The Integration of Security And IoT

Verdafero offers an IoT and Utilities monitoring service (image)

The Integration of Security And IoT | #Verdafero #Security #IoT #Monitoring |  Security has many faces, whether it’s the hardened, Grade 1 locks on all the perimeter man doors throughout a building, electronic access control, video surveillance cameras, fire detection equipment, or the IoT devices that monitors a variety of critical services, such as  temperature, humidity, air flow, pressure, or the integrity and quality of any one of several utilities that clients depend on.

If there was ever a time when integration between the various facets of security, life safety, and general commercial Internet of Things (IoT) might occur, it’s now.

Monitoring Electric Utility usage is one of many applications for Verdafero's Cloud-based, AI-driven service (image)The Central Monitoring Station (CMS) that Security Integrators and Alarm Dealers use is equipped to monitor the physical security elements of a facility, but not necessarily IoT devices that output analog data. Not only that, but traditional CMS’ are not readily capable of analyzing multiple streams of Big Data (BD) for anomalies that might occur. But there is a solution to this problem that is capable of including the positive attributes of a CMS.

In the area of Utility BD, “Verdafero’s Utility and IoT monitoring and analytics platform uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to capture, analyze, report and predict variable, broad-based utility expense information found from many data sources,” says Alastair Hood, Ph.D. and CEO of Verdafero.

Verdafero’s Cloud-based processing center will utilize  your favorite CMS’ API (Application Programming Interface), thus allowing your CMS to act on alerts issued by the AI platform.

According to Hood, “Using Verdafero, security service providers can now actively analyze and compare the performance of similar client properties and benchmark them  against other properties within their portfolio to help clients better  understand the opportunities to reduce overhead expenses.”

Biamp Announces Direct to Market Distribution in the United Kingdom and Ireland | #TpromoCom #Biamp #Financial #Business |  Biamp, a leading supplier of professional audiovisual solutions based in Beaverton, Oregon, USA, today announced the implementation of a dealer-direct model in the United Kingdom and Ireland, which will enhance the company’s ability to support customers and drive growth.

Following the recent opening of the company’s new European headquarters in Antwerp, Belgium, and UK sales office in London, Biamp is now transitioning to dealer-direct model to strengthen the company’s sales, support, and product distribution in the region. In addition to some direct accounts, Biamp will be working with Midwich, Leisuretech, and Professional Audio in Northern Ireland—in all cases, served by Biamp’s sales and support staff. This enables the company to more aggressively pursue opportunities in all target vertical markets: corporate, food service and hospitality, retail, large venues, education, religion, sports and leisure, and outdoor applications.

“With the UK being one of the biggest and most important markets in Europe, we are confident that our decision to go direct will allow us to serve our partners more effectively. Bringing on board an experienced UK sales force coupled with an expanded pre- and post-sales support team will allow us to engage dealers more fully in the UK and Ireland markets. This, in combination with our consultant support and vertical business development group, will ensure that we achieve our ambitious growth plans for the region. We are convinced this is the best way to promote beneficial synergies between Biamp DSP products, microphones, loudspeakers, amplifiers and complementary electronics,” comments Kris Vermuyten, General Manager, Biamp Europe.

The funds are being allocated in $5,000 and $10,000 increments to nonprofits in communities where ADT employees live and work. Local ADT teams are determining which charities to support with choices ranging from soup kitchens and homeless shelters to first responder organizations or any other nonprofit which serves those in need.

The check presentations will start May 18 and continue through June. One of the first $10,000 recipients will be Gleaners, an Indianapolis food bank that has distributed over a half a billion pounds of food since 1980.

“Gleaners is navigating the hunger relief crisis associated with COVID-19. We are grateful for the ADT contribution which will help us provide emergency food boxes throughout our service area to hungry Hoosiers, many of whom find themselves struggling to put food on the table for the first time,” said John Elliott, President and CEO of Gleaners.

Verdafero’s Water Utility Monitoring Saves Big!

Verdafero monitors any type of utility, even in a chemical plant (image)

Verdafero’s Water Utility Monitoring Saves Big! | #Verdafero #WaterMonitoring #UtilityMonitoring | The overall cost of metered water is rising. Anyone who owns a home or business in an area where water is provided by a municipality knows how true this is.

According to CBS News, “Americans this year will pay an average of $104 per month in water and wastewater bills, up more than 30% in less than a decade” (https://cbsn.ws/3fJxyi4).

As an alarm dealer or security integrator, you may be wondering, “How can I sell Utility Monitoring to an established client when it’s  hard enough to approach them about updating their aged alarm system?” 

The answer to that is simple, you educate them as to what Utility Monitoring can do for them. First and foremost, with Verdafero’s Cloud-based analytics, you can alert them when a leak occurs. This same service also can alert your client when a piece of equipment is in the process of requiring maintenance. 

Because Vertafero’s Cloud-based analytical computing system uses Big Data, Machine Learning (ML), you can monitor several utilities at the same time, such  as: 

      • Water
      • Electricity
      • Natural Gas
      • Propane
      • Fuel Oil
      • and others…

Monitoring is accomplished using IoT-based sub-meters equipped with WiFi or Ethernet, in conjunction with your regular central station. Verdafero also can suggest one if required; and we can help you put it all together!
