Connected Technologies LLC, provider of cloud-hosted security management platforms and Digital Watchdog (DW), unveiled new integrations between DW Spectrum and Connect ONE that provide deeper reporting and management controls for dealers and their customers.

With the expanded integration, dealers can add new feature sets, events and notifications gathered from DW Spectrum’s VMS, NVR or surveillance cameras for viewing and control on the Connect ONE, all-in-one interface.

“Connect ONE is focused on expanding the possibilities for integrated systems for our dealer-customers,” said Dan Simon, co-founder and managing partner, Connected Technologies, in a prepared statement. “This integration gives dealers the ability to provide more value in their managed services offerings through Connect ONE.”

Connect ONE’s users can receive events to monitor the health status of the NVR or perform special logging of activities or analytics. All Connect ONE Event Rules can be activated in response to NVR events such as report logging, notifications to users and system control – including arming, disarming, output control and lockdown.

Connect ONE pushed system events such as arming, alarm, access, trouble and audit changes to the NVR are supported. Events are shown on the DW Spectrum interface to indicate the source and type of event along with a text description, such as user, zone, door, area, etc.

“We are excited to see our technology partners take a deeper dive into DW Spectrum’s open architecture and all the functionality it offers,” said Patrick Kelly, director of IP Video Solutions, DW. “ConnectOne’s ability to simplify integration with a wide variety of technology really presents an opportunity for DW Dealers to provide complete solutions.”

DW Spectrum and Connect ONE integrate via direct network connection or DW Cloud. Following set up, users can retrieve a camera list for quick and easy configuration, view live video, search playback recordings, record snapshots upon an event from intrusion/access system for video verification and review a 10-second pre-event and up to a 45-second post event video clip.
