transmit reliably four to five times the distance of typical IP cameras allowing for longer cabling runs. The Eagle Eye Networks implementation of HD Over Coax utilizes existing analog cabling by simply replacing the camera and updating the encoder or recorder to communicate with the Eagle Eye Networks’ Bridge or CMVR (Cloud Managed Video Recorder).

This latest addition to the Eagle Eye Networks’ Cloud VMS list of supported technologies further demonstrates Eagle Eye Networks’ commitment to providing customers and partners with the most innovative choices available to improve video quality and reduce the cost of implementation. This industry first offering can save end-users significant expense when they are ready to move to the cloud. An additional benefit in choosing Eagle Eye Network’s Cloud VMS solution is the ability to use HD Over Coax cameras within the same system as traditional analog or IP cameras. The Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS bridges and CMVRs are already able to support both analog cameras and IP cameras from hundreds of manufacturers including Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hikvision, Panasonic, Pelco and Sony.

With Eagle Eye’s implementation, supported devices are plugged in to the secure CamLan port on Eagle Eye’s range of bridges and CMVRs creating an isolated, cyber-secure network for the HD transmission to to the Eagle Eye Cloud. Eagle Eye customers and resellers will benefit greatly from the flexibility to design systems using digital or analog cabling infrastructure.
