The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS solves the historical obstacles to cloud deployment, such as high bandwidth consumption, security/privacy vulnerabilities, and limited camera selection. Eagle Eye delivers Intelligent Bandwidth Management™ and Complete Privacy Encryption™, and supports a broad array of IP and analog cameras.
In other news today, Eagle Eye also announced its company debut. The company’s President and CEO Dean Drako was previously founder, President and CEO of Barracuda Networks, an IT security company.
The Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System is an on-demand secure VMS that is 100% cloud-managed. It offers anytime anywhere access to live and recorded video, provides comprehensive mobile applications, and consolidates multiple sites into a single view. The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS is currently deployed at a large variety of customers, spanning large and small businesses, retail, commercial, residential, and mixed use communities.
“The desire for on demand deployment, mobile viewing, instant alerts, off-premise video storage, high reliability, and reduced cost of ownership - including lower infrastructure investment - has been driving companies to evaluate cloud-based video systems,” said Drako. “However, to date, excessive bandwidth requirements and security vulnerability concerns have hindered broad adoption. We have spent the last 18 months working extensively with customers to ensure our Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS captures the full potential of the cloud and overcomes these challenges.”
Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System (VMS)
The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS gives companies the tools to meet their security and business operations goals:
Mobile and web video access with critical alerts
Companies can view their live and historic video with audio from mobile devices or any major web browsers from anywhere in the world. Businesses can set up email and SMS alerts for important items spanning activity, irregular activity, motion detection, camera malfunction, system tampering, and more.
They can also easily specify appropriate permission levels for different users to view and download video. The system is web/browser based, with role based management, therefore access can be given to different departments of the business for both security and operations management.
The VMS can be used for traditional security and loss prevention, as well as to achieve broader operations and business goals, such as training, verifying compliance, reducing slip and fall risk, optimizing product placement, store quality, raising customer service levels, and verifying operational hours.
Simple, fast on-demand deployment and support
Because Eagle Eye's system is on-demand and cloud based, there are no traditional DVRs, PCs, or software to buy and support. Eagle Eye’s on-premise bridge and cloud-managed video recording appliances require no networking expertise, router configuration, or software installation. All software is automatically upgraded and maintained for all customers. When using Eagle Eye cloud storage, companies don't need to worry about disk space, configurations, hardware failures, backups, or other IT tasks. The Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS uses a high reliability redundant cloud-based architecture so the customer's video data is always safe.
The retention period and the number of cameras can be adjusted at any point in time without having to purchase additional hardware or manage hard disks. It’s easy for customers to add cameras or sites when they need too. Most cameras can be configured and installed with a single click.
Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS Maximizes Cloud Benefits while Eliminating Drawbacks
Eagle Eye delivers several key technology breakthroughs to maximize cloud benefits and eliminate drawbacks.
1. Compatibility with most IP and analog cameras
Eagle Eye works with most ONVIF compatible cameras and most analog cameras. Resellers and businesses get maximum flexibility to utilize existing cameras and select optimal new cameras.
2. Eagle Eye Cloud-Premise Flex Storage™
Eagle Eye gives customers the flexibility to adjust the portion of video stored in the cloud and the portion stored on premise. Video can be stored entirely on premise, entirely in the cloud, or in any combination, based on the customer’s security requirements, such as eliminating the risk of evidence or system tampering, available bandwidth, number of cameras, and the customer’s application. The user has the same smooth experience with real-time video search and access, independent of the video storage location or user location.
3. Eagle Eye Complete Privacy Encryption™
Eagle Eye eliminates the security vulnerabilities commonly found in other systems. There are no open ports to the internet. The video is fully encrypted during transmission and fully encrypted at rest -- making evidence tampering nearly impossible.
4. Intelligent Bandwidth Management™
Earlier cloud recording systems faced challenges with bandwidth consumption. Eagle Eye’s unique, multi-layered bandwidth management technology means the system works with both small and large camera installations without requiring additional bandwidth. In addition the Cloud-Premise Flex Storage provides a consistent user interface regardless of where the video is stored.
Pricing and Availability
Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS is available immediately. Pricing starts at $299 for an on-premise bridge appliance with a $4.99/camera/month subscription.
Security Professionals Select Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS
Several companies have already validated and deployed Eagle Eye Networks Security Camera VMS including Royal Securities, Capital Factory, and Stonegate.
“We’ve deployed the Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS at three locations recently. Eagle Eye was extremely easy to implement, even for our installers who were experts on analog cameras rather than IP cameras,” said David Manento, President of Royal Securities. “Their digital IP camera system was just plug and play – we didn’t have to do any routing configuration. The images are great and it just works – the playback is always there when we need it. We manage video monitoring for our customers, and this level of reliability is critical.”
“Our Eagle Eye security camera system has 15 cameras across multiple floors of our 50,000 square foot facility. We have had a couple of security related incidents occur and were able to use the Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS to quickly and easily do the forensic search to identify the people involved,” said Sarah Cox, Operations Manager at Capital Factory. “Eagle Eye fully encrypts the video, so we know the content is completely secure – this is an absolute requirement for us. Eagle Eye does all the video management, so I can focus on other operations rather than worrying about managing system software or hardware.”
“We have a gated community, and given my own background in security and software, I knew exactly what I wanted in a security camera system for our entrance and exit. Eagle Eye Networks met my criteria,” said Phil Burks, Vice President of Stonegate Communities. “Eagle Eye not only had the mobile access we needed, but its off-premise recording means we don’t have to worry about anyone tampering with our video evidence. By having the Eagle Eye Security Camera VMS in place, we are offering our residential community a greater feeling of protection.”

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
