Avocado Security releases Consolidator 3.0

WASHINGTON, DC (October 28, 2009), Avocado Security, the world’s pioneer of the On-Demand Security and BI Optimization Platform, today announced availability of Avocado Consolidator version 3.0 at ISC East’s annual trade event. As organizations expand security operations their needs are ever increasing for a unifying security platform to consolidate all of their DVRs, Analog and IP cameras. Avocado’s agnostic suite is an interoperability platform which enables clients to retain their existing security investment, and extract more life out of their pre-existing or legacy CCTV security systems. Now, with Avocado Security’s cutting-edge technology, millions of security images from diverse and proprietary CCTV cameras and DVRs can be automated and even translated into intelligent, usable, security, business data and statistics.

“Avocado Consolidator has a strong ability to help clients consolidate proprietary systems, centrally manage security equipment and to continue to use their pre-existing DVRs and cameras. This helps to keep our clients years ahead while reducing cost,” said Kevin Shahbazi, CEO of Avocado Security. “With numerous Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) we are delivering an agnostic platform which helps our clients to enhance their security and response time, and to unify their alarm management systems.”

Avocado Consolidator is built on an Open Architecture Convergence platform which enables organizations to gain meaningful security and business value from the "edge" of their security networks; thereby, providing measurable value to organizations across the entire enterprise. The new features give increased control over the performance and quality of hundreds of security images, and further increases the abilities of security personnel and management to optimize their operations whether in one location, across a region or across the globe.

Another key advantage of Avocado Security’s technology is that it is device (DVR) agnostic. Avocado Security can convert video images from the existing security equipment that comes from one vendor, or from multiple equipment vendors (GE, Honeywell, Bosch, Siemens etc.) and translate those images into usable data. Examples of data that can be provided include, the number of times an elevator door opened, or a high level of traffic at a particular entrance or exit, or, if more traffic is at the loading dock of a hotel, than the front entrance lobby. By looking at security monitors and images alone, such information cannot be extracted.
