Solution Description

Sentinel provides all the services needed to help alarm and video monitoring service providers on a single platform. Sentinel comes with a wide range of tailor-made features for system providers, such as mobile interfaces, configurable alarms screens, an automatic alarm dispatch, graphical performance dashboard, automatic report generation, and automated billing. With Hik-ProConnect, systems integrators can easily enroll compatible Hikvision devices into the Sentinel system, providing transparency and control for alarm and video monitoring service providers. Device enrollment is a simple, 3-step process (of which the two first steps are usually completed beforehand). Once enrolled, alarm center operators can view the live feed and playback video, receive alarms/events, and control PTZ cameras. Alarms can be processed in the Sentinel alarm engine, allowing the operator to set up bespoke events to actions.
