Next Level Security Systems, a developer of a new breed of unified, networked security solutions, announced that Orange County, Fla., has selected the NLSS Gateway (News - Alert) to manage public safety analytics.
Orange County officials were looking for a security platform to help manage disparate systems in facilities throughout the county, including the Orange (News - Alert) County Courthouse. They also required an IP-based system to streamline communication, reduce complex integration and have the option to remotely manage its security infrastructure remotely.
The NLSS Gateway from Next Level Security Systems was selected as a unified management platform for a security upgrade that will incorporate multiple public safety sites.
“Orange County is focused on providing the highest level of security to our residents, employees and visitors. We look to leverage technology that helps us deliver the right information, to the right people, at the right time.” said Peter Miller, chief security officer, Orange County, in a statement.
Analytics, according to Miller, enables them to provide more security with less staffing, saving money.
“We strive to provide low cost solutions that can run on low cost maintenance with high quality returns," Miller said.
NLSS Gateway helps the county capture video surveillance, run analytics and manage access control at county cell towers, the courthouse and other facilities. This information from the video and access systems is immediately correlated through the integrated appliance approach, giving a complete view of the overall system. The county will expand use of the system to its correctional facilities in the future.
Video analytics, built-in to the NLSS Gateway, enables the county’s security and IT teams to quickly identify potential security incidents. The Next Level Remote Management Services (RMS) provides users with remote access and management of the system from any Web-enabled device.
“Growing municipalities such as Orange County need security solutions that are flexible and scalable, and the NLSS Gateway enables the county to quickly and easily expand the security infrastructure as its risk profile evolves,” said Peter Jankowski, chairman and CEO, Next Level Security Systems, in a statement.
“Furthermore, the integrated appliance approach provides access to the entire security system, including integrated video and access control, from a single user interface,” Jankowski added. “When information from these systems is immediately correlated, security teams are provided with the data needed to make informed decisions to best enhance security and limit potential incidents.”
Recently, Next Level released the NLSS Gateway 2.2, an upgraded version of the award-winning NLSS Gateway product suite that includes the addition of powerful event-action linkages, forensic analytics and peer-to-peer connectivity, to provide users with more out of the box than previously offered by open security platforms.
