FutureSentry Aligns With Mi5 Security

FutureSentry, a developer of automated detection solutions designed for proactive security, today announced it has entered into a strategic agreement with Mi5 Security, a provider of wireless outdoor surveillance cameras and cloud-based management services, to jointly develop a solar-powered, wireless automated detection system designed for areas where there is no or limited infrastructure. The combined solution is optimized to filter out false alarms and enable reliable situational monitoring in any outdoor location.

The partnership between the companies will result in a joint solution that will combine Mi5 Security’s remote surveillance technologies with the FutureSentry First Responder. The First Responder is an automated detection solution that utilizes advanced algorithms to automatically identify and track potentially dangerous targets within 700 feet. It illuminates detected motion with a high-intensity LED light to deter potential criminal behavior. The Mi5 Redeye camera is a wireless, low maintenance camera that can be installed anywhere. RedEye communicates with Mi5’s cloud-based management system, which optimizes the transmission of video over cellular networks, to provide low cost and efficient communication to remote devices. Alerts and footage are immediately available online and securely accessed via a smart phone or any network device.

Normally a fixed-position camera, Redeye will rely on FutureSentry’s sensor input and the 360-degree rotating First Responder platform to enable monitoring of safety and environmental factors in critical infrastructure sites. The combination of these technologies reduces the need for multiple hardware purchases for outdoor sites. The FutureSentry First Responder and the Redeye camera system enhance security without wiring, trenching or hard-wired power, reducing its environmental footprint and installation costs.

“The market demands an integrated, cost-effective solution for securing and monitoring remote and exposed locations. By offering this technology-based solution and service to the market, we can fulfill this market need,” said Helen Wattie, Chief Executive Officer, Mi5 Security. “Mi5 technologies combined with the First Responder deliver a comprehensive and proactive security solution that promises to redefine the market need for perimeter security.”

As part of the agreement, FutureSentry will work closely with Mi5 to develop firmware and hardware modifications to its First Responder platform, synchronizing the two units for maximum efficiency. FutureSentry plans to offer the combined security solution to its current integrator and reseller partners and the Mi5 sales team will deliver FutureSentry opportunities in the Australian and New Zealand markets.

“We look forward to working alongside Mi5 Security as a strategic business partner. The company’s technical expertise and vision was a key driver in its selection both as a strategic partner and as an early adopter to further test and validate our technology,” said Rolland Trayte, President and CEO, FutureSentry. “FutureSentry’s award-winning innovations combined with Mi5’s surveillance camera produces a crime-deterring and remote monitoring solution that delivers proactive and reactive security in countless applications.”

The two companies will undertake extensive beta testing of the joint solution in a variety of security and environmental applications, and plan to launch the product at ISC West 2013.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
