MONUMENT, Colo. — Connected Technologies has released GeoView, a new feature that incorporates Google Maps into the Connect ONE Cloud-hosted security management platform.
GeoView allows users to see status for all locations instantly in a wide-area satellite map and drill down into each location for real-time alarm, health and system monitoring and control, according to an announcement.
With GeoView, dealers can offer different levels of managed services while the end-user easily interacts with the solution, making for a stickier offering with recurring monthly revenue (RMR), the company says.
GeoView users have secure access to a map of their building(s) with information available at a glance through designated icons that indicate live system status. Users get instant visual notification over the map for alarm activation — depicted with a flashing red icon; yellow a trouble condition; and green indicating good health status.
Users can see all locations and status of systems installed in one location and view and control equipment by clicking on icons of cameras, zones and sensors, doors and outputs, as well manage arming and disarming of intrusion systems, according to the company.
With GeoView, users can monitor activity and send commands with mouse clicks to remotely lock or unlock doors or tap into cameras for a quick look at the surveillance area(s), for example. The size of the map view only opens to the boundaries of site locations, keeping views relevant to customer’s locations.
Overlay interior floor plans provide reference of equipment locations along with viewing and control, while the map of system and building particulars can be modified.
The company bills GeoView for Connect ONE as an RMR-generating service that differentiates dealers and helps lower attrition through its value proposition for end-user customers. The solution offers dealers more flexibility in customizing Connect ONE to fit their changing business goals and build their revenue streams.
For example, dealers can provide their customers with viewing and control functions along with mapping status and the dealer can manage data changes such as users’ access credentials, schedules and reporting functions. Since GeoView is a module of the Cloud-hosted service it can be setup or modified remotely from the integrator’s office and does not require an on-site technician.
