Viakoo, the first automated solution for cost effective and proactive management of IP video network infrastructure, announces the immediate availability of the company’s new PennyAlert™ for Video Security service. PennyAlert’s unique capability automatically diagnoses and sends corrective recommendations as an automated ticket alert to subscribers’ smartphone app when a video stream not recording is detected. As the name of this innovative new Software as a Service (SaaS) solution implies, PennyAlert is only a penny per day per video stream.
“Everybody knows that the elephant in the room in security is that in spite of the best gear, the best software, and the best people, video frequently fails to record. It’s costly and embarrassing, if not dangerous” said Bud Broomhead, CEO, Viakoo. “If your surveillance system stops recording video, you need to know about it immediately. PennyAlert sends push notifications when a problem occurs, eliminating informational truck rolls and removing the guesswork involved in pinpointing the issue. At a penny a day per stream, PennyAlert is an extremely cost-effective and efficient security solution for surveillance systems.”
With no software to maintain, and no sensors to place, read, or interpret, PennyAlert is easy to implement and use. Going beyond traditional monitoring tools PennyAlert provides automated application-aware diagnostics and recommends corrective actions. PennyAlert is the only SaaS solution that helps eliminate video downtime and reduce associated costs while ensuring optimum surveillance system performance and stability.
PennyAlert is ideal for a wide range of users and service models, whether running a video network of your own or one at a customer. Integrators using PennyAlert can easily manage multiple customers from a single platform, making customer support streamlined and proactive while greatly enhancing their service offering.“PennyAlert helps ensure that surveillance systems are functioning as they were designed to operate. It’s the new way of doing things,” concluded Mr. Broomhead.
