Hikvision is expanding the opportunities for comprehensive CCTV system checks through a unique partnership with EMCS, one of the UK’s largest independent monitoring stations. EMCS will use their CCTV Sentry software to proactively monitor every customer’s CCTV system, not just those that traditionally opt for a monitored solution, and send an email if any problem is detected and Hikvision has ensured that its entire range of DVR, NVR, Hybrid, and HD-SDI products is 100% compatible.
EMCS has worked closely with Hikvision to roll out this comprehensive system checking service to the 80% of customers that have not, until now, had their CCTV systems monitored. Every Hikvision DVR is now compatible with CCTV Sentry and provides information on camera and hard disk failures, recording issues and time accuracy problems. As well as email alerts, CCTV Sentry customers can view a live status webpage on a smartphone, anywhere, anytime.
Integrating CCTV Sentry into EMCS’ standard alarm panel is a breakthrough for sites with unmonitored CCTV installations, allowing them to be alerted when a fault happens rather than finding out after an incident has occurred. It also means the team at EMCS can offer an immediate visual check for an intruder if an alarm is triggered.
