On-Net Surveillance Systems Inc.(OnSSI) is teaming up with S2 Security Corp. to extend the companies’ integrated digital video and physical security management solutions to medium-sized organizations—those that use a single-server network video recorder and up to 64 cameras at a single site.
OnSSI has integrated its NetDVR single-server NVR and camera management system with S2’s NetBox network-based physical security management system, enabling surveillance video to correspond to events detected by a range of physical security devices, including access control, alarm monitoring and temperature monitoring.
Because the integrated system attaches video to each unauthorized access attempt or perimeter security breach, it eliminates the need to search for and match video content to security exceptions, the companies said. As a result, users are able to effectively respond to real-time security events and to streamline the investigation of security events after they occur.
The integration is part of an ongoing collaboration between the two companies. The companies previously combined the capabilities of the S2 NetBox and the OnSSI NetDVMS system for large-scale deployments, such as on campuses and multi-site facilities and for an unlimited number of cameras.
“Our continuing partnership with S2 represents a transition in video surveillance, shifting the focus from merely aggregating video content to intelligent events-based detection and video delivery,” said Mulli Diamant, vice president for sales at OnSSI, based in Pearl River, N.Y.
“The S2 strategy is to freely distribute APIs [application programming interfaces] that enable innovation by our partners,” said John L. Moss, president and CEO of S2, based in Framingham, Mass. “With our open platform, we can form partnerships such as the one with OnSSI to offer integrated network video recording products that operate seamlessly through the S2 NetBox user and programming interfaces.”
