Comtrend Launches Innovative End-to-End Surveillance Solutions with Local and Cloud Storage Options

Comtrend, an industry leader in networking solutions, announced today its new end-to-end surveillance solutions. These surveillance solutions will include the hardware, software, and support needed for Service Providers to easily and successfully deploy surveillance systems for their customers.

Comtrend’s surveillance solutions will offer both local and cloud storage options. With the use of cloud storage, Service Providers can offer multiple new services such as active system status monitoring and concierge services. Service Providers will be able to actively monitor the health of their customers’ surveillance systems with features such as motion sensor alerts, camera connect/disconnect alerts, and recording start/stop alerts. Service Providers can also offer concierge services for various situations. For example, if an end customer requests to have a clip of a particular date/time that they believe an event occurred in their home, Service Providers can easily look up that event and provide the customer with the requested video clip. In addition, cloud storage offers infinite scalability opportunities.

John DiFrenna, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Comtrend North America comments, “When Comtrend first set out to offer surveillance solution options, we knew that we did not want to simply offer great hardware. There are plenty of companies that offer broad camera catalogs and that can be a low value add business. Instead, we partnered with Smartvue to create a true solution that is at its core an end-to-end surveillance package. We designed the solution with a focus on ease of implementation, optimized user experience and with an initiative to offer a viable and logical MRR [Monthly Recurring Revenue] option. Our Service Providers need easy to deploy premium services to continue to increase their individual customer value, drive higher ASPs [Average Selling Price] and ultimately create barriers to their competitors. Our surveillance category and solutions achieve this objective. We have been a partner to Service Providers for more than a decade, and we will maintain our commitment to bring them competitive offerings for their business and residential customers. Many service providers are ready and willing to offer this type of solution- they just needed a technology partner they could trust.”

Comtrend’s all-in-one surveillance solutions offer an easy setup and installation for business and residential applications. With video going to the cloud, there is no port forwarding configuration, static IP address, or DDNS needed. These end-to-end solutions consist of a product lineup of PoE switches, IP cameras, network video recorders (NVR), as well as the software/app for remote-device viewing capability (mobile phone, tablet, laptop, etc.). With a unique per camera video storage retention feature, users can assign individual cameras specific storage durations to optimize their storage. For example, if a user would like their front door IP Camera to store more video than an IP Camera indoors, it is as simple as a click of a button. Comtrend’s surveillance solutions also feature video assurance. If the NVR is vandalized or destroyed, the ability to review the video is unaffected because the video is stored online.

CEO of Smartvue, Martin Renkis, comments, “The Smartvue S12 cloud surveillance platform that Comtrend is implementing is new to the industry. The move to a cloud-based solution allows for managing and monitoring video surveillance from any device, anywhere in the world through a simple and elegant interface.”

Comtrend’s surveillance solutions utilize Microsoft Azure for unparalleled data security. In combination with Smartvue’s S12 solution, Comtrend’s surveillance solutions are a low-risk, high reward opportunity for Service Providers.
