MONUMENT, Colo., and LIBERTY LAKE, Wash.—Connected Technologies LLC and OpenEye announced a new integration between OpenEye Web Services and Connect ONE.

Connect ONE by Connected Technologies is a cloud-hosted integrated security management platform which provides a single user interface to control intrusion, access control, critical environmental monitoring, energy management and video surveillance. OpenEye OWS is an online video management solution that combines the performance and reliability of local recording with the convenience and flexibility of the cloud. Now, the OpenEye NVR and the Connect ONE cloud platform are accessible directly through the OWS cloud.

“We’re excited to offer this capability to OpenEye and Connect ONE users,” Rick Sheppard, chief executive officer of OpenEye, said in a prepared statement. “OpenEye is committed to offering integrated solutions that add value and enhance functionality for our customers through strategic partnerships such as this one.”

The integration eliminates the need to connect to an IP address or open an inbound port on the end-user’s network firewall, the announcement said. Once connected, Connect ONE users can retrieve and configure OpenEye cameras, view live video, record snapshots upon an event from the Intrusion/Access System for video verification or review a 10-second pre-event and up to 45-second post-event video clip. Another future feature release will include the ability to receive OpenEye NVR health status reporting as well as motion or input trigger events through Connect ONE.

Dan Simon, co-founder and managing partner of Connected Technologies, said in the announcement that technology partnerships with industry leaders such as OpenEye allow dealers to add new capabilities and services to their customer’s systems. “Connected Technologies is founded on delivering the timeliest solutions to security dealers. In fact, this integration was created due to dealer’s requests. The OpenEye integration adds value to their projects, brings exciting capabilities through a single user interface and helps them differentiate their service offerings.”
