S e CU r I t Y SYS tem S N e WS September 2017 Monitoring 23 By Spencer Ives HENDERSON, Nev.—I-View Now in late June announced an integration with Eagle Eye Networks; I-View Now president Larry Folsom talked with Security Systems News about how the integration stands out. "The I-View Now integra- tion with Eagle Eye Networks is a cloud-to- cloud integra- tion," Folsom said in an email interview. "We appreciate the architecture in that it is a smart appliance that can be used with inexpensive or expensive cameras depending on the opportunity and requirements. We think this is important for scale (as opposed to cloud systems that require expen- sive cameras). We found the Eagle Eye Networks APIs to be robust and well thought out." Folsom discussed how the part- nership will benefit I-View Now's customers. "We believe this is another great video partner for our dealers and central stations to utilize while pro- tecting their customers," Folsom said. "It is import to see that the Eagle Eye Networks video will work with all I-View Now compat- ible signaling integrations (security systems) and will play in the same universal player for operators, end users, and law enforcement." Folsom noted that I-View Now has had a busy year; it partnered with COPS Monitoring and earlier this year announced that cam- eras from Bosch, OpenEye and Hikvision can now come I-View Now Ready. "We currently have a backlog but we are working our way through it and have been actively hiring engineers to build out the team to support the demand," he said. When asked what the company is currently working on, Folsom pointed to the company's work with Digital Barriers, announced in early June. "This integration is fun because every clip we produce will be pro- cessed with the video analytic," said Folsom. "The process will add intelligence (percent of likelihood of a person) to all of our existing video integrations to reduce false alarms and add bounding boxes so the agent and the end user can see where the changes occurred." SS n I-View n ow integrates with Eagle Eye self-service kind of things are definitely value added," Ellison said. Gallaher is also focus- ing on building out its AES network, which it rebranded as Intelli-G. "Helping people get away from phone lines … and getting them onto that radio network is definitely a way we're helping our customers be code compli- ant," said Ellison.
