OnVu360, Award-Winning iOS App, Now Available for Android Operating Systems

Oncam Grandeye, the security division of Oncam Technologies, was the
first company to offer its customers a free, downloadable app so they
could utilize the de-warping abilities of its award-winning 360-degree
surveillance cameras on a mobile device. The company, clearly on to
something, has broadened its scope to encompass the Android market, and
is now reaching nearly 96 percent of mobile users worldwide.
“Even though the OnVu360 App for iOS has been downloaded more than
25,000 times, we’ve barely scratched the surface in terms of the mobile
market,” said Adam Pineau, president of engineering and system solutions
for Oncam Technologies. “OnVu360 for Android will help us reach more
than 4,000 additional devices, each providing the same groundbreaking
experience our customers have grown to love and expect from Oncam
The iOS app, quietly introduced in November 2012, placed Oncam Grandeye
at the forefront of a new trend in the industry – the remote and mobile
management of business intelligence and security systems. Oncam Grandeye
puts business-quality surveillance, its patented de-warping facility
and, with the OnVu360 Platform, business-critical intelligence at its
customers’ fingertips— literally—giving them the ability to monitor
their Oncam Grandeye 360-degree cameras and analytics in real time,
enabling 24/7/365 access to business-critical information. The app
features zero latency, and is able to change its viewpoint and
perspective as the user utilizes the pinch-to-zoom features of any iOS
or Android device.
But beware: Watching is addictive.
Currently, the app provides both live and recorded streams—live views of
Oncam Grandeye’s U.S. headquarters in Lowell, Mass., and The Aria
Marquee in Las Vegas; recorded views of a Subway store in Santa Monica;
a café, and the Hammersmith Road in London. Users may add one customized
camera stream for free, or add all their cameras through the in-app
The OnVu 360 app provides unlimited access from a 1-megapixel to a
5-megapixel stream and supports Oncam Grandeye's full line of IP
cameras, with its only requirement being the use of iOS version 6.0 or
higher or Android version 4.0 or higher. Streaming is available over
Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G/LTE connectivity.
Both the iOS and Android versions provide the baseline for future apps
that will populate the recently released OnVu360 Remote Management
Platform, which can integrate with, monitor, store, manage and analyze a
wide variety of information types, including point-of-sale (POS) data,
customer demographics, IP devices, Zigbee / ZWave enabled equipment,
employee-performance data, as well as Oncam’s own patented
high-definition 360-degree video streams.
“Mobile Apps are no longer viewed as supplements to a larger system, and
in many ways they are becoming the primary method of interfacing with
surveillance, business intelligence and device-management systems,” says
Pineau. “We have big plans for our OnVu360 family of applications over
the next few months as we prepare to offer new innovation around
360-degree technology and the mobile experience."
In the meantime, people seem to enjoy watching.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.
