Diebold, Eagle Eye announce alliance
Diebold, Incorporated and Eagle Eye Networks, Inc., have formalized the security industry’s first national strategic alliance to deliver cloud-based video services in the U.S.
The new video solutions will offer services that stream and store live and recorded video, provide flexible cloud storage, and generate notification and real-time analytics. Customers will be able to access and manage these new video services from Diebold’s centralized software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution – SecureStat.
Diebold SecureStat, Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System and Eagle Eye Video Application Programming Interface (API) make cloud-based monitoring easy-to-use, scalable, secure and reliable. In addition, it enables deployment flexibility for multi-location customers—allowing more choices for local and cloud-based applications that maximize customer investments, whether integrating IP-enabled or legacy analog cameras.
“Diebold is the first security integrator and alarm services company to leverage the power of an open API strategy and service offering. As Eagle Eye’s national integrator and alarm services partner, Diebold will deliver the true benefits of cloud-based solutions to its commercial and financial customers across North America,” said Dean Drako, chief executive officer of Eagle Eye Networks. “It’s exciting to partner with a service provider who shares our API strategy and technology vision; an approach that has revolutionized other industries and will do the same for the security industry.”
“We are excited to partner with Eagle Eye Networks, to bring the future of cloud-based video security services to the market,” said Tony Byerly, executive vice president, Diebold Electronic Security. “Eagle Eye Networks has developed the industry’s first cloud-based video solution with an open API. This is the future of security as we continue to leverage APIs to create a connected security program for businesses, starting with easy-to-use cloud-based video services.”
Diebold will integrate and utilize the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera Video Management System at Diebold monitoring centers and showcase selected applications at its Electronic Security Center of Excellence in New York.
