AndroPedia Tech Library
As part of our service, it is important to keep our client-partners well informed on Access Control system developments, news, and best practices. Here is just a sampling of typical items from our AndroPediaSM library archive:
Last month we dove into three functions integrated security can offer your business: Enhanced Environment Regulations, Productivity Boosters and Visitor Management. (check out part 1 in case you missed it)
In this second part of our two part series on Integrated Security we will dive into a couple more features and introduce you to the Honeywell Pro-Watch Ecosystem.
Integrated Security – It Does A Whole Lot More Than You Thought Part 2
Employee Training & Certification Management – I know what you are thinking. How can a security system help me manage my employee certifications and training? Well, with applications and the right security suite, you are able to manage this information easily. On top of that, you can connect these pieces of information to key fobs and employee access protocols. For example, imagine your facility requires certain certifications and ongoing training for compliance reasons. You can monitor employee information. Fobs will automatically shut off access to controlled areas of your building if an employee does not have the proper documentation on file. This is only one piece of Compliance Report Management available to you with a professional integrated security suite. Never spend time worrying about compliance for NERC, Title 21 HIPAA, TSA etc. again.
Mass Notification – with integrated communications management you have the ability to automate notifications to assigned groups. The most common use for this is to send out information. Most notably to customers, employees and community members about closings, weather alerts and/or other urgent information. Get your message to the masses with a few clicks of a button!
Now, with all of these features in mind, it is important to point out that not EVERY integrated security suite provides these features. One of the most important things you need to be aware of when considering your solution is whether it is open or closed platform.
An open platform solution integrates easily with third-party systems. This means you can customize your solution to the needs unique to your business. As new technologies emerge and new software comest to market, an open platform system will grow with you. These same flexibilities are not easily attained with a close system product.
Ultimately, this is why Andromeda Technology Solutions partners with Honeywell to provide our customers a range of professional integrated security options via the Pro-Watch Ecosystem.

Security cameras are an important addition to any business. You spend so much time building your business, protecting it from threats is a top priority and you get that. There are many features and decisions you must consider when choosing the right system for your unique needs. Whether you choose IP cameras or high quality digital, whether you go with fixed view, 360 degree or PTZ (pan tilt zoom); these are just a few of the many decisions you will weigh while picking out your solution.
We help businesses design, install and maintain these systems every day. The system itself is important but there is one feature you should really consider adding when you invest in your business-grade system – camera cloud storage & backup.
The cloud is everywhere in business these days. It can host your servers, improve productivity via software and applications, even our phones are now being hosted in the clouds. With all this movement towards cloud solutions, it is no surprise that cameras and the way we manage them are now moving to the cloud as well.
Camera Cloud Storage & Backup for your security footage/data is scalable – even unlimited.
You installed your camera system. You are recording video footage. All cameras are capturing proper angles and views. A year goes by, the system is functioning properly and you haven’t had any complaints or issues. One random weekday, an employee files a complaint that their car was damaged in your parking lot. You think, “We have cameras, this won’t be an issue”. Then the employee explains that this incident occurred over a month ago. You go to look through your camera footage and realize your system only retains data for up to 30 days.
No footage – Now we have a problem.
Your on premise recording device has a maximum capacity. There is no avoiding it. Sure you can add memory or change recording settings to try and squeeze more data in. However, the reality is your hardware has limits.
Enter security camera cloud storage for your camera system. With the cloud, you gain access to an unlimited amount of storage space. This means that you can save footage for days, months, years and beyond. No worries about recording over critical moments.
Camera Cloud Storage and Backup is the disaster recovery plan for your security cameras.
We spend a lot of time helping our clients prevent disaster . The same level of attention you give your network should be paid to the other technologies your business depends on. Disaster strikes in many forms: flood, fire, malware, theft etc.
Take theft for example. A clever criminal knows that it is important to either steal or destroy your recording equipment to avoid capture. If you are storing your data and footage offsite, even though the DVR or NVR is no longer functioning, you can still view the incident and maintain footage from the event in the cloud.
Camera Cloud Storage is a budget friendly option.
Recording devices are expensive. Depending on the type of recording equipment, number of cameras, desired backlog of footage . . . a recording device can easily cost you thousands of dollars. Some expenses are unavoidable. Nevertheless, if you want a hybrid system cameras or other special features, you are going to be investing a lot on the front end in hardware. BUT, there is an alternative to expensive hardware and add on features when it comes to extending the storage capabilities of your devices – the cloud.
Camera cloud storage is much more budget friendly than adding new equipment and hardware to the equation. You can purchase as much or as little as you need to get the job done and set a specific budget aside annually.
In summary, camera cloud storage and backups are a fantastic add on to your professional security system. The cloud allows for scalability, budgeting and disaster recovery.
This month we are offering a special on cloud storage – get 2 months FREE with a one year subscription to cloud storage for your security system.
Reach out to a representative or your account manager today to discuss how this solution may be easily implemented or fill out the form below to take advantage of this promotional offer: good thru July 31st 2017.
The post Camera Cloud Storage & Backup: The Add-On Feature Your Security Cameras Need appeared first on Andromeda Technology Solutions.
Researchers from the Israeli security firm Armis have discovered a new security flaw in BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) chips that expose millions of access points and networking devices around the world. This opened the door to a new hack.
The flaw has been dubbed "BleedingBit" and is actually two separate vulnerabilities that could allow a hacker to execute code or take complete control over a vulnerable device without the need of a password.� What makes BleedingBit an especially dangerous flaw is the fact that a wide range of medical devices including pacemakers and insulin pumps can be targeted, along with other IoT devices and point of sale terminals.
According to the research team, the attack works as follows:
"First, the attacker sends multiple benign BLE broadcast messages called Advertising Packets, which will be stored on the memory of the vulnerable BLE chip in the targeted device.
Next, the attacker sends the overflow packet, which is a standard advertising packet with a subtle alteration - a specific bit in its header is turned ON instead of off.� This bit causes the chip to allocate the information from the packet a much larger space than it really needs, triggering an overflow of critical memory in the process."
It should be noted that in order to execute the attack, a hacker would need to be in close proximity to the target device. Of course, once it has been compromised, it can be accessed again at will remotely, monitoring network traffic, conducting man in the middle attacks, or launching additional attacks on other devices connected to the targeted device.
The Armis researchers responsibly reported their findings and the chip manufacturer, Texas Instruments, has confirmed the vulnerabilities and has already released patches for the affected hardware.
If your company uses BLE chips in any aspect of your business, be sure to grab the latest update.
