Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
Apartments Move Away from Analog DVR’s to a Digital Hosted Solution using ControlByNet, a software development leader in cloud-based video surveillance solutions, who is showcasing its Multifamily Surveillance Solution today at the Atlanta Apartment Association Trade Show in booth 714. A growing number of Atlanta’s multi-site communities are using ControlByNet’s i-flashback CLOUD as the solution for their locations that are looking for a single web login that provides access to video surveillance from all their properties.
“We continue to see more multi-site communities ditch their DVRs, however there remains a learning gap with multifamily communities and the benefits of cloud-based video surveillance. We want to help educate users on how solutions like our cloud-based offerings provide a reliable and cost-effective solution," said Ryan Strange, CEO of ControlByNet. "With no video storage onsite, email alerts when problems arrive and nothing for vandals to steal, our solution provides a greater sense of security and deters malicious vandalism."
Accessible by smartphones, tablets and computer browsers, the ControlByNet solution is software-based and the technology can be updated regularly as needed. ControlByNet’s managed solution always has the latest features, whereas a DVR stuck in a closet will only ever have the features that existed when it was installed, and will only support older mobile devices. Additionally, with ControlByNet, the hosted video is always safe and secure on the cloud versus recorded locally and uploaded later to a storage device or left on a DVR that can be stolen by vandals.
The ControlByNet solution provides benefits for a variety of property sizes including:
● Larger Properties - ControlByNet provides managed servers, which eliminates the need for onsite staff to maintain, since CBN provides notification of camera problems and helps track videos of events (vandalism, theft, etc.)
● Smaller Properties - With ControlByNet, smaller properties can have video fully hosted off the property… safely secured in the ControlByNet facility.
● Executive and District Managers - ControlByNet provides a single and simple login so they have one website login for access to all of their properties
ControlByNet recently added six Atlanta apartment communities in April that chose to move away from their existing analog systems to ControlByNet’s digital, hosted video solution.
"The ControlByNet solution lets us concentrate on day-to-day tasks while they ensure our surveillance is operating effectively," said Rick Nute of Laurel Oaks Communities. "The ability to access our video on the go with our smartphones, combined with a single login-in for our team, has made ControlByNet an invaluable tool for our team. In addition, since the video is always stored on the cloud there’s never any chance of the video being stolen or damaged."
The Atlanta Apartment Association trade show is the South’s largest show dedicated to the apartment industry, and one of the largest in the country. The Atlanta Apartment Association trade show takes place at Cobb Galleria Centre in Exhibit Halls A, B & C
