Security System News: North American video surveillance market poised for rapid expansion

July 16, 2014

ControlByNet continues to see growth with its i-flashback CLOUD solution. The following article on Security System News by Leif Kothe projects rapid growth in the video surveillance market.

With the technology becoming ever more sophisticated, video surveillance systems are on the verge of becoming an indispensible component of security systems worldwide. In the coming years, the growth of the North American market is expected to reflect that reality.

Worth $4.56 billion in 2013, the market is projected to reach $15.81 billion by 2020, according to a market report from BIS Research titled, “Video Surveillance System (camera, storage, monitor, software & services) market size: Global analysis & forecast—2014 to 2020.”

“The ongoing market trend suggests that in the coming years there will be a massive proliferation of IP cameras in the market, thanks to the high image quality and low power consumption in such cameras,” Ravi Baid, technology practice head at BIS Research, told Security Systems News.

Baid noted that high revenues in recent times are in part attributable to recent terror attacks, such as the Boston Marathon bombing, which showcased the efficacy of sophisticated video surveillance systems. Recent high-profile attacks and crimes have demonstrated that many security systems were, according to Baid, “lacking the ‘intelligence’ required to monitor and control anti-social activities.”

ControlByNet’s True Cloud-Based Security Provides Multi-Family Housing with Secure Footage to Fight Crime and Improve Operations

October 10, 2013

ControlByNet’s Video Surveillance Used to Help Convict Criminal on Customer’s Property

ControlByNet, (CBN), a leader in cloud-based, hosted video security surveillance solutions, announced today continued growth of its i-flashback CLOUD in multi-family housing complexes which provides immediate storage on the cloud to help fight crime, as well as improve operations.  CBN provides its customers, both large and small, one solution that allows them to access their security on their terms – even in a courtroom such as in this criminal case. (click here)

“We continue to see growth in the multi-family housing segment.  The reliability on our surveillance whether on a desktop, laptop or mobile device has very real implications for our customers’ businesses,” said Ryan Strange, CEO of ControlByNet.  “Currently, most businesses use DVRs in surveillance and the DVR can be stolen, broken or damaged, so it does no good.  Conversely, the news is constantly showing cases of video surveillance in criminal activity and recently, the surveillance from one of our clients was a main piece of evidence in a crime and instrumental in the conviction of the criminal. However, if the video is not securely stored like it is with our i-flashback CLOUD, customers can be left without the needed evidence.”

i-flashback CLOUD enables users to view one or multiple properties over any web browser including smartphones and tablets through a single log-in.  With i-flashback CLOUD, recorded video is safely stored immediately off site. There is no ‘store and forward when convenient’; with i-flashback CLOUD, it is immediately safe and secure.

Cloud-based surveillance assists multi-family housing in many ways including:

  • Prevent video evidence theft
  • Assist in the eviction of undesirable tenants
  • Increase in convictions of crimes on the property; secure footage reliable in court
  • Minimize costs of onsite hardware requirements
  • Prevent missing incidents due to power or equipment failure
  • Reduce on-site management
  • Backup key cameras to a primary system
  • Convert analog cameras to the cloud

ControlByNet Integrates Bosch IP Cameras into its i-flashback Hosted Video Solution

June 6, 2013

ControlByNet, a leader in cloud-based, hosted video security surveillance solutions, announced today support for certain Bosch IP cameras in ControlByNet’s i-flashback and its companion ip-LookOUT guard station solutions.  ControlByNet’s addition of Bosch IP cameras is in direct response to customer requests to take advantage of the Bosch IVA features for advanced analytics to reduce false alarms such as clouds and rain.  

The key differentiator in ip-LookOUT is the cloud-based model. “With ip-LookOUT the guard is no longer bound to one room and one PC. Within a few seconds, all of an organization’s facilities are fully and actively monitored from a new location,” said Ryan Strange, CEO of ControlByNet. “It redefines the term redundancy when the customer has the ability to bring the whole system back up from anywhere in the world at the press of a button.  Security centers spend thousands and hundreds of thousands on redundant power, Internet, fire suppression and the like when our solution provides the ability to fully monitor from any remote facility within the blink of an eye.  Imagine an organization simply clicking an icon and being fully up and monitoring properties in minutes.  Adding capabilities from the Bosch solution just make it that much more efficient.” Read the rest of this entry »
