Denver Children’s Specialists moved from separate DVRs to ControlByNet’s solution to monitor its six locations throughoutColorado. ControlByNet’s solution is based on its i-flashback software. In the past, remote video access included downloaded front-end applications run from an onsite computer, with onsite storage and multiple logins for different sites. ControlByNet’s i-flashback provides an easy to use, 100-percent browser-based application.
“We are constantly looking to utilize the latest in technology to improve our efficiencies and capabilities,” said Jonathan Lee, partner in Denver Children’s Specialists. “ControlByNet provides us with the full benefits of having our security ‘on the cloud’ including remote hosting, multiple location access from a single web login and access on mobile devices. It’s an enterprise solution versus the usual model of many independent solutions being patched together which we wanted to avoid.”
Key benefits and cost savings for the locations utilizing i-flashback REMOTE include:
- no onsite recording devices required in many instances
- key cameras recorded offsite, which is critical for security when onsite video could be compromised or ‘disconnected’
- grouping of remote cameras from different locations together through a browser interface; saving significant time in viewing/monitoring and enhanced ease of use.
With multiple locations, ControlByNet’s ability to centrally link together Denver Children’s Specialists locations with a single login removed the troublesome problem of remembering many different links or IP addresses for video access. All video surveillance servers, regardless if hosted by ControlByNet or at a Denver Children’s Specialists site, are linked or ‘attached’ to each other allowing for centrally managed user accounts. This provides a true single web sign-on with levels of access for each of the employees. The manager at each location can see just his site, while the regional manager can see his area sites and the partners can see all of the sites as dictated by the security department, all from one login and company web address. Both solutions allow a centralized management system which saves money and provides greater control of the organizational security.
