Hikvision offers cloud-based service
Hikvision has launched Hik-ProConnect, a convergent, cloud-based service solution with a suite of signature features and benefits. With Hik-ProConnect, users can converge Hikvision devices to cover video, intrusion, access control, intercom and more to address their various needs. Users can also authorise their professional security partners to complete necessary system management, such as remote system health checks and maintenance.
Frank Zhang, President of the International Product and Solution Center at Hikvision, stated, ‘Today, millions of devices are being connected into networks, including cameras and other security equipment, making them part of the IoT world. We believe the security industry is ready for a new type of cloud-based systems and services. Hik-ProConnect addresses the needs of today’s market, offering cutting-edge technologies, convergence, straightforward system configuration and service delivery, greatly boosting users’ security capabilities and providing increased efficiency and peace of mind.
Because the system is cloud-based, it can be deployed on-demand, with no server or local VMS needed, which means no large upfront investment. Through Hik-ProConnect’s unified web portal, devices can be added in batches and configured quickly, reducing installation time and costs.
Users who incorporate and authorise Remote System Management and Health Monitoring will enjoy an always-on system supported by their professional security partners. The Hik-ProConnect portal can identify and resolve device failures, communications loss, and other issues remotely and efficiently; users are automatically notified of the latest updates on their mobile devices.
Hik-ProConnect brings disparate devices together to increase security as a whole, expanding both performance and value for users. This goes beyond conventional systems made up of disparate elements. Integration of devices provides users with flexible methods for setting rules for event types, time schedules and triggered actions. Examples of device linkage include merging intercom calls and intrusion or access events with video verification.
Users can access and manage their connected devices with one login and on one platform from anywhere, at any time. The solution supports both web-based portal and mobile app. Hik-ProConnect employs industry standards and protocols for maximum security and reliability. This includes the TLS protocol for private and secure data transmission, a user-defined AES encryption key for stream encryption, and more.
