ControlByNet Has the Video Surveillance Solution to Combat Holiday Theft – It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…for Thieves

December 14, 2016

ControlByNet, a leader in cloud-based hosted video security surveillance, has a solution for businesses combating holiday theft. According to FBI findings, December is the peak month for burglaries and CNN reports that in many places, the week following Christmas has the heaviest burglary caseload.

ControlByNet’s cloud video surveillance software allows business owners to view one or multiple properties over any web browser including iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows Mobile devices with a single login. Recorded digital video is immediately and safely stored offsite, safe from theft or vandalism and can be viewed 24/7.

“Businesses need a digital video surveillance system that they can depend on during the busy holiday season when incidents increase. The video needs to be clear to help identify thieves or vandals and it needs to be easily accessible,” said Ryan Strange, CEO of ControlByNet. “Our video surveillance software provides clear digital video that can be used to identify criminals and subsequently prosecute them in court.”

Holiday Theft Prevention Tips
1. Position cameras to cover the most vulnerable and high traffic areas

2. Make sure that holiday decorations aren’t blocking the camera or causing a blind spot

3. Encourage residents to request signature upon delivery when arranging shipments

4. Leave the lights on – even if it’s just from the twinkle of a Christmas tree, lights are a deterrent

5. Ask residents about out-of-town plans – be vigilant in case of suspicious activity

6. Notify local police department for increased patrols

7. Switch dated analog surveillance to ControlByNet’s digital cloud surveillance solution


ControlByNet Launches Newest Version of CLOUD Video Surveillance Solution

October 19, 2016

i-flashback CLOUD Increases Reseller Recurring Revenue by 30%

ControlByNet, a leader in cloud-based hosted video security surveillance solutions, announced today the upcoming release of its latest i-flashback CLOUD platform which includes four major upgrades to better meet the needs of the customer. The ControlByNet i-flashback solution provides software that allows resellers to quickly and easily offer a hosted video surveillance solution to customers, creating an additional opportunity to increase monthly recurring revenue by 30%.

“This is a major release for us and we feel it’s important to continue to provide resellers a true cloud option,” said Ryan Strange, CEO of ControlByNet. “There’s so much confusion over true cloud providers versus those using the word cloud for marketing purposes. Cloud video surveillance should record the video events directly to the cloud instead of storing it temporarily onsite where it can be compromised or damaged. Our goal is to educate the customer so they understand the difference.”

ControlByNet’s latest i-flashback web-based platform introduces a completely redesigned web interface to better meet the needs of customers as well as simplify access for mobile devices. Additional features include:

  • motion trigger highlighting and inverse image coloring to more accurately find an event in complicated scenes
  • direct access to SD card video archives through a cloud-based timeline, which eliminates the need to access the video from each individual camera
  • management features which enable resellers to more quickly analyze a customer’s camera status and the impact on the system

“We have tested our software in live environments operating as our own small integrator with over 2500 managed and cloud-hosted cameras and believe we are in prime position to partner with resellers striving to produce more recurring monthly revenue,” states Strange. ControlByNet has also provided a new website, www.cbncloudsurveillance, that details more of the reseller side of the platform in addition to its current www.controlbynet.com site.
