CHeKT Bridge Named Best Commercial Monitoring Product At ISC West
he CHeKT Bridge is named the 2019 Commercial Monitoring Product of the Year at the 2019 SIA New Product Showcase Awards, the award show at ISC West that recognises innovative security products, services and solutions. ISC West is the largest converged security trade show in the US. In 2019 the 30 judges for the award show reviewed more than 95 entries from more than 80 companies for technologies covering more than 30 product and service categories. The CHeKT Bridge is a revolutionary hardware device that allows a professional security integrator to 'bridge'any alarm panel to any ONVIF compliant camera or recorder. Developed by CHeKT, provider of a visual-monitoring platform for alarm monitoring centres, the CHeKT Bridge pairs on-site cameras with sensors on new or existing security panels. The platform-agnostic Bridge manages cameras locally allowing an operator to access video instantly, unencumbered by firewalls and login credentials.
When a sensor of any kind goes into an alarm state, the Alarm Inputs on the Bridge record pre- and post-alarm video of the event and immediately upload this to the CHeKT Monitoring portal. Simultaneously, the bridge sends the applicable video to the cloud for viewing by the operator processing the alarm, enabling visual verification of the situation and premises within five seconds. This powerful simplistic approach allows central stations to provide a much higher level of service without increasing signal traffic or increasing the time an operator spends processing an alarm signal. The operator can forward the clip, via SMS text, to the emergency contacts when additional verification is necessary, and to the police responding to the alarm. sst
